A healthcare app that contributes to person-centered care
Be part of influencing your own treatment!
Your answers are important
The 1:st officially approved mobile app at Karolinska University Hospital
The Medipal App is easily downloaded by you as a patient or user after that the healthcare professional, or other staff at your Medical Center, have registered you in the Medipal system. Once you’ve downloaded Medipal on your mobile phone, you can start answering questions. The questions will automatically come up on your phone when it’s time to respond. It is the healthcare professional or other authorized staff, who have decided what questions, and how often and when they want you to answer the questions. When you have finished replying, the answers are sent encrypted so that the healthcare professional or other staff can see your answers in clear graphs.
Your health status
The health care monitors your answers.
Thanks to your registrations, the healthcare professional or other authorized person can follow your answers through Medipal. You as a patient are also able to follow your results. Your answers appear in clear graphs, and when new response results are recorded, they are updated immediately. The graphs is a very practical tool for the health care at a return visit or telephone contact, or for example, for research.
Important to remember!
Det är viktigt att komma ihåg att om du blir akut sjuk, kraftigt försämrad eller mår dåligt måste du själv ta kontakt med sjukvården!

Medipal for relatives
Medipal can be a valuable support for relatives of the elderly or of children to increase security in their everyday life.
