Digital Solution for Error-Free Communication and Collaboration in Healthcare

Even though the healthcare system in Switzerland is actually already so good evolved and so many diseases can be cured, nevertheless still so many errors happen… especially due to errors in communication and collaboration – and this could lead (in the worst case) to the death of patients. Komed Health aims to solve these problems and offers a digital solution that provides a simple and secure messaging service for the medical staff as well as an integration into the hospital information system and a patient-centered communication even across shift changes.

Listen in to this podcast episode to learn more about this innovative Digital Health solution from Luiza Dobre and her team and how it will make life easier for medical staff and perhaps even revolutionize healthcare. 

Faster information flow

“Using Komed Health we could rapidly transfer imaging findings from Radiology to the treating physicians and caregivers, to support their treatment decision process. On the other hand we can receive valuable information to improve the quality of our reports. All in all this may significantly save valuable time and reduce costs.”

Advances “i-care” delivery

“Komed Health gives physicians and nurses easy access and help to share medical information and to bring faster informed decision-making to the point of care. Komed is supporting the legacy infrastructure like pagers by creating command centers.”

Reduces interruptions

“Physicians are constantly interrupted. Each interruption results in an increased risk of a medical error and puts the life of the patient in danger. Compound this with the fact that most communication is actually not emergent. An asynchronous communication app like Komed Health can allow me to control how I manage my work and hence, reduce the number of interruptions."

Reinvents communication

"Komed Health provides a modern and secure way of communication. The platform allows to have the relevant information at your fingertips, to prioritise it and to respond in ways that don't disturb your workflow."

More time with patients

”Whilst treating a patient I need to interrupt the process of care to go physically to the computer and see whether there is any urgent information I shall be aware of. This makes my job very inefficient and frustrating at times. Komed Health can push actionable patient data to the smartphone the moment it becomes available."

Senior physician, Clinic Genolier
We definitely need an app!

Every doctor has a smart device nowadays. Having easy access to my patients' information and to relevant reports on the go would be invaluable. It's so difficult to get fast response. And sometimes events require urgency and there is no current solution for that.
