Start-up to cut doctor wait lists?
According to a 2015 OECD report, Poland has the lowest number of doctors per capita -- just 2.3 per 1,000 people.

But who said medical consultations can't mostly be done remotely?
This is the question that has guided Polish healthcare startup Telemedi.co into creating an online platform for video consultations and secure chats with chosen healthcare specialists.
At any time of day, in any place, via computer or mobile app, remote medical consultations would help avoid queuing at doctors' offices, especially in countries like Poland.
To find out more about the service, Michał Owczarek talked to Telemedi.co CEO Paweł Sieczkiewicz.
“Many cases can be done online because you may be coming with a problem where the doctor doesn’t even look at your face -- because you are, for instance, bringing health results to show to your doctor or coming for a new prescription, ” Sieczkiewicz said.
