Redefining the UAE Healthcare industry 

Dr. Haidar Al Yousuf, Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Health, is one of the most prominent figures in the healthcare industry in the UAE.  

He has been instrumental in restructuring the role of the health financing model of the Emirate from designing the relationship between payers, providers and the public, and setting up market operational and clinical guidelines and quality indicators. 

He is well-known for his implementation of the Health Insurance System of Dubai (ISAHD), which has set a global benchmark, and the mandatory Health Insurance Law for Dubai, that has led to a historic milestone: achieving total healthcare coverage for the entire population of the UAE in just three years 

 Al-Futtaim Health: Developing a whole new healthcare ecosystem 

 As the Managing Director of Al-Futtaim Health, Dr. Haidar has created a whole new ecosystem along the healthcare journey, with a simple aim: to make people happier and deliver services in the smartest and most cost-effective ways.  

 He has redefined the entire healthcare system where every ‘physical’ service and touchpoint along the chain is seamlessly integrated with the ‘digital’ component, to deliver smart solutions that ensure maximum satisfaction among patients.  

 As a unique healthcare offering, Al-Futtaim Health has developed an ecosystem built on a unique business model of balance, where top quality service and the best treatment is made accessible to all. This is in line with the brand’s central belief that everyone is entitled to good healthcare.  

 It’s an ecosystem that effectively optimizes resources and cost-efficiencies to create a constant win-win platform: one in which patients, medical staff, insurance companies and insurance providers, can benefit together.  

As a leading healthcare brand, Al-Futtaim Health has already established itself as a robust organization that has supported the UAE during the pandemic while efficiently sustaining its regular operations.  

Its’ most recent unique recognition from Accreditation Canada International for HealthHub Clinics, its chain of clinics in the UAE, is proof alone of this fact.
