All healthcare facilities licensed by the Abu Dhabi Department of Health (“DOH”) are required to participate in the Abu Dhabi Health Information Exchange (“HIE”), Malaffi. All healthcare facilities are required to integrate with the Malaffi platform this year, in accordance with the Malaffi launch schedule. Additionally, the DOH intends to make on-boarding to the Malaffi platform a pre-requisite for applying for new or renewing healthcare facility licences in Abu Dhabi, effective 1 April 2021.
In the event that any facilities have still not completed all of the Malaffi assessments, such as the participation agreement, facility declaration, questionnaires, or security assessments, DOH has requested that these be completed immediately.
In order to integrate with the HIE, facilities are required to implement an electronic medical record system (“EMR”) that is interoperable with Malaffi, prior to integrating with the platform. Such EMR’s are required to be implemented prior to the end of the year, and must be in compliance with DOH standards. Further, participation in Malaffi must comply with the DOH Policy on Abu Dhabi Health Information Exchange (“ADHIE”).
Malaffi (Arabic for ‘my file’) has been developed with the intention of being a “centralized database of real-time public health information, making syndromic surveillance and management of chronic diseases possible by identifying potential spread of disease, helping prevent epidemics and enabling the government to create medical response action plans to ensure public health and safety”. Malaffi currently reports that it has executed agreements with 2,057 healthcare facilities and connected with 622 healthcare facilities, thus far.
