Emirates Health Services (EHS) has earned four International Standardisation Organisation (ISO) certificates, reaffirming its status as a leader in health services and its commitment to enhancing the health services provided by its hospitals and healthcare centres.
EHS received the ISO certifications for Innovation Management, Knowledge Management, Management System for Educational Institutions, and finally Guidance for Managing Competencies and People Development, adding to its track record of achievements.
Competing against regional and global entities, EHS was able to meet all requirements and standards for ISO 2019: 56002 Innovation Management. This standard provides a common framework to drive innovation, evaluate EHS’ current innovation performance, and ensure business continuity.
Dr. Abdulaziz Al Zarooni, Acting Executive Director of the Financial Sector and Support Services at Emirates Health Services, said that this deserved achievement confirms EHS’ commitment to international standards of innovation management, reflecting its commitment to investing in advanced technologies and implementing international best practices in order to promote innovation and continuously upskill human resources.
"These achievements are a result of EHS’ integrated strategy, which is in line with the UAE’s National Wellbeing Strategy 2031, National Strategy for Advanced Innovation 2071, and the UAE Centennial 2071,"
"They are in keeping with the directives of the UAE’s wise leadership to strengthen the health services system and establish a healthy environment that enhances quality of life for all customers."
Dr. Kulthum Al Balushi, Chief Innovation Officer and Director of the Training and Development Centre, asserted that earning the certificates adds to the Centre’s track record of achievements, reaffirming its leading position and commitment to constantly updating its strategies and formulating future visions for its health services.

It supports the growth and development of knowledge capital, contributes to the exchange of specialised experiences, and establishes databases of knowledge experts in the EHS, both internally and externally.
The EHS also earned the ISO 21001:2018 for Management of Educational Institutions that provides educational products and services to help meet the needs of learners more effectively, achieving better academic results, and allowing facilities to meet requirements and expectations of learners and stakeholders in education.
