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.

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

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

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?
