The seventh International Best Practice Competition was won by Seha's Covid-19 Drive-Through Screening Centres initiative, which was managed by Ambulatory Health Services. 68 projects from nine countries competed in the competition, which was organized by Business Performance Improvement Resource and the Centre for Organizational Excellence Research in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi International Centre for Organizational Excellence, Abu Dhabi Chamber, and the Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Award. All projects in the competition were evaluated against four criteria: level of deployment, innovation, results achieved; and whether the project was adapted by other organisations or benchmarked against other similar practices.

Three further projects related to Seha's pandemic-fighting efforts were named among the top best practices. AHS Chief Executive Officer Mohamed Hawas Al Sadid said: “Thanks to our position on the forefront, our successful model continues to be replicated across the UAE, the region, and internationally, as we continuously strive to share our best practices with our healthcare partners.”

Dr Marwan Al Kaabi, acting group chief operations officer, said: “Seha’s Covid-19 drive-through screening centers played a central role in the UAE’s fight against the pandemic, with the approach of regular and mass testing shaping our successful strategy and contributing to Abu Dhabi’s recent recognition as the leading city worldwide in its response to the pandemic.We were able to significantly increase testing capacity in record time to quickly identify those who contracted the virus, test those who had come into contact with them, and limit the spread of Covid-19.”

The International Best Practice Competition's Best Practice Certification Scheme awarded Seha's Covid-19 Prime Assessment Centers and Covid-19 Vaccination Drive-Through projects a seven-star grade, the highest possible. The AHS Recovery project, which focused on AHS's effort to ensure safety for non-Covid-19 patients seeking consultation for ongoing medical requirements throughout the pandemic, was also given a five-star rating.
