Telemedicine is medical advice provided remotely. The doctor and patient do not meet in person, but are connected with each other via telephone, the internet or a video link. The Medgate doctor makes a diagnosis or suspected diagnosis by asking specific questions and listening to the replies, before determining the treatment required together with the patient. Almost 50 percent of all cases do not need further treatment or a doctor’s visit after a Medgate consultation.
As an ÖKK client, you can be at ease around the clock. Whether you develop physical problems in the middle of the night, you have a general medical question or you are unsure about whether you need to see a doctor, Medgate will provide you with advice, recommendations and medical help day and night.
This is how it works:
Would you like to consult a doctor, but your health problem is not acute? The WebDoctor at Medgate allows you to electronically forward your medical history to Medgate day and night. A Medgate doctor will then contact you within 24 hours.
