MyMedicNow is another significant innovation in modern healthcare in the UAE.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, September 28 2017:  The Global Mobile Health (mHealth) Market is poised to grow at a CAGR of around 33.8 per cent over the next decade to reach approximately $181.52 billion by 2025 according to a report by Research2Guidance Annual mHealth – 2016. UAE's mobile health industry is positioned for a robust growth, as suggested by the founders and developers of MyMedicNow, an innovative mobile app which supports the transformation of UAE into a smart country and is inline with the UAE National Innovation Strategy, launched by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform the UAE into one of the most innovative countries in the world.

MyMedicNow takes a unique approach of connecting patients with the right doctors by allowing patients to search by symptoms or medical conditions. The NEW app aims to help patients search for medical conditions and find related local healthcare providers; quickly and efficiently The app is currently available on iOS, Android and via a web portal.

“From life-saving medications to cutting-edge treatments, the healthcare industry thrives on constant innovation. However, the biggest recent breakthrough in healthcare is the smart phone and its apps. They say there's an app for everything, but the best ones are the apps that'll get you out of a bind when emergency strikes. MyMedicNow is abound with convenient solutions that not only help improve people's lives, but also helps make informed choices easier and faster while ensuring doctors and hospitals are better connected to patients,” said Dhaval Desai, CEO of MyMedicNow. 

It has been noted that two-thirds of the world's population has a mobile connection, and thanks to the growing mobile health (mHealth) industry — a blanket term for the apps, services and devices found at the intersection of medicine and mobile technology —people are using their phones to manage their health in ever more innovative ways.The same report by Research2Guidance Annual mHealth - 2016 stated that almost 100,000 health-related apps have been added by 13,000 new publishers to the market since 2015. At that moment, there had already been 259,000 medical apps in major app stores.

“Smartphones are easily accessible, and this has transformed not just the mobile industry, but also the healthcare sector.However, when people hear about health apps, the general assumption is fitness tracker. In reality, there are more healthcare consulting apps to help patients and users with easy information. MyMedicNow is one such app which ensures quick access of information with a user-friendly interface and quick and accurate results,” added Desai.

The app has seen a steady growth with over 6000 doctors listed before its official launch. . Patients can book an appointment and get real-time confirmations for their appointments. The app also allows patients to rate doctors and hospitals thus ensuring the healthcare providers strive to provide best services at all times.
“At MyMedicNow we remain committed to ensure that patients are able to get instant access to healthcare services, with ongoing community support, and without the need to talk to an agent. It's a revolutionary step that aims to benefit the entire healthcare community, from patients to doctors to hospitals and clinics alike,” concluded Dhaval Desai.

To access the app, users have toregister with an email id or Facebook account. Once the registration is complete, users can customise search based on doctors, conditions, symptoms, hospitals or specialties, view professional profile and ratings of doctors and make a real-time booking for select doctors. The app allows the users to directly access the schedule of the doctors, find directions and add favourites for their search items. Additionally, adding the family insurance cards and medical reports makes it easyto access the details when needed. The app also allows making appointments for family members. Another highlight of the app is the SOS service that directly calls the UAE emergency number to help patients during an emergency.

Together with UAE's love for smartphones, and a desperate need for quality and timely healthcare service, MyMedicNow has room for not just growth in the UAE, but also across the region.
