EpiCura is the first online clinic in Italy: patients can receive a telephone consultation, request a video-consult or book health services.
“If only I could call the doctor”. We all say this when we have small doubts about when to take a medicine or how to deal with therapy. However, it is not always possible to contact your general practitioner: between holidays and shifts, no doctor is available 24 hours a day. To guarantee continuous and constant health care, Alessandro Ambrosio and Gianluca Manitto have developed EpiCura, the first digital clinic in Italy. It is an innovative online platform that manages the health and social care services provided by a network of 700 professionals throughout the country. Accessing the service is very simple. The patient must connect to the website www.epicuramed.it or call the toll free number 800909209. The next step is to indicate the professional (there are pediatricians, orthopedists, dentists, cardiologists) you need, the preferred time and complete the online payment. At the agreed time the doctor of the EpiCura network will contact the patient at the number indicated for a telephone consultation or video consultation. At the end, the patient can book a home visit in the cities of Turin, Milan, Rome, Florence, Naples, Bologna, Brescia, Genoa, Catania and Verona.
The online services of the EpiCura platform
There are many online services available with EpiCura. You can book physiotherapy sessions, nursing services and personal care services – at home, in hospital and in nursing homes – both day and night, for the elderly, sick or disabled, but also general medical examinations, paediatric and veterinary visits. Our goal – said Gianluca Manitto, CEO and co-founder of EpiCura – is to take care of people’s health, at all times, with simplicity, even in case of emergencies or inability to move from home. Our new service brings the value of EpiCura to the entire Italian territory thanks to the video and teleconsultation our professionals can begin to reach patients online throughout the peninsula, anticipating the advantages that the complete extension of our services will bring to the territory. We give you the opportunity to resolve any doubts in a few hours through the experience of certified professionals who are part of our network. It may be to collect a second opinion after a medical examination, for psychological support that does not always require a physical presence, or for a doubt related to particular behaviors or sudden illnesses of your pet. There are an infinite number of situations in which the support of a health professional may be necessary and EpiCura solves many of them”.
