The Hamburg-based connected-health.eu GmbH has launched the desktop version of its Life Time app following a presentation to 350 guests from the medical and health sector as well as reporters, a press release said Thursday (June 22,2017). The pioneering Life Time desktop for the digital transfer of medical records comes with new functions and just a year after the start-up’s launch.
Exchanging data on smartphones – no internet needed
Transferring patients’ medical records swiftly and precisely can be crucial to treatment. Until now, neither the patient nor their supervising doctor had direct access to a patient’s medical records as most data are still transferred on paper and on CDs. Dr. Johannes Jacubeit, a former surgeon, founder and CEO of connected-health.eu is well aware of such problems. His work focuses on how to make the health sector go digital and become more efficient – and the solution for transferring medical records safely and simply lies in smart phones and without the internet, he believes. Jacubeit noted: “It is high time for the medical sector to go digital. Our new generation of Life Time is going in the right direction.”
Life Time Desktop follows a year after launch
The new Life Time Desktop will be available from June 2017 and facilitates the exchange of digital documents regardless of time and location. Medical practices and health centres can cut the costs of printing and posting letters and documents. Patients can access medical records on their mobile phone app instead of having to go to medical practices to collect documents.
Life Time first launched on the market with a two-component solution in May 2016. A local, coded connection allows medical records to be sent straight from the Life Time Hub in the medical practice to the Life Time app on the patient’s smartphone. The patient can arrange the documents in the app and make them accessible to a supervising doctor.
