If you have never been to Poland, now might be the time to travel there with peace of mind. UniversalDoctor Speaker for iPhone and iPad has just been upgraded to now offer 12 languages, with Polish being our newest addition. Polish is the 2nd most widely spoken Slavic language, after Russian and before Ukrainian.

Poland is one of the most linguistically homogenous European countries with nearly 97% of Poland’s citizens stating Polish as their mother language. Outside of Poland, there are roughly 20 million people of Polish ancestry living abroad, making the Polish diaspora one of the largest in the world. In England and Wales, there are over 500,000 people who consider Polish to be their main language. Other major Polish diasporas can be found in Germany, Ukraine, Belarus, Lithuania, France, Sweden, Ireland, the United States, Canada and Brazil… just to name a few!

As a patient who is traveling, or a healthcare professional who is often treating Polish people, UniversalDoctor Speaker can help facilitate medical visits between Polish and the 11 other languages in the application (English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Romanian, Portuguese, Catalan, Chinese, Japanese and Arabic).

Bring your Traveling Medical Record with you

Bring your Traveling Medical Record with you

We are travelling more and more all the time. Increasingly more people travel for business reasons, tourism, a short break, or a year’s sabbatical….and on all these trips there is one thing they never leave behind: their mobile phone.

Today our cell phone is our communication centre, our camera, our music equipment, our video camera. Now it can also be our particular medical assistant, our interpreter for health matters – even our medical records.

In a place that features a language you cannot speak, or in a country where your language is not known or hardly used, a health problem, the need to visit a doctor, or, in the worse case, a hospital admission, can be a serious, even critical, situation.

The language barrier can be a very important drawback in such a scenario.

That is why at UniversalDoctor we are continually improving our mobile applications. The UniversalDoctor Speaker for iPhone app is already proving highly useful to thousands and thousands of travelers and physicians around the world.

With UniversalDoctor on your iPhone you can explain many medical aspects in multiple languages. Wherever you go, if you require medical assistance or have to communicate with doctors, our application will help you take the first steps in a new health system.

You can also carry your medical records and treatment (prescriptions, etc.) with you in all the languages available on the application.

Choose the patient language and the health personnel language for problem-free communication. From now on you can travel with greater peace of mind.

Welcome to UniversalDoctor

Welcome to UniversalDoctor

The present socioeconomic reality tells us that we are in a globalized world at all levels. Increasingly often, immigrants and tourists require healthcare around the world and do not share the same language as the health personnel. Sometimes communication with patients who do not speak the same language as the healthcare professional is very difficult.

To respond to this requirement, the UniversalDoctor Speaker for PCs application is a multimedia, multilingual system that makes it possible to ask questions and provide answers in multiple medical situations using audio apps.

Where is UniversalDoctor Speaker Used?

Major hospitals and primary care centers in Barcelona, Madrid, Andalusia and other Spanish regions, as well as a number of hospitals in Scotland and Italy, have begun to use the program.

UniversalDoctor Speaker has also been available on iPhone and iPad for a number of months. These tools enable travelers and health professionals to communicate their symptoms, treatment or prescription in multiple languages anywhere, anytime.

UniversalDoctor Project has more:

At UniversalDoctor we want to highlight, promote and publicize all sorts of activities that contribute to communication. Our tools are a complement for professionals who find them highly necessary, i.e., interpreters and/or intercultural mediators. At UniversalDoctor you can find diverse manuals that can improve health professional/interpreter/mediator relations. Other materials and different activities as well as multiple collaborations and agreements with different hospitals, governments and health and communication associations comprise our present reality.

UniversalDoctor is also seeking to deliver on a difficult but achievable challenge, i.e., to publicize health in multiple languages, multiple training levels and multiple formats.
