Mexico: Mobile technology – a solution for patient care
Due to the increasing penetration of smartphones and tablets among the population of the country, the health industry has found in mobile technology a solution for care and monitoring.
Mexico, Brazil and Argentina currently account for 67% of mobiles apps focused on providing health care options. And to improve the application of information technologies in health, access could be given to 15.5 million additional patients per year in Mexico.
The saturation of the public health system in Mexico has forced the private sector to innovate the techniques of care for patients who have a high possibility of being incapacitated.
The company Group Sohin launched the Concierge app, currently used by more than 4,000 patients, which functions as a digital complement that provides personalized attention to patients with complex chronic-degenerative diseases.
With this application, the company assigns a person who supports the patient to complete the administrative procedures and accompanies him in their treatments, in addition allows him to share his mood to receive emotional support in his recovery.
