A new innovative mobile healthcare app, MyMedicNow, has been launched in the UAE to help bridge gap between patients and doctors. It also helps patients search for medical conditions and find related local healthcare providers.
The launch is timely as UAE’s mobile health industry is positioned for a robust growth, said the founders and developers of MyMedicNow.
The Global Mobile Health (mHealth) Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 33.8 per cent over the next decade to reach $181.52 billion by 2025, according to a report by Research-2Guidance Annual mHealth – 2016.
MyMedicNow takes a unique approach of connecting patients with the right doctors by allowing patients to search by symptoms or medical conditions. The new app aims to help patients search for medical conditions and find related local healthcare providers quickly and efficiently. The app is currently available on iOS, Android and via a web portal.
“From life-saving medications to cutting-edge treatments, the healthcare industry thrives on constant innovation. However, the biggest recent breakthrough in healthcare is the smart phone and its apps,” Dhaval Desai, CEO of MyMedicNow, said.
“They say there’s an app for everything, but the best ones are the apps that will get you out of a bind when emergency strikes. MyMedicNow is abound with convenient solutions that not only help improve people’s lives, but also helps make informed choices easier and faster while ensuring doctors and hospitals are better connected to patients,” he said.
It has been noted that two-thirds of the world’s population has a mobile connection, and thanks to the growing mobile health (mHealth) industry – a blanket term for the apps, services and devices found at the intersection of medicine and mobile technology – people are using their phones to manage their health in ever more innovative ways. The report also said that almost 100,000 health-related apps have been added by 13,000 new publishers to the market since 2015. At that moment, there had already been 259,000 medical apps in major app stores.
