DOCTENA has recently added home visits for blood tests to its online medical appointment offering. This new service provided by Picken Doheem is the fruit of several months of collaboration between the two Luxembourg based companies, who are joining forces to offer users this innovative service.
Picken Doheem, founded in 2017 by the private biomedical analysis laboratory BioneXt Lab lets users book a blood test free of charge at the time and address of their choice. It can handle 800 bookings of such blood test each month. “A blood test doesn’t need large amounts of medical equipment (a table and chair will do!) and generally doesn’t take more than 5 minutes,” explains Dr Jean-Luc Dourson, director of BioneXt Lab. “Our solution fits seamlessly into patients’ daily lives.”
The solution is completely in line with DOCTENA’s primary mission: to make it easier for patients to access healthcare services. This is home bookings have been developed together with Picken Doheem – BioneXt Lab. Users can ask for a blood test at the address of their choice without leaving the DOCTENA interface or their home. ”Patients like being able to book medical visits online. Offering home visits is the natural next step,” explains Patrick Kersten, CEO and founder of DOCTENA.
As for BioneXt Lab, it has added a new string to its bow by linking up its myLAB® interface with DOCTENA so that users can book their healthcare appointments on the DOCTENA system. According to Dr Jean-Luc Dourson, “Integrating DOCTENA into myLAB® adds real value for patients because they can now book an appointment with their doctor and arrange a blood test via the same app”.
