Lulu Hamdan from Amana Healthcare is scheduled to speak at the event on how a patient can regain independence with maximum recovery through intensive rehabilitation, the role of technology and the significance of environmental and social elements for effective patient development.

Speaking to Lulu Hamdan, Healthcare Technology Specialist and Communications Manager at Amana Healthcare, she said “Each patient requires a unique medical approach for their condition. At Amana Healthcare, we turned this challenge to an opportunity by arranging for multi-disciplinary teams to work closely together to develop customized plans for each individual, helping them regain their independence with maximum recovery through intensive rehabilitation and/or customized programs for long-term care.”

Elaborating on how Amana Healthcare assists in enhancing patient experience for the medically complex patient, Ms. Hamdan said: “While each patient and their condition differ, the common approach across all patients is to provide them with a happy, medically safe, and comfortable environment where they can fully develop their potential despite the complexity of their underlying conditions”.

On the subject of how technology is playing a key role at Amana Healthcare, she explained how Amana’s rehabilitation hospital in Abu Dhabi is using robotic technology like the Rex Bionics device, a self-supporting and self-balancing exoskeleton that allows people with severe mobility impairments, and an eye-tracking device, Eye-gaze, which allows users to communicate and interact with the world by using proprietary eye-tracking technology.

Joining Ms. Hamdan to further emphasize on the importance of patient experience will be Ms. Maryam Khamis Zayed Al Ali, a long-term ventilator care patient at Amana Healthcare Abu Dhabi who will provide a first-hand account of her journey as a medically complex patient.
