Remote Medical Center

Remote Medical Center makes it possible to offer medical services remotely. The solution does not replace traditional healthcare, but is complementary to it, offering an extended range of services without the need for employing additional medical staff. The implementation of cost-effective telemedicine solutions improves work efficiency, which allows more patients to be handled at the same time. Owing to the application of telecommunication tools that offer continuous health monitoring, as well as prophylactic and control tests at home, Remote Medical Center improves the efficiency of treatment and provides patients with a greater sense of safety by assuring permanent contact with qualified medical staff. Apart from quick and secure access to electronic medical documentation, doctors can offer tele-consultations to patients, and can consult other specialists, at any time and place, leading to savings in terms of time and money. Thus, the services offered supplement treatment perfectly, particularly in the case of patients who require the continuous supervision of a specialist doctor or long-term care.
