An electronic inspection system that will determine on-the-spot violations during routine health inspections has been launched by the Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

According to a senior official, the new system will also immediately verify if doctors employed by the facility are licensed, which in the process saves considerable time.

From January to September this year, the authority has carried out 3,156 visits, during which time inspectors have issued 196 violations including 150 fines for individuals and health facilities, 44 warnings to health facilities and the temporary closure of two facilities.

“E-inspections ensure on-the-spot notification of violations so that prompt action is taken against any irregularities,” said Dr Ramadan Ibrahim, Director of the DHA Health Regulation Department.

“Henceforth, inspectors will use hand-held devices and all information provided by the individual and the healthcare facility will be verified online during the time of inspection.”

He added that healthcare facilities and individuals will get immediate electronic notification of the violation, which could range from issuing warnings, fines and temporary or permanent closure of the facility, depending on the severity of the violation.

The new system, which has been built in-house by the DHA IT department, helps save time, ensures on-the-spot documentation of the violation and helps accelerate the pace of reporting violations.
