Relieves the doctor and increases patient comfort: Alexander Locher develops a booking platform for practicing doctors.
According to several studies, a doctor spends up to ten minutes gathering relevant documents before a consultation. These include sensitive medical data, but also information that is only of administrativ importance. “Their processing could be massively simplified”, comments Alexander Locher, who grew up in a doctor’s houshold. That’s why he develops together with a business informatics expert a booking platform for doctors working on outpatient basis. The tool allows you to put available appointments on the net or to inform patients about current waiting times. In addition, it has interfaces to practice accouting. Locher has been inspired by his work experience in East Asia: “The digitalisation of the health care system is already well advanced there.”
