Unison’s approach is to utilize GE Healthcare’s advanced technology in equipment and resources to upgrade and invest in the radiology departments in all MOH public hospitals, moreover to include training the radiologists on utilizing the latest equipment.
On one hand, the Ministry of Health will work to outsource operations and management of the radiology services of 13 of its affiliated hospitals to Unison. GE Healthcare, on the other hand, will provide specialized solutions and technologies in their equipment. The partnership will help facilitate and accelerate access to quality medical services for patients. Furthermore, GE Healthcare and Unison will provide the latest CT (Computed Tomography) and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) equipment to provide innovative services and technologies that enable doctors to diagnose cases with greater accuracy and speed.
The radiology departments at the hospitals would be connected to a central hub built by Unison. With the Tele-Radiology Technology (i.e. the transmission of radiological patient images, such as x-rays, CTs, and MRIs, from one location to another for the purposes of sharing studies with other radiologists and physicians), the radiologists could share diagnostic images between hospitals, saving time and costs. Unison expects to minimize the waiting time for the patients and increase the number of patients being examined per day.
As a result, this would save the Ministry of Health the investment in equipment and on the long run will save time, costs and resources, especially when it comes to the reporting of exams, where not every hospital has a second radiologist to read and provide their second opinion for a patient’s case.

Factors for a Guaranteed Success
The Unison project, as a project, regardless of Unison as a project managing firm, introduced this unique partnership by bringing several distinct worlds together. The partnership with GE Healthcare and trusted expertise, combined with the capabilities and foresight of ADI, to meet with the United Arab Emirates Ministry of Health’s vision and scope, created a risk-free environment and a fertile ground for planting this medical-related seed of success.
This long-term project conveys an advantage characterized by the UAE’s strong existence, capabilities and promise of a brighter future for both nationals and expatriates. The UAE government has been climbing the glorious stairs of success day after day, where in the past years accessioned to its rightful prominent mark and status among the top nations worldwide.
All project risks are diminished and are negligible to account for. Technology risks are backed by GE, financial risks are minimal and backed by ADI and Unison’s stronghold, and the UAE public institutions possess all essential factors. Those factors are, but not limited to efficient education, flexible awareness, strong currency and all regulatory procedures.
Considering all of the above, the flow chart of success is met from inception and hopefully shall bloom brighter and brighter leading to further expansions, both vertically to include upgraded services and maintain inferior services such as standard X-Rays, and horizontally as well to penetrate cutting-edge health care specializations in operation rooms and emergency facilities.
