Eye health giant Optegra is leading the way in healthcare by collaborating with enterprising platform, Doctify.co.uk. Optegra has announced their partnership with Doctify, a platform which revolutionises the way patients connect with medical specialists. In this digital age, healthcare must keep up with the ever-evolving tech sector – something that can be achieved by partnering with fast moving tech companies.
Doctify is a UK health platform which provides a solution for patients who want to search, compare and book doctors online. The Optegra-Doctify partnership will give patients access to a large number of highly experienced NHS trained eye health consultants on Doctify. Patients will be able to read verified patient reviews and make an empowered specialist selection.
“We are always looking to enhance our relationships with healthcare professionals for patients to benefit from,” says Cat Acevedo, Marketing Executive at Optegra. “This partnership is a fantastic way of increasing accessibility to the highest quality Ophthalmic services with renowned Consultant Ophthalmologists and a wide range of treatments in specialist eye hospitals, to help individuals make an informed decision about their eye health.”
As of 2015, vision impairment affects over 2 million people in the UK and yet 50% of sight loss can be avoided or treated with with the right care. By joining forces with Doctify, Optegra’s eye specialists will increase their accessibility and boost their reach ensuring patients receive the very best treatment.
Dr Stephanie Eltz, co-founder of Doctify, says, “We seek to support and advance doctor-patient relationships by providing greater transparency and access to healthcare through innovation. The patients’ needs are at the heart of what we do.”
This collaboration will pave the way for further partnerships between established corporations and young companies, continuing the advancement of the way patients connect with medical specialists in the UK.
