Dubitat, your doctor on your mobile
New technologies are contributing multiple benefits to every aspect of our daily lives. And naturally, that includes our health. Our smart phones already feature applications designed to help us keep a check on the exercise we take, monitor our vital signs, control our health or eat sensibly. But the time has now come to take things a step further. This is the philosophy behind Dubitat, the first application that offers virtual consultations with our doctor via our mobile phone. What’s more, it is available for both Android and iOS.
As we mentioned, Dubitat is a cutting-edge application for mobiles that keeps patients in contact with their doctors, cutting out the need for travel, waiting times or availability issues. A concept that meets a major demand by users who need to keep in touch with their doctors but do not have the time to visit the surgery.
Downloading Dubitat is completely free of charge and the application is extremely simple to use. Consultations are made from our terminal via photos, videos and text or voice messages between the doctor and patient. There are no charges for using this service; all you have to pay is the fee for each consultation made.
The platform is available in Spain through two different applications: Dubitat Médicos (designed for health professionals) and Dubitat Pacientes (for the patients). According to Vanessa Asenjo, one of Dubitat’s founding partners and developers, although it currently has around 500 users, the goal is to increase that figure to more than 5,000 by the end of 2016 and 60,000 next year. The company is currently negotiating with major hospital administration groups for the integration of Dubitat onto their platforms, and intends to consolidate the project in the short term before embarking on an international expansion strategy.
