babylon now deployed across Jersey
Jersey becomes the first territory in the world to provide access to the babylon app for its entire population.
Digital Jersey and babylon would like to send out an enormous Thank You to you, our friends and supporters, who continue to enable us to make progress.
On Monday 17th November Digital Jersey teamed up with babylon to pioneer mass deployment of the babylon service. So far five surgeries on Jersey, providing services to over 55,000 residents, have signed up to the scheme.
"It's more convenient, more effective and [more] efficient.” Digital Jersey
“Hard to reach clients could access medical support [without] being seen coming in to a doctors surgery.” said Dr. Venn, Jersey GP to BBC News.
Jonathan Williams, Director of Social Security at States of Jersey said: “We’ve worked closely with GPs and Digital Jersey to offer patients more choice with how they receive services from their GPs.”
As well as video consultations, patients will be able to access their secure medical records, view recordings of their GP consultations, and access their personal health information quickly and conveniently from their mobiles.
The app is the gateway to the world’s first integrated mobile health service, and it is the first of its kind to be registered with the Care Quality Commission in the UK. If you haven’t already, download the app now and talk to a doctor on the go, the future of medicine is only a free download away.
