Personalised multimedia digital consultation to revolutionise the doctor-patient consultation process.

Project description

Software for digital consultation

On average, a doctor-patient consultation lasts about 10 minutes in Europe with the patient, remembering only 14 % of what was discussed. Patients spend some EUR 65 billion each year in hospital stays and doctors’ visits because of their failure to understand when and how prescribed medication should be taken. The EU-funded project Anatomus provides personalised digital recordings of the doctor-patient consultation, helping improve communication, patient engagement and treatment plan adherence.


Anatomus is a software platform that enables personalised and recorded doctor-patient consultations, which enhance patient education and increase treatment plan adherence.

Seal of Excellence recipient in February 2019, eMedia is an award winning medical multimedia software design company, registered and based in Ireland, specialising in 3D medical education software - most notably, creators of the Pocket Anatomy, the company has developed Anatomus, a software platform that is working on using interactive 3D anatomy to improve the overall doctor-patient communication process.

The doctor-patient consultation lasts on average 10 minutes in Europe, resulting, in the patient, remembering only 14% of what was discussed. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), “in developed countries, adherence among patients suffering chronic diseases averages only 50%”, which leads to higher hospitalisation, higher costs (€125billion/year), higher social impact and premature deaths (200,000/year).

Based on these challenges, Anatomus aims to help patients understand and remember what the doctor said by using interactive multimedia visualisations of common illnesses on mobile devices in the doctor's office, which can be shared with patients for improved understanding, recall, and treatment plan adherence.
