ClickMedix’s eHealth platform enables doctors across the world to serve more patients at lower costs, while empowering local health workers to learn from medical experts abroad.
ClickMedix is a mobile eHealth platform used by doctors to care for patients remotely, eliminating unnecessary suffering due to long waiting times for treatment or lack of access to experienced doctors. Community-based health professionals collect and transmit patient symptoms using point-of-care diagnostics devices and the ClickMedix app installed on their smartphones or tablets. Doctors then review the information submitted and provide treatment plans. The online system enables doctors to assist and treat up to ten times as many patients when compared with personal consultations, according to the company.
Community health professionals receive the recommended treatment plans through the ClickMedix software installed on their phones. According to ClickMedix, the platform has impacted the lives of more than 200,000 patients and enhanced the skills and impact of local health providers in North America, Latin America, Africa and Asia.
