Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children (GOSH) in London recently announced the launch of GOSH Global, a free-to-download app that allows healthcare professionals to access a database of clinical specialties and consultants available at the hospital, as well as instantly refer a patient for treatment.
The new app was officially launched at Arab Health 2016 taking place in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Due to an increase in international patient referrals, GOSH wanted to streamline the way patients were referred for treatment and inform healthcare professionals of services and consultants available at GOSH at the click of a button, the hospital said.
The International and Private Patients Service at GOSH treats more than 5,000 children from more than 80 different countries each year. In particular, GOSH treats more than 2,000 patients from the Middle East each year, specifically those from the Gulf and the UAE.
