This prestigious accolade acknowledges Dr. Zaher's unparalleled commitment, extensive contributions, and pioneering work in healthcare and clinical research. His relentless dedication to innovation and progress will not only benefit AHI and its partners but will also make an indelible progression for healthcare across the region.

Dr. Zaher's outstanding achievements stem from his leadership at Carexso and IntelliGen, where he and his team continually push the boundaries of what's possible in the realm of value-based healthcare and clinical research. The acknowledgment from Forbes Middle East serves as an affirmation of the groundbreaking work carried out by Dr. Zaher and his team. Their combined efforts are instrumental in ushering in a new era of healthcare solutions, setting new standards of excellence, and paving the way for a healthier future. AHI is proud to have Dr. Zaher and his team forge the way for AHI and its technology across the Middle East.

Advanced Health Intelligence Ltd has entered into a collaboration agreement with IntelliGen FZ-LLC, led by Dr. Zaher, a renowned expert with a significant background in healthcare. This partnership aims to deploy AHI's innovative technology to address healthcare challenges, particularly related to chronic diseases in the region, including countries like Saudi Arabia. Dr. Zaher's extensive experience, including roles as the Director of College of Medicine Research Centers, Assistant Professorship in Regenerative medicine and Stem cells, consulting on the Saudi 2020 National Biotechnology and Infectious Disease plan, and contributions to clinical trials and COVID-19 vaccine research in the UAE, makes him a key figure in this collaborative effort.

Through this collaboration, both entities strive to combine AHI's globally unique technology with IntelliGen's profound understanding of the region's healthcare needs. The goal is to shift the prevailing healthcare paradigm from a reactive model, which primarily addresses issues once they manifest, to a proactive approach. This proactive model emphasises early identification and timely intervention, particularly for chronic diseases that have been steadily on the rise in the Middle East.

Furthermore, IntelliGen, under the leadership of Dr. Zaher, is also closely involved in the development and execution of various strategies for Saudi's 2030 vision. With this vision in mind, the collaboration between AHI and IntelliGen aims not only to introduce digitised healthcare but also to ensure early intervention in the Middle East.
