E-health, or how to manage your health by phone?

Published

Booking and cancelling appointments, synching appointments with your calendar on your smartphone. Ordering prescriptions for chronic medications. Viewing test results and referrals. Easy contact with your personal physician and the ability to find the appropriate solution to your medical problem. All this and much more is possible with the Medicover mobile application developed for patients in collaboration with the technology company LookSoft.

The right approach to telemedicine solutions should provide patients with holistic and comprehensive medical care. The reliability of medical advice provided remotely requires knowledge of the patient and access to his tests and treatment records.

At Medicover, telemedicine services have been evolving for over 10 years, and the mobile application is an additional modern solution for patients.

Our application enables you to manage your and your family's health. The patient can schedule and cancel appointments, send a message to their personal physician, view their test results or order a prescription. Thanks to this ongoing contact, patients can receive help for any health problem, whether they are in the country or abroad.

In the age of smartphones and digitisation, in a world where mobility is part of every aspect of life, mobile applications are also becoming standard for healthcare providers. It is a good channel for communicating with patients - especially those who live far from the facility, or those whose health condition makes it difficult to come in for an appointment. The latest application update, available to users beginning 16 May 2017, includes the Touch ID feature.

With Touch ID, there is no need to enter a password each time you want to use the application. This is not only very convenient for the user but also increases the safety of patient information. This is especially important if, for example, your phone falls into the wrong hands

The application also allows you to save patient card numbers – it is a great convenience for parents, so they can more easily manage their children's accounts. Medicover’s technology partner is LookSoft.

Smartphones are handy everywhere, including in the contact with your doctor. What seemed impossible only a few years ago has now become a reality. We are proud that we have created an application that helps hundreds of thousands of Poles in such an important area of their life as their health. We are hoping that LookSoft and Medicover will continue to work together to create further conveniences for patients.

Łukasz Makowski, CEO of LookSoft Sp. z o.o.

The Medicover app is available for download in mobile stores, including the App Store, Google Play, Windows Store, and BlackBerry World for iOS, Android, Windows 10 and BlackBerry OS 10, respectively.

Accidents at work. The first 10 minutes are crucial.

ago

By the end of September 2017, more than 56,100 persons were injured as a consequence of accidents at work. According to the data of the Central Statistical Office, the most accident-prone sectors included industrial processing, trade, transport, storage, and construction. Due to their inability to work, employees collectively spent more than 1.8 million days on sick leaves – this is more than 33 days per one injured person. In many situations, the consequences of the accident could have been much less serious if appropriate aid was provided immediately. Human health and lives frequently depend on whether employees (or witnesses of an accident) are able to react properly and provide first aid.
More than half of Poles are treated at private dental offices

The Polish dental market, following the example of the European market, is in the process of consolidation. Small offices are increasingly joining large networks. This is taking place to meet the expectations of patients who value quality services, convenience, trust in doctors, and modern office equipment. In Poland, this market has been dominated by private entities that can afford expensive investments (as public spending on dentistry makes up only 2.5 percent of the entire National Health Fund budget). Over half of Polish patients are treated by private entities.

More and more small and medium companies are investing in medical care for employees

ago

According to the latest Eurostat data, Poland is in the top five countries of the European Union with the lowest unemployment rate. Although on one hand these statistics are a cause for joy, they also pose a big challenge for many employers, who are having a harder time finding good employees these days. In order to be competitive on the market, you have to offer attractive non-financial benefits. At the top of the candidates' list of expectations is private medical care – as many as 14 percent of them declare it important. And although it is already a standard in corporations, it is still a big challenge for small and micro-enterprises, in which only 6 percent of employees are covered by private medical care. Why is it worth investing in it?
