Mediclinic Middle East has launched its coordinated telemedicine service across all its units in the UAE to provide assistance to patients during the COVID-19 crisis, and provide them with a seamless healthcare experience even under restricted conditions.
Here in Abu Dhabi and neighbouring Al Ain, Mediclinic patients can now make use of pre-booked video consultations with a specific doctor or specialty. Physical consultations, where necessary, are also available.
In a coordinated service such as this, telemedicine consultations are the recommended first point of care, supported by a new pharmacy home delivery service for both acute and chronic medications, however physical consultations are available at both Mediclinic hospitals and outpatient clinics if required.
To increase patient choice, a number of Mediclinic’s hospital-based specialists are now also available at some of the outpatient clinics.
All patients requiring a physical consultation can be assured that Mediclinic’s number one priority is their safety and that the strictest infection control protocols are adhered to at all times.
The telemedicine service is currently covered for only Thiqa and Basic Plan patients in Abu Dhabi. Other insurance coverage will follow shortly and in the interim the service is available on a self-pay basis for such patients.
