ALERT launched ALERT® HEALTH NEWS, an extension of the current main healthcare portal, ALERT'S HEALTHCARE PORTAL (available in Portuguese only), for the Android platform.
This will enable users to keep up-to-date with the main news on healthcare, the most recent research in medicine and read exclusive Healthcare Magazine articles.
Besides providing information about advice and alerts sent out by INFARMED, the Portuguese regulating authority for medicine and health products, users will find information on clinics and private practices. They will be able to save that and other types of contact information, such as working hours and agreements with health insurance companies, directly in the mobile device's contact list. Furthermore, users will also have access to directions from their current location to the selected private practice with the device's map.
