-A +A
Patients will be able to make appointments online using the IMSS Digital app for smartphones and tablets starting early next year.

For the first time ever, Mexico's public healthcare system, the Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS), will allow patients to make appointments online through its IMSS Digital app for smartphones and tablets.

IMSS' General Director, Mikel Arriola, announced that tests for the program are well underway and the service is expected to be launched during the first quarter of 2017.

According to Mikel Arriola, thanks to the new IMSS Digital platform, 19 out of 25 of the healthcare system's most common administrative procedures can now be performed online, which has resulted in savings of nearly 5 billion pesos (nearly 250 million dollars).
