Convenient, quality healthcare at the touch of a button
In an unpredictable landscape it has never been so important to access quality health care that is accessible and convenient. Thanks to a partnership between ProCare and Southern Cross Health Insurance, an app has been designed to provide quick and easy access to GP services for patients who need urgent advice. With telehealth becoming an additional service to district health boards and health providers, many online tools and apps are becoming available in the New Zealand market to ensure patients continue to receive high quality care, wherever they are located.
