CORēHealth overturns the traditional patient care pathways, bringing, for the first time, digital innovation directly into their hands (App Mobile) enabling them to have their own medical history, their care plan and maintain a constant, regulated dialogue with their doctor. Doctors can manage the clinical history of their patients in an integrated environment, optimizing care time, reducing inappropriate access to hospital facilities, developing their professional skills, including digital skills, according to a multidisciplinary approach to care taking with a single common point of access and moving the care activities of chronically ill patients to an environment as close as possible to the patient’s home.
