Cognitant produces visual and interactive health information in 3D for patients to view on their own smartphones, tablets, computers or using virtual reality headsets (at home or in the clinic). These 3D experiences answer questions such as “what causes my condition?”, “how does this medicine work?” and “how can I avoid complications?” and are easy for people of all ages and backgrounds to understand. The ability to transport people into a virtual world means that complex information can be visualised and explained clearly and effectively.
We work with patients, doctors and healthcare professionals to develop information and experiences that enable them to make the most of each consultation and for patients to make informed decisions about their own health.
Healthinote is a platform that enables doctors and other healthcare professionals to prescribe information to patients simply and quickly. Whether it’s a face to face or virtual consultation, clinicians can provide relevant health information at the point of care to help patients to take more control of their health. Patients know that the information is credible and personalised to them.
Healthinote is a free service for doctors and patients and is funded by partners including patient groups, health insurers and health industry. Launching in the UK in June 2019, Healthinote provides:
The combination of our 3D content and Healthinote provides a very powerful service for improving knowledge and understanding about health. Empowering people to take control of their health.
