Dubai Medical College and Lootah Health were privileged to host a talk and discussion by Dr. Thomas Aretz (Vice President at Partners HealthCare International, Associate Professor of Pathology at Harvard Medical School and Affiliate Pathologist at Massachusetts General
Hospital, Boston, MA, U.S.A), on Sunday 19th November 2017 at Raffles Hotel in Dubai. Dr. Tom Aretz shared his long experience with the various health care delivery models around the world and some of the major challenges of healthcare delivery. He also discussed the role of academic medical centers in health care delivery and showed global examples for different models and products.
We saw a great turnout from various key players and higher management role players from Academia, Hospital services (both private and government) as well as from Payers and insurances. Stakeholders took part in a very lively discussion and agreed that there should be more similar events in the future.
Dr. Dima Abdelmannan (Dean of Clinical Medicine – Dubai Medical College / Consultant Endocrinologist – Dubai Health Authority) hosted the event on behalf of Dubai Medical College and Lootah Health.
A very special thank you to Dr. Tom Aretz for taking the time to lead the talk and for Dr. Dima Abdelmannan for organizing the event and bringing key industry figures together. Some great post-event feedback was received, and we look forward to Dr. Tom coming back to visit us again soon.
