Medcare and Cisco unveil telehealth platform
Medcare Hospitals & Medical Centres, in collaboration with Cisco, rolling out its telehealth technology that will give patients access to value-added videoconferencing health services on their laptops and mobile phones so they can receive the quality healthcare they need from anywhere.
Medcare and Cisco have worked to combine health technology and the convenience of telemedicine. Designed to empower patients to take control of their health, telehealth literally puts it in the hands of the people. From video medical consultations to booking appointments and speaking directly with a number of specialist doctors to recommended care pathways, this platform delivers healthcare outside of traditional clinical facilities whilst also ensuring improved quality and better value healthcare and delivery across the UAE.
Medcare has identified best in class primary care doctors with years of private care experience to be part of the platform, and all doctors are fully qualified to diagnose a patient’s condition, recommend treatment plans, provide second opinions on previous diagnoses and give advice on prescription and non-prescription medications. If, in the instance that specialist treatment is required, the telehealth doctors are equipped and ready to recommend and refer patients to the appropriate specialists and facilities. All doctors have received additional clinic and platform training to ensure they are fully ready to conduct the new patient consultation process.
Videoconferencing through the telehealth platform is extremely easy. Simply visit www.medcare.ae, click on the home banner for “live consultation with a doctor”, register with a call agent and talk to your doctor immediately.
