As we all know, health of a nation is the wealth of a nation. Just as technology has transformed our everyday lives, it has played a pivotal role in transforming the diagnosis, treatment and especially management in the healthcare industry. Digitization has come bearing greater advantage for the doctors as well as patients.

One such leading digital healthcare company is Sihatech. It provides the first full-fledged smart app and website that specializes in documenting a patient’s thorough medical journey. It allows the patients to document their entire medical experience and medications as well as provides continuous controlled communication between the doctors and patients. Sihatech has combined the concepts of managing the medical journey and financing it. They provide first ever healthcare financing service to finance the non-insured medical treatments.

The History of Ideas and Developments

Initially started as a doctor-booking app, Sihatech soon realised that the journey of the patient is what matters and it is not given sufficient attention. Therefore, they have developed the idea of managing a patient’s journey and financial support into a complete concept. Guided by their vision of putting care back into healthcare, they developed an app focusing on the patient’s journey, documenting the patient’s data and brief history, post consultation, treatment, and medical knowledge. The app was designed to also provide the reminder of each medication’s time and type to the patient and allow interaction between the doctor and the patients for simple questions and appointment management.

Sihatech’s Role in Improving the Healthcare Industry

In the prevailing scenario of the digital healthcare management, numerous solutions are less interactive and some of them have limited the growth of some healthcare organizations. Amongst this, Sihatech’s services have radically changed the way of how the doctors and their patients view the healthcare sphere due to their non-intrusive interactive nature and provision of better understanding about the treatments to the patients.

They are confident that the world of digital healthcare will change dramatically once the government in the GCC will change their approach towards class.
