BUCHAREST, October 30 /PRNewswire/ -- In a joint press conference, Orange Romania & Medic4all launched Medic4you, the world's first customer oriented cellular e-health service.
"Health is the fundamental value of the quality of life, which is why, Orange and Medic4all are launching together the Medic4you service in Romania," stated Christos Phocas, Corporate Fixed Data Services Development Manager for Orange Romania.
Medic4you is a telemedicine service based on the newest telecommunication technologies and services. Medical consultants are now available for Orange clients subscribing to the Medic4you service throughout Romania at home and at the office, and while travelling abroad. Medic4you's doctors can review the client's medical information using any of 18 different languages, can prescribe drugs and offer a consultation or can send the patient to a specialising medical facility.
