Desde la publicación:

LAS APPS COMO MOTOR DE INNOVACIÓN EN SALUD

“El mercado de la mHealth está en constante crecimiento y genera un interés cada vez mayor por parte de los diferentes agentes vinculados al ámbito de la salud, así como de la sociedad en general. En los últimos años se han presentado numerosas publicaciones sobre la realidad de este sector, algunas de las cuales reflejamos en este trabajo. Este informe no pretende competir con las mismas, sino hacer una llamada de atención sobre la situación de la salud móvil en el mercado hispanohablante, aportando una selección de las apps en español que destacan por su calidad, utilidad médica y contribución a la mejora de la salud, cuya información se ha recogido hasta el mes de enero de 2014. Pretendemos por lo tanto lanzar un primer instrumento que sirva como espacio de reflexión y acercamiento, con la intención de que quede abierto al diálogo y a la participación futura de un mayor número de agentes y profesionales de la salud.”

Summer Travels: Seeking Medical Care in Foreign Countries


wordcloud_treatmentScreen Shot 2013-08-06 at 10.41.08 AM

Summertime is here (along with the heat wave!) and that means vacations are starting for many. This also means it’s peak tourist season as many of us will be traveling to different places around the globe, hoping to find that particularly special escape from our daily lives. So what will it be this year – are you off to a hot or cold destination?

No matter the destination (or the weather), there is one thing every traveller thinks about, especially if they’re traveling with their family to foreign destinations – safety. Do you have the tools and information you need to travel safely and securely? One important aspect of safety is our health. Research has shown that roughly half of overseas travelers develop medical problems during their journey. What would happen if you or a loved one got sick? What if you had to seek medical care in a foreign country?

A multilingual healthcare communication solution in your pocket

Our team here at UniversalDoctor thinks about this constantly, always looking at how we can use our core strengths to help you stay in good health, even abroad. That’s why we developed a mobile application that uses the technology of our multilingual software system for Hospitals.

It’s called:  UniversalDoctor Speaker: Medical Translator with Audio

UD portal button

What does it do?

Well, it’s the most comprehensive mobile medical translator app –  with thousands of sentences and native audios in 13 languages to facilitate medical visits in over 120 countries. That’s over 60% of the world’s countries! It covers every step of medical visits, whether you’re in a hospital or primary care clinic, starting from accurately explaining your symptoms to understanding your diagnosis and treatment. How do we do this? By providing translations from both the patient side and the doctor side that are organized in a way to facilitate multilingual communication between you and a doctor.

That’s not all, the app also features:

  • SEARCH – a search function helping you find the phrase you need in an emergency,
  • TRANSLATE YOUR HEALTH – the capacity to translate your medical conditions, allergies and prescriptions,
  • OFFLINE MODE – the app works entirely offline so you don’t need any connection or data plan to use the app.

And best of all, it doesn’t add any weight to your suitcase as it operates directly from your mobile device (iPhone or iPad… Android version coming soon!).

Now you may have noticed that we said 13 languages earlier, but there are 12 currently in the app… that’s because we’re just about to launch a NEW language that has been in very high demand by our users and will come in very handy during the upcoming vacation season!

Keep your eye on this blog to find out which new language we’re adding very soon…
