DHA app to ease you through pregnancy.

Summary: Tisli to guide pregnant woman step by step through the pregnancy providing her with all the information about the soon to be newborn.

Pregnancy-induced brain fog - often referred to as baby brain - commonly describes a woman's forgetfulness during pregnancy. But the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has now brought out a mobile application that can do all the thinking for you.

From rescheduling appointments to providing you with gentle reminders about check-ups, Tisli - which translates to 'My Child' in Arabic - will become every pregnant woman's new best friend during her 40-week pregnancy term.

Available to both registered DHA patients and guest users, Tisli will guide you step by step through your pregnancy providing you with all the information you need to know about your soon to be newborn. It was launched alongside two other brand new DHA apps on the opening day of GITEX 2015, including 'Hayati', for diabetic patients and 'Tashkees' which provides medical information and articles about diagnosis awareness.

Available in both Arabic and English, DHA Director, Amani Al Jasmi, told Khaleej Times that mobile apps like these are the "smart choice" when it comes to information platforms, hence why it is increasing such on-the-spot, user-friendly services.

"In this new generation, mobile apps are so popular so why not build on that. Give people the convenience they want."

Before launching Tisli, 'Hayati' and 'Tashkees', Al Jasmi said the DHA held several focus groups with each of the app's target audience to ensure it provided a 360 degree service for the people that matter.

"Hearing what people need and want is what makes an app successful. That way we can listen to them and imbed their ideas into the app. That doesn't mean the job is done though. We will always update such apps as technology is always expanding and needs are too."

Tashkees is already up and running on Android and the first phase of Tisli and Hayati will be launching on November 5 and Novemebr 15 respectively.

With the UAE ranked 16th worldwide for Type 2 diabetes, 37 million in the Mena region are classed as diabetic. In 2014 alone, more than

803,000 people were diagnosed with the disease in the UAE. As a result, 'Hayati' will no doubt be popular among users. The app will create a personal dashboard for diabetics after gathering their personal information during the registration process. - kelly@khaleejtimes.com
