Intel and Spanish Society of Family Medicine & Community Collaborate to Create Tablet with App Store Exclusively for Doctors


Improving care for patients is a common goal for our healthcare team and partners, so I’m really excited to be able to share the outcome of a collaborative project we’ve been working on with the Spanish Society of Family Medicine and Community (semFYC).

Together we have created a tablet featuring an app store exclusively for doctors. Meeting the needs of healthcare professionals with an easy-to-use mobile device combined with medical applications that have the endorsement of a scientifically-recognised body in semFYC is incredibly exciting for all involved and a step-change for the way GPs and physicians access the latest clinical information.

Josep Basora, President of semFYC, spoke to me about the tablet and app store created in partnership with Intel: “When I started to drive this project I wanted to facilitate the right information, at the appropriate place and by the authorised time. Mobility is one of the keys that defines the work of the current healthcare professional.”

“For a physician, the possibility to use applications that have the endorsement of a scientific society such as semFYC has real significance, as it has the full assurance that the tool used is supported by rigorous governance. This has certainly had a positive effect on both resource optimisation and improvement of patient service.”

semFYC brings together more than 17 Societies of Family Medicine and Community in Spain covering a total of 19,500 GPs with a focus on improving the knowledge and skills of its members. The app store, which exclusively features medical applications, automatically updates installed apps with the latest information around procedures and drugs, thus reducing the time GPs require to update their knowledge and consequently increasing the quality of patient care.
