The online platform allows patients to consult their doctors, dentists, or midwives online, via audio or video devices. Doctors can then issue prescriptions and can also securely exchange medical documents and test results with their patients. The application is compatible with all popular operating systems and devices and can be accessed on smartphones, tablets, or laptops.
“Considering the highly contagious nature of the virus, we had to find a means to help reduce the risk of contamination, but still allow professionals to treat their patients while protecting themselves. This led us to decide to put eConsult in place,” explained Hervé Barge, the director of the eSanté Agency.
Available to all in Luxembourg
The service is available to all medical professionals, residents, and workers of Luxembourg.
Wagner Group which is active in ICT, real estate, and tech solutions is the main technical consultant of the project.
