Joint Development of Pocket Doctor, a remote medical
and health assistance service
OPTiM and MRT form a business alliance for IT medical service/health care
TOKYO, Japan (September 2, 2015) – OPTiM (TSE Mothers: 3694), a leading provider of business-related applications for smart devices, and MRT Inc. (TSE Mothers: 6034), a provider of medical information platforms, proudly announce that they have formed a business alliance for IT medical service/health care field, and will create new services in the field.
By combining OPTiM's remote support technology based on screen-sharing, MRT's abundant pool of medical information, and the network of Japan’s doctors and medical institutions, we will cooperatively construct a service that allows people who have concerns about their health to easily get assistance from remote medical specialists. This service realizes sharing patient's complexion or affected area with a doctor using a camera on patient's smart device such as a smartphone, and allows much more professional medical advice. People can easily get prompt assistance not only when too busy to visit a medical institution, but also when in an area without enough doctors, while staying abroad or when wondering if it is necessary to rush to a hospital. Specific service contents and their starting time will be announced later.
Based in Tokyo, Japan, OPTiM provides internet-based services that improve its clients’ interactions with technology in all aspects of daily life, "We make the net as simple as breathing." Our services include Optimal Biz, a cloud device management service; Optimal Remote, a remote management service; Optimal Support, a setup support service; and the Unlimited content and software suite series.
Based in Tokyo, Japan, MRT provides platforms for medical information. Our vision is to create rich medical treatment through doctors and IT.
