HIMSS would like to thank all our sponsors and speakers who contributed to the success of HIMSS Middle East Health Innovations Conference.

We would also like to extend a special thank you to all the delegates for their participation.

Dr. Manal Taryam, CEO, Primary Healthcare and CEO, Noor Dubai, welcomed GCC healthcare leaders and international experts to the Conference, which took place at the JW Marriott Marquis hotel in Dubai.

The two-day event, supported by the Dubai Health Authority, Health Authority Abu Dhabi, SEHA and Dubai Healthcare City, addressed the key issues of how the latest innovative smart technology could help to improve healthcare in ways never imagined before.

A panel of regional leaders at the roundtable presented a strategic road map - what IT infrastructure is in place today and how government agencies can pool resources to advance healthcare delivery.


Winners of the inaugural HIMSS Middle East Integrated Health Innovation Awards.

On day-2 of the event, the awards were launched to recognise excellence in innovative technology and care practice throughout the UAE and the wider region.

A total of 11 shortlisted awards nominees were asked to conduct a 11-minute product demonstration, with a peer judging process whereby conference delegates evaluated and rated each product across three different categories of award.

The complete list of winners included:

  • UAE Ministry of Health for Community Health Award

  • Nuance for Acute Care Award

  • Smart Care for mHealth Award


The HIMSS Middle East Health Innovations Conference attracted a broad spectrum of HIT decision makers.

Our first Integrated Health Innovations Conference brought together over 450 delegates including many government VIPs and a high number of healthcare IT leaders from across the Middle East.
