Health at Hand, one of the Middle East’s most advanced telehealth providers, has launched its services with NEXtCARE. In a bid to improve access to care for NEXtCARE members, Health at Hand has developed a software solution (SDK) to provide members access to a doctor through video consultation from anywhere in the world with no co-pay. Those using the service in Dubai will also be able to get their prescription medicine delivered to them within 60 minutes or have lab test requests issued through the app. Members can now take advantage of this service through the new and improved MyNEXtCARE app, or Portal.
“NEXtCARE is expanding its focus to incorporate e-health to provide service excellence through digital and data-driven technology, systems and tools, as well as cost-efficient online solutions that help create a new way of working and speeding up the traditional processes. NEXtCARE sustains a customer-oriented approach, keeping the e-health experience a core focus to better serve partners, members, and providers through a seamless digital healthcare journey at every touchpoint,” the company said in a statement.
Chairman of the Executive Committee, CEO of Allianz Partners MEA & NEXtCARE, Global Head of TPA & MPM, Christian Gregorowicz, commented, “With the growing demand from customers to have a more convenient, technology-led solution, we are thrilled to integrate this interactive touchpoint solution within our MyNEXtCARE app. This will for sure enhance the patient experience and support the continuum of care.”
Health at Hand’s Founder and CEO, Charlie Barlow added, “Health at Hand is proud to be partnering with NEXtCARE and to be delivering on HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s 50 Year Charter, which at the heart of it promises a ‘doctor for every citizen’. Our award-winning technology, coupled with NEXtCARE’s regional experience and patient-centric approach is sure to be a winning combination.”
The MyNEXtCARE app is available to download from the Google Play and App Store.
SS8 Networks has annoucned that it exhibitor and speaker at ISS World Middle East to be held March 9-11, 2020 at the JW Marriott in Dubai, UAE.
2020 has been described as the pivotal year for 5G, as more and more telcos deploy the new technology on multiple environments. SS8 has gained significant knowledge regarding how 5G will impact Lawful Intelligence platforms as a result of their recent field deployments and customer trials. While at ISS World MEA, SS8 plans to share some of that knowledge with Law Enforcement, Public Safety, Government and Intelligence Agencies.
On Monday March 9, SS8 will present “Real World Interpretation of 5G LI Requirements and Implications for Carriers and LEAs With 5G”. A session designed to discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with processing 100 times more data per target and the new level of requirements needed for Lawful Intercept solutions.
Additionally, on Wednesday March 11, SS8 will Present “Changing Needs for LEAs with 5G, Location and Encryption”. 5G will change the way we secure location-based data, as the traditional identifiers such as IMSI and IMEI will be replaced, complicating the 4G and 5G interoperability. SS8 will discuss this and other changes needed for LI platforms to successfully perform in 5G networks.
“We are excited to be at ISS again and appreciate the opportunity to discuss the technology requirements needed for Lawful Intelligence implementation for 5G environments,” said Dr. Keith Bhatia, Chief Operating Officer. “At SS8 it is our mission to provide the most advanced Lawful Intercept, Intelligence and Monitoring Center platforms today, to assure a safer tomorrow. The ISS event helps us attain that mission.”
