"We are pleased with the reception of our new service" said Dr. Peter Ivančák PhD., CEO of Lexum in April 2010. "It is not every day that we in healthcare IT get to launch services that are so tangible and obviously beneficial to the patient. With 77% of our patients' mobile phone numbers recorded on our patient administration system we are already reaching most of our patients via the mobile channel. As a result of the early success at the Lexum Clinic in Prague, we aim to expand the iPLATO service across our clinics in the Czech Republic. Within our commitment to offering a top quality experience to our patients we are looking forward to working with iPLATO to lead the development of mobile health services in Central and Eastern Europe."
"Together with T-Mobile we hope to accelerate the growth of mHealth across the Czech Republic," says Tobias Alpsten, Managing Director at iPLATO. "High mobile penetration - by far the highest in central and eastern Europe " makes the Czech Republic a very good environment for innovation in mHealth. Following our strategy to develop world class mHealth tools in partnership with local health and care organisations such as Lexum we hope to work with the Czech government on improving health through mHealth Hubs and creating employment in this growth sector."
