The centre provides customers with medical fitness services using high-tech health care solutions, AI and Internet of Things (IoT). This enables the centre to complete medical fitness processes with limited human interference, reducing time of completion to 30 minutes and eliminates any errors.

The centre is equipped with futuristic digital technology, modern medical devices and integrated systems across government departments to provide a seamless experience for customers and stakeholders. It also offers Residence Visa Stamping for eligible customers in partnership with the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs-Dubai.

Maisa Al Bustani, Director of the Medical Fitness Services Department at the DHA said: “Customers expressed their overall happiness and satisfaction with the state-of-the-art services provided by the smart centre. We are studying opportunities for opening more AI centres in the future.”

Four Robots man the services at Salem AI

The centre uses the AI Pod to measure vital functions (this includes blood pressure, height, weight, fever etc) and medical history using IoT technology, which in turn analyses the information and highlights the risk parameters for the physician. The results are then sent to the Salem system electronically.
