Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 29 January 2019, (AETOSWire): TruDoc 24x7, the MENA’s leading 24x7 Population Health Management Provider, participated at this year’s Arab Health, which took place at the Dubai World Trade Centre, from 28 - 31 January, to showcase their new 24x7 Population Health Management Solution including the 24x7 Virtual Clinic Booth, which allows patients to connect with full-time licensed doctors for reliable medical advice.
The current health care market has reached unmanageable levels, where unnecessary over utilization has led to perpetual increase of medical insurance premiums. In addition to the financial impact, there are serious potential clinical damages due to unnecessary clinical procedures and or medications.
“TruDoc 24x7’s aims to align consumers/employees and payers/employers by having full time doctors who are paid a salary with no incentives and who tell patients what they need not what they can afford through NHS International Guidelines” added Raouf Khalil, CEO & Founder of TruDoc24x7.
After realizing that, in healthcare, virtual services alone aren’t enough to change consumer behavior, TruDoc 24x7 transitioned from its previously recognized brand of Mobile Doctors 24-7, which was a basic telemedicine provider to a comprehensive 24x7 Population Health Management company. This new strategy and whole gamut of entry point solutions has allowed the company stratify its members and ensure they are directed to appropriate level of care as well as avoid unnecessary overutilization, thus achieving the appropriate balance between quality and cost, as it has been concluded that $40 billion of Arab world’s spending on healthcare is wasted.’
According to the American Medical Association ‘70% of non-life-threatening conditions could be resolved by speaking to a doctor over the phone. TruDoc’s 24x7 Population Health Management (PHM) Solution provides members with 24x7 access to comprehensive service solutions for healthy, acute or chronic conditions, whilst they are travelling via its mobile application, at the office through an on-site Virtual Clinic Booths, or at home via a Hospital at Home Program including 24x7 telemonitoring.
The company also provide Chronic Disease Management Programmes for conditions like Diabetes, Hypertension, Hyperlipidemia and Lower Back Pain to name a few along with second opinion service from medical consultants and experts recognized in their fields globally. The company’s PHM ensures the alignment of consumers/employees and payers/employers by informing patients the truth about what they need not what they can afford in accordance to international guidelines. TruDoc 24x7’s doctors are paid a flat salary with no incentives. This is truly a concierge service that actually saves money and ensures the right balance between quality and cost.
