Hein van Eck, Chief Strategy Officer at Mediclinic Middle East, said: “Mediclinic Middle East has always been committed to providing the highest standard of healthcare to its patients, and this level of service should begin right at the start of our patients’ healthcare journey with us. With MYMEDICLINIC 24x7, patients literally have access to healthcare at their fingertips. They can select their doctor, book, reschedule or cancel their appointments and even conduct consultations by video, all within a few clicks on their mobile device or computer. We are very excited to introduce MYMEDICLINIC 24x7 to the UAE public and are confident that it will provide the flexibility, immediacy and convenience that our patients expect and deserve.”

Fodhil Benturquia, CEO and Founder of Okadoc, added: “We are pleased to partner with Mediclinic, one of the region’s largest premium healthcare providers, providing them a fully integrated platform, streamlining patient’s booking processes, increasing customer satisfaction while also reducing cost and maximising revenues and profitability. Okadoc’s technology ensures a fully embedded scalable multi-channel platform across mobile and web, reducing the prevailing issue in the healthcare industry, appointment no shows. To date, Okadoc has reduced the number of no shows for partner health providers by 75% and has seen a shift of up to 30% of appointments booked from call centres move to online over the span of a year. This partnership is another significant milestone in our ongoing relationship, supporting Mediclinic’s path towards digital transformation.”

Ali Abi Raad, Country Manager for the Middle East and India at InterSystems said “We are pleased to provide a leading healthcare group such as Mediclinic with a holistic solution, through integrating our TrakCare unified Electronic Medical Record with Okadoc’s advanced telemedicine platform. The full integration between Okadoc and InterSystems TrakCare provides Mediclinic with advanced telehealth technology that gives patients direct access to their doctors and healthcare services and ensures that patients are getting the care they need remotely in a safe manner.”
