E-Health Institute: virtual doctor’s office for general medicine

The e-Health Institute is the first virtual doctor’s office for general medicine in Italy with registered office in Florence. It is a facility that offers prevention services, advice and remote therapies for a wide spectrum of health problems, through chat and video calling, as well as in our medical offices.
In response to the growing demand from areas with poor medical care, our objective is to offer via telemedicine a supra-regional medical service that reaches these areas through the internet.
Telemedicine is able to solve a large part of everyday health problems, while for more complex diseases we can help the patient by informing and addressing it; it can be applied as an independent remote treatment, follow-up, monitoring of outpatient therapies and as a monitoring of chronic diseases.
Thanks to telemedicine, outpatient visits and collaborations with diagnostic institutes and specialists, the e-Health Institute guarantees 360-degree care for its patients, wherever they are!

E-Health Institute App: doctor’s platform

The e-Health Institute App is a platform designed for the medical videoconsultation and chat for patients and physicians in conformity with the european telemedicine guidelines and the international privacy legislation. The patient’s platform allows the patient to send a chat request, connect with a physician available online or make an appointment. The doctor’s platform allows the physician to respond to the chat requests, accept incoming calls from patients, call patients from the virtual waiting room or manage their personal appointment book. During the videocall, it is possible to exchange documents and images between physician and patient. A videoconference with multiple participants, more doctors and patients and their relatives and partners, is also possible. Integrated into the platform is a real-time translation of the chat messages and spoken words, facilitating the treatment of international patients. The doctor’s platform is available to all physicians who want to complement their practice with a telemedicine service: follow up, monitoring, second opinion. It allows the physician to look after his patients from a home office. The patient is able to reach his doctor from anywhere, e.g. from vacations. The app is suitable for all operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac) and works on PC, tablet and smartphone.
