Conference Series LLC Conferences takes immense pleasure to extend our warm welcome to invite all the participants from all over the world to attend Annual Congress and Medicare Expo on Primary HealthCare, April 25-27, 2016 in Dubai, UAE which includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions.

Primary Healthcare 2016 is a forum to explore issues of mutual concern as well as exchange knowledge, share evidence and ideas, and generate solutions. The main focus of primary health care was the diagnosis and treatment of patients, disease prevention and screening.

Track 1: Primary Healthcare

Primary Healthcare is the essential health care that is predicated on scientifically sound and universally acceptable methods and technology, which make health care accessible to individuals and families in a community. Selective Primary Health Care (SPHC) emphasized the cost-effectiveness of vertical programs with measurable results.  In addition, an important part of selective primary health care was the creation of political will for funding opportunities. Some global health analysts argue that comprehensive primary health care was an experiment that failed; others contend that it was never truly tested. Comprehensive primary health care (CPHC) is a framework conceived as a global strategy to reduce inequities in health between and within nations and emphasising community action.

Comprehensive primary health care helps in identification and response to social factors which mainly influence health which in turn impact on the key determinants of health. Comprehensive Primary Health care is an approach to health care that highlights social justice, equity, community control and social change.  Integration of PHC services continues to be seen as a pivotal strategy towards the achievement of the national goals of transformation of health services, and the attainment of a comprehensive and seamless public health system. The ecumenical mobile health revenue is expected to reach about US$ 23 billion across all stakeholders – mobile operators, contrivance vendors, healthcare providers and content/application players - by 2017. Driven by population magnification and aging, the total number of office visits to primary care medicos is projected to increment from 462 million in 2008 to 565 million in 2025. The ultimate goal of primary health care is better health for all. WHO has identified five key elements to achieving that goal is Reducing exclusion and social disparities in health (universal coverage reforms) Organizing health services around people's needs and expectations (service delivery reforms).Integrating health into all sectors (public policy reforms) Pursuing collaborative models of policy dialogue (leadership reforms) and Increasing stakeholder participation.

Track 2:  Primary Care Services

Primary Care nurses have professional, legal and ethical responsibilities which require demonstration of a satisfactory knowledge base, accountability for practice, functioning in accordance with legislation affecting nursing and health care, and the protection of individual and group rights. Primary care Services include  health promotion, illness prevention, midwifery, antenatal and postnatal care, treatment and care of sick people, rehabilitation and palliation, community development, population and Nursing public health, education and research, policy development and advocacy. Primary care services are provided by professionals—usually general practitioners and nurses - in the community. These healthcare professionals are often the first point of contact with patients, who can then be referred to medical specialists and hospitals for further checks and treatment. The World Health Organization attributes the provision of essential primary care as an integral component of an inclusive primary health care strategy. Primary care involves the widest scope of health care, including all ages of patients, patients of all socioeconomic and geographic origins, patients seeking to maintain optimal health, and patients with all manner of acute and chronic physical, mental and social health issues, including multiple chronic diseases. Primary care is the day-to-day health care given by a health care provider. Typically this provider acts as the first contact and principal point of continuing care for patients within a health care system, and coordinates other specialist care that the patient may need. The Primary Care Physicians industry has a low level of capital intensity; as healthcare is a labour-intensive sector, and much of that labour is highly skilled and highly paid. In 2015, for every dollar spent on wages, industry operators will spend $0.04 in capital investment. Over the past five years, capital intensity has remained relatively unchanged; in 2010, for every dollar spent on wages, industry operators also spent about $0.04 in capital investment.

Track 3: Primary Healthcare Management

Primary Healthcare Management is a profession that includes leadership and management of public health systems. Health care systems management defines the leadership and general management of hospitals and Primary care systems. There are two types of administrators, generalists and specialists. Generalists are responsible for managing entire facilities. Specialists are responsible for particular department such as finance, accounting, budgeting, and human resources. The District Health System is recognised as the most appropriate vehicle for the delivery of primary health care. Health promotion is an important aspect of primary health care and contributes to a population-based health approach. To attract patients and improve population health management, health systems are expanding primary care networks by adding non-traditional access points such as retail clinics, onsite clinics, e-visits, and hybrid clinic sites. Practitioners are encouraged to embrace innovation within their practice to further escalate the treatment process and improve patient outcomes. Electronic modes of communication, education and training are now commonplace in Innovative primary care.

Primary care clinic management education complements traditional patient education in supporting patients to live the best possible quality life with building resistance to their chronic condition. Traditional patient education in contrast offers information and technical skills, self-management education teaches problem-solving skills. Finally the central concept in self-management is self-efficacy—confidence to carry out behaviour in order to reach a desired goal. Primary care clinic management is enhanced program to make patients succeed in solving patient-identified problems. Health care estimated in$3.09 trillion in 2014, and are projected to soar to $3.57 trillion in 2017. The healthcare market in the U.S. in 2014.in this involved the major groups of hospital care ($959.9 billion), physician and clinical facilities ($618.5 billion), dental services ($122.4 billion) and prescription medicines ($290.7 billion), along with nursing home and home health care ($248.5 billion).

Track 4:  Primary Care Medicine

Primary medicines are those that satisfy the primary health care needs of the population. They are selected with due regard to public health relevance, evidence on efficacy and safety, and comparative cost-effectiveness. Primary Care Nursing is a system of nursing care delivery which emphasizes continuity of care and responsibility acceptance by having one registered nurse (RN), often teamed with a licensed practical nurse (LPN) and/or nursing assistant (NA), who together provide complete care for a group of patients throughout their stay in a hospital unit or department. Primary health care nurses adopt the definition of health in the Declaration of Alma-Ata that health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Primary health care nurses have professional, legal and ethical responsibilities which require demonstration of a satisfactory knowledge base, accountability for practice, functioning in accordance with legislation affecting nursing and health care, and the protection of individual and group rights. The highly skilled cardiologist Surgeons of Primary Health offer a comprehensive approach to cardiovascular care, including an array of treatments for coronary artery disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, angina and all other conditions related to the heart and vascular system. Physical Therapy Specialists provide primary health care expertise in health promotion, prevention and screening, triaging, and treating various conditions. Primary care providers play an important role in caring for cancer and Metastasis. Capital Intensity in the Nursing Care Facilities industry is low. The industry requires relatively high amounts of labour input and only moderate levels of capital input. For every $1.00 spent on labour, only $0.06 is spent on capital equipment. This figure has remained relatively unchanged over the past five years. Total labour costs represent about 41.9% of industry revenue. Significant levels of personal and nursing care are provided to patients.

Track 5:  Quality in Primary Care

Engaging primary care practices in quality improvement (QI) activities is essential to achieving the triple aim of improving the health of the population, enhancing patient experiences and outcomes, and reducing the per capita cost of care, and to improving provider experience. Primary care practices with a strong QI orientation continually seek to improve their own performance and the outcomes of their patients. Primary care is the cornerstone of health care that is effective and efficient and meets the needs of patients, families, and communities. To ensure these efforts are successful, there is a need to build and sustain the ability of primary care practices to engage in QI activities in a continuous and effective way. Practitioners are encouraged to embrace innovation within their practice to further escalate the treatment process and improve patient outcomes. Electronic modes of communication, education and training are now commonplace in Innovative primary care. The primary care optometry combines diagnosis and managing of eye diseases. The increased cases of chronic diseases like diabetes are the parallel cause for vision problems. Psychological issues during primary care visits are consulted by primary care psychology person. However, few patients will follow through with behavioural health issues for diagnosis. Integrating psychology and mental health professionals into primary care has emerged as an improved access to potential use of mental health services. The Regional primary care deals with higher ratio of medical specialists to population, the higher the spending in geographical areas because the more people see specialists rather than primary care physicians. Higher spending areas prevent illness and quality care. Hence equity and systematic potential difference is one of the key factors in regional primary care and thus thrive globally for improved health and for more equitable distributions.

Track 6:  Family Medicine and Primary Care 

Family medicine  is a therapeutic forte committed to extensive social insurance for individuals of all ages; the specialist is named a family doctor, family specialist, or once in the past family professional. It is a division of primary healthcare that gives proceeding with and thorough medicinal services for the individual and family over all ages, genders, Migrant Health Infectious diseases, and parts of the body. It is in knowledge of the patient in the connection of the family and the group, emphasizing disease prevention and wellbeing advancement. As indicated by the World Organization of Family Doctors, the point of family medication is to give individual, comprehensive, and proceeding with look after the person in the connection of the family and the community. The issues of qualities underlying this practice are normally known as primary care ethics. Of the primary care specialties (family pharmaceutical, general inside medication, and paediatrics), family doctors give the most care, overseeing about one-fourth of all primary care visits including Cancer ResearchCardiology diseases , Dental Healthcare, Diabetes and Obesity, Skin Healthcare, Hiv-AIDS Healthcare. Given the scope of family medicine, this comes as no surprise. At the center of the process element is the patient-physician relationship with the patient viewed in the connection of the family.  It is the degree to which this relationship is esteemed, created, supported, and kept up that recognizes family prescription from every single other specialties.

Family physicians coordinate the natural, clinical, and behavioural sciences to give proceeding with and comprehensive health care. Unlike paediatricians, who just give consideration to kids, and internists, who just give consideration to grown-ups, family medication incorporates all ages, genders, every organ framework, and every disease entity. Family doctors likewise give careful consideration to their patients' within the context of family and the group. While there are similarities between family prescriptions and the other primary care specialties, family healthcare have an uncommon chance to have an effect on the well-being of an individual patient over that individual's entire lifetime. Respondents with a primary care physician, rather than a specialist, as a personal physician were more likely to be women, white, live in rural areas, report less therapeutic determinations and higher health perceptions and have lower annual healthcare expenditures (mean: $2029 vs $3100) and lower mortality (hazard ratio = 0.76, 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.64-0.90). After adjustment for demographics, health insurance status, reported diagnoses, health perceptions, and smoking status, respondents reporting using a primary care physician compared with those using a specialist had 33% lower annual adjusted health care expenditures and lower adjusted mortality (hazard ratio = 0.81; 95% CI, 0.66-0.98).

Track 7:  Primary Home Care

Primary Home Care is a medically related personal care service prescribed by a physician as part of a client’s plan of care. Primary Home Care is available to eligible Medicaid clients whose health problems cause them to be functionally limited in performing activities of daily living. Each client’s services are provided by a Primary Home Care attendant. Primary Home Care assists the client with: Housekeeping, Laundry, Meal Preparation, Grocery Shopping, Personal health Care, and Escort to Physician’s office. Primary Home Care provides the best care for your loved ones, giving them the necessary care, attention and assistance to live at home peacefully and comfortably. Primary Home Care (PHC) provides non-technical, non-skilled, in-home attendant services to people who have an approved medical need for assistance with personal care tasks. PHC is available to eligible people whose health problems cause them to be functionally limited in performing activities of daily living according to a practitioner's statement of medical need. Attendants provide PHC services. The main focus of primary health care was the diagnosis and treatment of patients. When people presented with a medical problem, it was targeted for appropriate course of action for treatment or management. Significant increase in lifestyle and cultural change, early identification of risk factors and prevention initiatives are now a part of everyday practice.

Track 8: Primary care Epidemiology

Primary care epidemiology can contribute to wider improvements in health and healthcare services, through better understanding of disease aetiology, use of healthcare services and the role of different healthcare interventions. Primary care is delivered by a wide range of health professionals, nurses, doctors, care assistants, mental health specialists, dieticians, pharmacists, dentists, optometrists and other health care professionals. Emerging Infectious Diseases are a continuing danger everyone. Some diseases have been effectively controlled with the help of modern technology. Yet new diseases—such as SARS and West Nile virus infection—are constantly appearing. Others, such as malaria, tuberculosis, and bacterial pneumonias, are now appearing in forms that are resistant to drug treatments. Age-related physiological impairment and disease are known to be subject to environmental influences, and there is increasing evidence that they have a significant genetic component. The cardiovascular epigenetics has seen extraordinary progress over the last few decades, with animal models suggesting key roles for a limited number of metabolic pathways. This attention on the natural and social determinants of wellbeing has gone with a fast change in rates of urban populaces over the world. The fast urbanization of the 20th century reflects changes in worldwide political, monetary, and social powers. Thus, the health of urban populations has changed as cities have evolved. As more people worldwide live in cities, it is imperative to understand how urban living affects population health.

Track 9Family Care

Family Care is a comprehensive and flexible long-term care service system, which strives to foster people's independence and quality of life, while recognizing the need for interdependence and support. Family medicine (FM), formerly Family Practice (FP), is a medical specialty devoted to comprehensive health care for people of all ages, i.e family health,the specialist is named a family physician, family doctor, or formerly family practitioner.WHO has estimated that if all the vaccines now available against childhood diseases were widely adopted, and if other countries could raise vaccine coverage to a global average of 90%, by 2015 an additional two million deaths a year could be prevented among children under five years old. This would have a noteworthy effect on meeting the worldwide objective to decrease youngster deaths by 66% between 1990 and 2015.

Track 10: Dental Primary Care

Dental care is the Oral hygiene, the practice of keeping the mouth and teeth clean in order to dental disorders. Family physicians commonly encounter patients with dental infections, such as dental caries and periodontal disease. Dental caries is caused by bacteria that destroy the enamel and dentin; it can be detected by an oral examination that shows stained pits or fissures on the tooth surface. Use of fluoride is the most effective prevention measure for dental plaque. Untreated caries may progress to pulpitis and, eventually, to necrosis of the pulp. In irreversible pulpitis, the tooth dies and the patient may have a localized abscess that can spread to surrounding tissue. Family physicians are in a good position to address this morbidity. They can recognize common dental infections and, in some circumstances, may initiate treatment of serious infections before referral. Family physicians can also advise patients on how to prevent dental infections and provide proper dental medicine.

Track 11Primary Care Pediatrics

Paediatrics deals with the medical care of infants, children, and adolescents, and the age limit usually ranges from birth up to 18 years of age. A medical specialist who practices in this area is known as a paediatrician. The word paediatrics mean "healer of children"; they derive from two Greek words. Paediatricians work both in hospitals, particularly those working in its specialized subfields such as neonatology, and as primary care physicians who specialize in children. In medical contexts, new-born refers to an infant in the first 28 days after birth; the term applies to premature infants, post mature infants, and full term infants. Before birth, the term foetus is used. Breastfeeding is the recommended method of feeding by all major infant health organizations. Paediatric genetic disorders result in Turner Syndrome, Prader-Willi Syndrome, and Angelman Syndrome. Neonatology is a subspecialty of paediatrics that consists of the medical care of new-born infants, especially the ill or premature newborn infant. The principal patients of neonatologists are new-born infants who are ill or requiring special medical care (Pediatric Mental Health Assessment) due to prematurity, low birth weight, intrauterine growth retardation, congenital malformations, sepsis, and pulmonary hyperplasia or birth asphyxias. Pregnant women are advised to pay attention to the foods they eat during pregnancy, such as soft cheese and certain fish, in order to reduce the risk of exposure to substances or bacteria that may be harmful to the Child health. This can include food pathogens and toxic food components, alcohol, and dietary supplements such as vitamin A and potentially harmful pathogens such as listeria, toxoplasmosis, and salmonella.

Dietary vitamin A is obtained in two forms which contain the preformed vitamin (retinol), that can be found in some animal products such as liver and fish liver oils, and as a vitamin A precursor in the form of carotene, which can be found in many fruits and vegetables. Intake of large amounts or, conversely, a nutritional deficiency, of retinol has been linked to birth defects and abnormalities. Major causes of childhood mortality have occurred in many low middle income class (LMICs), including 106 countries with accelerated declines in childhood mortality from 1990 to 2011; 80% of this decline was due to reductions in death from infectious causes. A large, and growing, proportion of global childhood mortality is therefore due to non-communicable disease. Indeed, 6.0% and 18.6% of deaths among children ages 5 to 14 years in lower- and upper-middle-income countries (MICs), respectively, are due to cancer. As is already the case in high-income countries (HICs), cancer represents the leading cause of non-accidental death among children in a growing number of MICs.

Track 12: Community Primary Care

Community-Oriented Primary Care (COPC) is a systematic process for identifying and addressing the health problems of a defined population. It can be implemented with the resources available in most communities. In COPC, a team of health professionals and community member’s work in partnership over a long period, diagnosing and treating a community in much the same way as does a primary care physician with an individual patient. Primary care practitioners are not required in every project, and they are usually too busy to lead such an effort, but they must be involved. Family medicine, with its emphasis on comprehensive care of patients, embraces the concept of care of the community. The basic concepts of COPC were initially implemented in South Africa during the early 1940's by Sidney and Emily Kark with the creation of community health centres. These centres promoted a reorientation of health services at the community level through a unique linkage between individual clinical care and public health.

Track 13: Primary Health Insurance

Primary Health insurance is insurance against the risk of incurring medical expenses among individuals. By estimating the overall risk of health care and health system expenses, among a targeted group, an insurer can develop a routine finance structure, such as a monthly premium or payroll tax, to ensure that money is available to pay for the health care benefits specified in the insurance agreement. The benefit is administered by a central organization such as a government agency, private business, or not-for-profit entity. Health insurance can either reimburse the insured for expenses incurred from illness or injury or any health issues or pay the care provider directly that provides the health policy. Health insurance is often included in employer benefit packages as a means of enticing quality employees.

Why Dubai?

Dubai is a city in the United Arab Emirates, located within the emirate. The emirate of Dubai is located on the southeast coast of the Persian Gulf and is one of the seven emirates that make up the country. It has the largest population in the UAE (2,106,177) and the second-largest land territory by area (4,114 km2) after Abu Dhabi. Is one of the few cities in the world that has undergone such a rapid transformation - from a humble beginning as a pearl-diving center - to one of the fastest growing cities on Earth. Dubai today is a tourism, trade and logistics hub and has earned itself the reputation of being the ‘gateway between the east and the west.’ It is also considered as the dynamic nucleus of the Arabian Gulf region.

Home to just over 2 million people from more than 200 nationalities, Dubai is one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Living in Dubai has a lot to offer. It is safe, politically stable, centrally located, and has a good education system and healthcare facilities, modern infrastructure and much more. The sun shines almost every day, the shopping and leisure facilities are impressive, and the salaries are tax-free. Living in Dubai is exciting, something new and different happens every so often. Just when you think you’ve seen it all, a new project is announced, whether it is the launch of a sports stadium, a mega commercial tower, a residential enclave or yet another shopping mall. Dubai is constantly on the move, striving for greater heights and more facilities and comfort for its residents and visitors.

Dubai is without a doubt a destination of the 21st century. Read any article about the fastest growing city in the region  and it’s almost guaranteed you’ll see the words ‘ambitious’, ‘record-breaking’ and ‘staggering’. This meteoric growth has not gone unnoticed, and each year thousands of expats arrive to claim a slice of the action.

 

Members Associated with Primary Healthcare:

Important pressures are the integration of Community Care and Primary Care or in other words the connection between Public Health and care for the individual. The difficulty for local authorities is to adapt their care system to the increased needs of the individuals living within their neighborhoods. These needs have not only increased in volume but also in complexity. An adequate monitoring system for these local authorities, providing insight of the needs in terms of prevention and health  promotion, reactive care including emergencies, continuity of care, dealing with chronically ill mainly in the context of home care is crucial and creating equitable financing which take into account the differences between affluent and other parts within the city are needed. Local governments need information, assistance and capacity building on how to achieve practical solutions for these major challenges which lay ahead and will become more visible in the coming decades. The Community Oriented & Integrated Primary Care approach is a model that fits very well to tackle most of the challenges. Moreover, addressing health problems requires an intersectoral approach at the local level, integrating health and welfare sectors with housing, work, education, and infrastructure.

Target Audience:

Leading world Doctors, Registered nurses, Professors, Directors, Dieticians, Research fellows and many more from leading universities, companies and medical research institutions, hospitals sharing their novel researches in the arena of Healthcare & Medicine.

Market value, Growth &Source of Funds

A growing market segment is demanding unscheduled access to primary healthcare services without consideration of health system or pre-existing clinician relationship. This population segment has given rise to a new set of "on demand" primary healthcare delivery channels. These on demand delivery channels have strong growth projections (ranging from 6.5 to 34 percent annually) over the next several years creating an opportunity or threat for the traditional primary care providers and the health systems.

As per estimates, the healthcare market is projected to grow at 12.0% p.a. to US$ 69.4 billion by 2018 from an estimated US$ 39.4 billion in 2013. Outpatient and inpatient markets are expected to account for 79% and 21%, respectively, of the overall market size. Saudi Arabia is projected to remain the largest GCC market. Qatar and UAE are expected to be the fastest growing markets; going forward. The demand for number of hospital beds is expected to be 115,544 in 2018, an addition of 11,241 beds from 2013, which is in line with the expected supply looking at the number of projects in the pipeline.

 

The IMF estimates that the region‘s population would cross the 50 million mark by 2020, providing impetus to the consumption of healthcare services. Rising income levels and sedentary lifestyles have led to a higher prevalence of obesity and diabetes leading to a demand for specialized healthcare services. GCC population in the age group of 65 and above is expected to surge from 1.2 million in 2015 to 14.2 million in 2050, driving demand for healthcare services. Also, infant mortality in the GCC improved from 110 per 10,000 live births in 2000 to 78 in 2012.

While growth in the region‘s insurance premium outpaces the growth in the global market, the insurance penetration remains one of the lowest in the world.

Pysicians working on Primary Healthcare
