iPLATO reveals its mobile services reach one million UK patients

IPLATO : 13 December, 2007  (New Product)
iPLATO Healthcare has revealed that coverage of the company’s Patient Care Messaging services has risen to more than a million GP patients.
Fuelling this growth has been the ground-breaking platform combined with the company’s service offering and expertise which allows its NHS partners to improve patient access and deliver powerful health promotion campaigns. With a continued focus on delivering improved health of patient and populations in partnership with primary care organisations iPLATO expects to be reaching 10 million patients within the next 24 months.

To accelerate the growth of the company’s service offering beyond text and voice messaging it has launched a mobile health portal framework targeted at access improvement, health promotion and support to people with long-term conditions. iPLATO’s NHS partners will start benefiting from the mobile portal framework and richer mobile health applications in the New Year.

Tobias Alpsten, managing director of iPLATO, said: “Reaching our first million patients is only a step on the way. There are more than three billion mobile handsets in the world today, each owned by a person for whom health is important, so there is a lot of room for growth. In addition to our in-house research and development efforts we actively seek partners with specific clinical skills to add to our overall service offering. We owe our healthcare provider partners and patients best-of-breed services. We expect many of these new, exiting, services to be delivered in partnership with universities, hospitals, clinical experts and other innovation companies across the world. We are especially interested in mobile applications that support people with long term conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma, depression and coronary heart disease.”
