Health Presence (Telemedicine)

The ifa has expanded its extensive offers by another innovative service through the introduction of health presence. Health presence offers the answer to countless questions on medical consultation. With the help of telemedicine, we can confront the deprivation of primary health care in remote areas in Switzerland and worldwide. Medical consultations for pensioners living in residential neighbourhoods for the elderly will be facilitated, psychotherapeutic care for expats in their own mother tongue will be enabled and consultation hours for employees on isolated oil rigs can be made feasible. All this will be made possible thanks to life size and real-time audio and video transmissions of the highest quality. The ifa has access to the technical equipment as well as the qualified doctors and therapists needed to administrate telemedicine to patients in their home country and abroad.
