Medicover launches a new website

Medicover launches a new website

Published

The new www.medicover.pl website is a modern platform offering reliable and comprehensive health-related information as well as interactive tools for the users, such as online medical history and BMI calculator. Medicover also decided to implement a doctor review system that will help patients choose the right specialist. The website was launched on 14 February 2018.

The new medicover.pl website is part of e-health services that the company has been developing for over ten years. The site was created in response to the needs of patients who are increasingly searching for health-related information online. According to the Gemius/PBI study, health-related websites receive nearly 130 million page views per month.

The health-related information that we can find online is not always reliable, it is often incomplete, confusing for the patient, and above all, it is not verified by experts. On our website, patients can find reliable health-related articles and answers to their questions. The knowledge base, created by experts in the field of medicine, is constantly expanding and each article is checked to ensure the information it contains is current.

The new website will offer users access to over 600 publications, divided into two modules - a health encyclopaedia and a medicine lexicon. The encyclopaedia contains detailed, professional descriptions of the most common diseases and ailments, including causes, diagnostics, symptoms, treatment, prognosis, potential complications and recommended actions. All this in an accessible form, which includes videos and infographics. In the lexicon, patients will find descriptions of medicines available on the Polish market, along with their dosage and use.

The website will also offer users interactive tools - online medical history, BMI calculator, fertility days calculator, pregnancy calendar and baby blood type calculator. These are solutions that often allow a preliminary assessment of a health problem and assist in obtaining effective help, for example directing a patient to the right specialist. Some of the interesting features include blood glucose and blood pressure journals, which store the measurement results that can be printed and brought with you to your doctor's appointment.

The website has a modern doctor search engine, which in a quick and intuitive way will allow patients to find Medicover doctors throughout Poland and make it easier to book an appointment. In addition to basic information about the doctor (name, photo, work location, specialisation, experience, languages, education, certificates, publications), a star rating was also introduced.

The star rating is a system of reviews published on the basis of questionnaires provided by patients. This is a global trend, and such solutions can be seen on the websites of the largest and most prestigious companies offering private medical care. To ensure credibility, we take into account the ratings from the last 12 months and only from patients who have actually been seen by the doctor.

Rafał Janas, Senior Project Manager at Medicover Poland, responsible for the website implementation project.

The site is fully responsive. It includes modern graphics and a clear content layout. The website is available at www.medicover.pl.

Epidemiologists stress that in recent years we have been observing the return of infectious diseases, which for years have been considered to be under control or eradicated. One of them is pertussis, and its incidence has also been on the rise in Poland. This is confirmed by the data of the National Institute of Hygiene – in 2016, there were as many as 6,856 cases of the disease, while in 2017 there were slightly fewer – 3,034 [1]. Most vulnerable to the disease are young people between the ages of 10 and 14, adults and the elderly. According to experts, the most effective preventive measure continue to be vaccinations – mandatory for children, but also those recommended for adults who should take a booster dose every 10 years.
