Mobile doctors, a healthcare provider that runs a 24-7 physician helpline, is demonstrating the potential of its service in partnership with Cisco.
Mobile Doctors uses a high-definition mobile telemedicine system to enhance access to quality healthcare in the Middle East and North Africa, reducing the need for non-emergency cases to visit clinics and expanding the reach of healthcare services.
Mobile Doctors demonstrated at GITEX how it is successfully deploying Cisco TelePresence technology to deliver round-the-clock medical expertise to customers in the MENA region.
Mobile Doctors is able to offer high quality care, to any location, without the need for an appointment. The service allows everyone – whether in their workplace, their community or at a local clinic - to have immediate ‘real-life’ virtual ‘in-person’ access to a local, licenced doctor at any time, 365 days a year without the need to make an appointment or wait in an emergency room queue.
Mobile Doctors services are provided at a cost that is a fraction of a traditional clinic or hospital visit, making them highly cost effective for patients, employers, payers and government.
Adam Chilcote, Vice President, Strategy and Business Development, Mobile Doctors, says: “Healthcare is not simply a concern for hospitals – every family, organization and government has healthcare needs and challenges. Everyone and everything in healthcare is connected. By delivering new options for high-quality, always-available care, we can meet the every-day needs of families, help employers reduce health insurance premiums, deliver new business models for health services providers and enable governments to deliver equitable, timely care to the populations they look after. Cisco understands the integrated nature of innovation, technology, healthcare and business.
“We are proud to have Cisco as our partner as we develop new and highly innovative models of care from within the MENA region, designed specifically for the MENA region.”
