Althalia has developed and received approval from the public authorities for its on-line HD video doctor consultation service to expand the interaction and support capacities for patients benefiting from Althalia’s medical services. This offer allows Althalia’s members to see a Board-Certified Physician from Althalia’s medical team or from a medical team belonging to its network of specialists and hospitals at any time and to get medical advice from anywhere in the world (excluding medical emergencies). This service is now available on computers and tablets through an SAAS responsive connection, and the mobile application (IOS and Android) will be available to Althalia members as of September 1, 2017.
“We consider all telemedicine services, including video physician visits, as an important complementary tool that can improve patient–healthcare provider interactions. Physical interaction is extremely important in the care process and can not be replaced by any digital service. On the other hand, in some cases, being able to access a physician through the internet, whether a general practitioner or specialist, can improve patient experience and the quality of medical interactions in a significant way.”
Massimo di Cicilia, CEO of Althalia
