VANCOUVER, March 30, 2017 /CNW/ - Canadian telehealth company GOeVisit, has launched their new app complementing their existing online medical platform that provides virtual access to visits with Canadian doctors, for minor illnesses, any time, anywhere.
GOeVisit is using the same technology people are already using daily, turning a computer, smartphone or tablet into a private, face-to-face medical visit. Now, they just made it easier with the launch of their free mobile app.
GOeVisit can diagnose, treat and prescribe for more than 50 minor illnesses ranging from coughs, colds and flu, to general medical concerns, minor injuries and pediatric care. There is no fee to enroll or to use the service.
"GOeVisit is about providing convenience. If you look at how we live today, how we work today, technology plays a huge role,'' says Liz Bryant, chief operating officer at GOeVisit. "We do our banking online. We do our shopping online. We do our investing online. People wanted an option to waiting in walk-in clinics and waiting in emergency rooms when they have situations that they know are not serious.''
Bryant says a digital disruption is taking place in health care. Virtual consultations are not new. Around the world, they are set to explode and in North America they are predicted to increase by 800 per cent by 2020. "If you haven't had a virtual medical consult yet, in five years you will. It will be the go-to,'' she says.
"Almost half of Canadians believe that mobile apps will make their healthcare more convenient. Seventy five per cent of Canadians who were polled said that they would not only use virtual health care but that there definitely should be an app for that. So we listened to that.''
