Remedinet – Hospital app
Authorized people from the hospital with valid user ID on the Remedinet platform will be able to log in anytime from anywhere and check the status of their claim. This will eliminate any need to be at the desk all the time. Hospitals housed in large complexes with multiple buildings will benefit tremendously from this app as the hospital staff will now be able to access the progress of the claims through their mobile phone – from any building, wing or department, any time. They can access the entire history of the claim on the app simply by entering either the name of the patient or the reference number of the claim.
Remedinet – Consumer app

The application is easy to navigate and information can be accessed by entering either the name of the patient or the reference number of the claim. The system does not require the customer to approach the customer service department or the claims office and wait in a queue to seek information. Using this convenient option, consumers can obtain information on their handheld devices as well as enjoy the freedom of access – anytime and from anywhere.
