The new developments enable patients with smartphones or tablets to log in and prepare for the medical examinations. The mobile device sends information about the examination, assists patient to get around in the hospital and also makes available the patient's medical data and records. It also enables them to access specific information related to the illness, medication and healthy lifestyle. The new development enables patients to access their personal data, medical history and actual medical examination data, enhancing the cooperation between patients and medical personnel. They get information about the waiting list, waiting time and all necessary locations in the hospital (pharmacy, individual buildings, toilets location etc.). Using the 24-hour medical call centre, they can also retrieve information about expected examinations and the disease in general. They receive up-to-date about medicines and potential side effects and also about creating a healthy lifestyle.
Similar attempts were already made elsewhere in the world, including systems supporting remote monitoring of chronic diseases, or smartphone applications assisting both patients and doctors.
