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.

Sonia Kondratowicz, Customer Service Director at Medicover

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

Sonia Kondratowicz, Customer Service Director at Medicover

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.

Healthy baby - the challenge of modern times

ago

In 2016, over 382,000 births were recorded in Poland [1]. Research shows that two thirds of parents feed their children the wrong diet and expand their children’s diet too quickly [2]. The knowledge on how to take proper care of infants is still insufficient, which increases the risk of disease in later years. That is why regular medical check-ups for a newborn baby are so important to ensure that his health and development are constantly assessed. Constant paediatric care also enables parents to deepen their knowledge about the best ways to take care of their child's health.
