du has introduced its M-Health platform, CarePassport at a recent industry event.
The M-Health platform empowers patients to have control over their medical records by allowing them to aggregate, store, share, and manage all their medical data, including radiology images, lab results, dental, vitals and medications.
CarePassport integrates with facilities’ scheduling, clinical results, and medical imaging to help healthcare providers better engage their patients and improve patient satisfaction. It empowers patients to take an active role in their own healthcare through a comprehensive and intuitive mobile application that incorporates the same secure and convenient technology used in travel and banking apps.
With a complete view of their medical data available across multiple providers, CarePassport enables users to engage more proactively and meaningfully with their healthcare providers.
CarePassport app provides beyond medical data;
- The app is able to find nearby hospitals and clinics based on a patient’s location, it can be used to request, manage, and remind patients of their medical appointments.
- It integrates with different HIS/EMR/PACS systems, Fitbit, Nokia and HealthKit platforms to sync with wearable devices, and it enables easy and secure communication with caregivers with the ability to exchange medical records, images, and data.
- For medical facilities, CarePassport’s scheduling module helps reduce no-shows and last-minute cancellations by reminding patients of their appointments and keeping them engaged.
In 2016, du announced a pilot programme to facilitate the secure transmission of electronic health records (EHRs) in the UAE through a blockchain-based solution in partnership with the Global Blockchain Council.
