Qtel develops mHealth solution
Diabetics in Kuwait, Iraq, Palestine can now access personalised alerts and health information
Qtel is offering a new mobile health service to diabetics in Kuwait, Iraq and Palestine. Users who sign up to the service are able to receive personalised alerts and information on exercise and diet. Qtel Group will soon be offering this service in other countries where it is present.
The Qtel Group is organising a series of workshops on the subject of mHealth in association with the global mobile association, the GSMA, as part of a wider series of international events held with the mHealth Alliance, a campaign to champion the use of mobile technologies to improve health throughout the world.
A major part of the Qtel Group's ongoing strategy is to enhance the mHealth offering for all its customers.
"We are really pleased to be working with the Qtel Group to bring this workshop series here to Doha; mobile is increasingly playing a significant role within healthcare and is supporting healthcare services across the globe," said Dr Craig Fridericks, director of Health, GSMA. We are working with mobile network operators (MNO) worldwide to highlight how they can implement mHealth initiatives into the market that will offer significant health and lifestyle benefits to end users."
