BANKING ON YOUR HEALTH
Most people are well-organised and prepared when it comes to their finances, but not their health. You might have a financial advisor to help manage your assets but have you thought of having one point of contact for all your health needs? Zarmina Jafar, founder and director of The Health Bank, tells us about an innovative way to safeguard your future health.
What is The Health Bank?
Imagine a concierge service for your healthcare needs, only much more. The Health Bank will not only bring together a lifetime of health records in one electronic format, but you also get a care specialist who is available on the phone 24/7 and can organise everything from emergency treatment on your travels to second medical opinions from the world’s leading specialists. They can also give recommendations on wellness, health screening and aesthetics.
When would I typically use it?
How many of us have lived in more than one country and have our health records dotted around all over the world? The Health Bank will bring these records together and you can access them any time through their online portal or app. Another benefit, particularly for parents travelling with kids, is that The Health Bank has a network of over 25,000 hospitals and physicians worldwide and can advise you 24/7 on the best course of action if your child gets ill on your travels. What does it offer?
It offers you impartial medical guidance, giving you choices when it comes to your healthcare. It remains completely up to date on the latest treatments, techniques and trends, and in the event of an emergency, can coordinate all healthcare visits, advice and follow ups.
