Re-structuring performance

MUVI’s Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for AAH focus on ensuring the provision of integrated high quality and patient-centered services. The strategy may be described as follows:

  1. Promote regionally-unique and/or core services
  2. Re-engineer and improve high-throughput and tertiary care areas, and increase the complexity of the case mix
  3. Enhance integration of care pathways for better patient outcomes and higher operational efficiency

Regionally-unique and/or core services include:

  • Family medicine, with 3 dedicated Family Medicine Centers that focus on primary care and specialty services
  • Accident and emergency referral center for Al Ain
  • Infectious disease, with a fully-equipped specialty clinic
  • Inpatient psychiatry and psychology ward, a service that is the only one of its kind in the country

Re-engineered and improved high-throughput and tertiary care areas include:

  • Surgery, with the gut renovation of the existing surgical suite to include 7 state-of-the-art operating theaters. The construction of an additional 2 operating theaters is underway. Clinical program expansion is planned, i.e., implementation of a retinal surgery program.
  • Endoscopy, with the introduction of a comprehensive range of diagnostic and interventional endoscopic techniques (including balloon enteroscopy) and the capacity to perform CT-guide procedures. The endoscopy program will be enhanced.
  • Critical care, with the full renovation of the 14-cubicle intensive care unit and capacity to support pediatric ICU and special infection control needs.
  • Imaging, with the addition of the fastest dual scanner CT machine in the region.
  • Maternal health, with a new 6-room labor and delivery suite. L&D OT utilization is an ongoing project.
