AXA Gulf has teamed up with AbbVie, a research-based biopharmaceutical company and Bayti Home Healthcare, a provider of home health care and nursing care, to launch a patient support program in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
AXA customers who are suffering from Immune Mediated Inflammatory Disease (i.e. Arthritis) have now access to a specific support program. It has been designed to offer a set of services that helps the patients better manage their treatment and their recovery period and includes free consultation, education and delivery of prescribed medicines.
The AXA Gulf's "Patient Support Program" is aligned with many of the country's health priorities such as the management of chronic diseases or the enhancing patient adherence.
Nearly 20% of the UAE population suffers from Arthritis and the patients' condition can get worse if not detected early. Education on early symptoms and management of the condition are hence key elements of the new patient support program.
Customers are also automatically registered to this program with Bayti which will give them more information on the diseases. Next step, AXA Gulf plans to launch more patient support program to cover different kind of diseases.
