Using Abu Dhabi Healthcare Facility Design Standards in HFBS

04 May Using Abu Dhabi Healthcare Facility Design Standards in HFBS

DOH – The Department of Health Abu Dhabi, which regulates the health care sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, provides “Healthcare Facility Design Standards” for the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. These DOH Health Facility Guidelines or HAAD HFG’s are available for viewing online at: www.haad.ae/hfg.

Please Note: In 2018 HAAD changed its name to DOH – the Abu Dhabi Health Facility Guidelines as mentioned in this article still apply and continue to be available via HFBS. 

HFBS makes it easy to use the Abu Dhabi Health Facility Guidelines or “Healthcare Facility Design Standards” in a health facility project. The HFBS UAE Health Facility Guidelines project is compliant with the Abu Dhabi Healthcare Facility Design Standards. The drag and drop interface of the HFBS Briefing Module allows health facility designers to load the guidelines and quickly create a health facility brief that complies with the Health Facility Design Standards by dragging in standard components, rooms, or entire departments into the brief.

In this article we will look into how to access relevant health facility guidelines for creating a standards compliant health facility brief using the HFBS UAE Domain and the HFBS Briefing Module.
