Galenicum and Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu launch an innovative health guide
July 3, 2015
The pharmaceutical company Galenicum in collaboration with Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu, a Spanish prestigious medical institution, has developed a complete and innovative online health Guide which satisfies an unmet need up to now: to make available to everybody a source of easy and understandable information about diseases and their treatments, which will facilitate the communication between doctors and patients.
Under the name of GalenicumVitae, this new health Guide, informs about more than 150 diseases in an easy and understandable way. Beyond that, users can find tips on healthy lifestyles habits specifically aimed at the prevention of diseases.
Galenicumvitae is an online platform, which has been specially designed for computers, tablets and smartphones. The Guide is available in Spanish and English and it contains more than 700 pages of information with original and didactic pictures. Furthermore, it is organized into 14 therapeutic areas identified by different colors that facilitate the search of information, for example: red identifies cardiovascular diseases, orange identifies dermatological diseases, and cancer, for instance, is identified with green. In addition, GalenicumVitae will be updated over time with new material.
Sergio Malagrida, International Manager of Galenicum, highlighted "the importance of making available an innovative resource that allows to easily understand diseases, treatments and also gives tips in order to improve the quality of life of the society”. Furthermore, he emphasized the uniqueness of this innovative tool because "we have managed to humanize the medical and pharmaceutical information, and this fact will help patients with their adherence to medication, which sometimes is hampered due to a lack of comprehension of the illness.
Meanwhile, the responsibles of Parc Sanitari Sant Joan de Déu have expressed the added value that GalenicumVitae provides "not only to patients and their families but also to the Doctors and Health Professionals since this tool helps us to make the patients understand about specific diseases”. Moreover, the professionals from Sant Joan de Déu have highligthed the importance of illness prevention and healthy habits as the best keys to be healthy. For this reason, GalenicumVitae has been considered as a very valuable tool for the society as a whole.
