Preformatted sheets are also available to facilitate the integration of information and its storage. Reminders regarding vaccination, blood tests or re-evaluation of a patient’s treatment may also be planned.

Hipok secures exchanges between doctors
The name Hipok comes from Hippocrates. «We are sure that he would have validated our solution», says Elien Meynard, CEO of the Bordeaux startup Hipok.
