Closer to the Patient

The current healthcare system in Slovakia, like other systems abroad, faces major challenges. We have still better diagnostic and treatment options, but we lack the time and capacity to provide them to every patient who needs them.

Without fundamental changes in the organisation and form of healthcare delivery, we will not be able to sustain a system that both prolongs and improves life.

That is why we want to improve the prognosis of patients in Slovakia and we want to improve their quality of life. We want to help healthcare professionals do their jobs well, in a way that fulfills them. And we also want to help our country build a modern healthcare system.

Behind your journey to modern and efficient healthcare is a team of experienced physicians and pioneers in the field of telemedicine. Telemedicine as a concept encompasses many areas – but the essence is the use of modern technology and the delivery of healthcare remotely. Typical areas are video and audio consultations, prescription refills, home monitoring of physiological functions, remote consultations by specialists, real-time sharing of diagnostic data. Simply, telemedicine makes it possible to get quality healthcare right from the comfort of home.
