PureHealth has launched Dawak, an online digital pharmacy platform. The platform aims to simplify the way patients access, purchase and consume their medication throughout the UAE. The application is currently available to patients of the Abu Dhabi Health Services (SEHA), a PureHealth subsidiary, responsible for hospitals and clinics across Abu Dhabi, and will be rolled out to the general public at a later stage.The new platform helps users avoid waiting times, review and refill their medicines, select a convenient place and time for delivery and allow ease of payment via the platform. Dawak aims to ensure medication adherence and is a platform to report adverse medication effects. Dawak organises and delivers the medication into packs, which are individually sealed sachets, organised by date and time, and include the dosage details.The Dawak application is designed to be user-friendly and can further assist the customer with alerts to remind them to reorder or take their medication, share details of the correct dosage, and the scheduling of one-to-one calls with pharmacists to access further information. For healthcare providers, the Dawak pharmacist portal allows the tracking of orders requested by patients, shows the prescription details and selected delivery times, and can also raise insurance requests.Her Excellency Dr Noura Al Ghaithi, Undersecretary of the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH), said: "The Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH) is proud to witness the launch of innovative solutions aimed at enhancing patient experience and healthcare outcomes.
