As one of the many measures taken by the Luxembourgish Government to halt the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus, a telemedicine platform in Luxembourg now known as ‘eConsult’ has been brought live with the help of CDN services provider G-Core Labs. Wagner Group acted as the main technical consultant of the project.
eConsult is freely available to all medical professionals and all residents and workers of Luxembourg. The eConsult telemedicine platform allows patients to have an online consultation with their doctor, dentist or midwife. This consultation can take place via audio or video.
It allows doctors to issue prescriptions and to securely exchange medical documents and test results with patients. The eConsult service is compatible with all popular operating systems and devices, including smartphones, tablets and laptops.
“Considering the highly contagious nature of the virus, we had to find a means to help reduce the risk of contamination,” said Hervé Barge, Director of the eSanté Agency swich has been mandated to put the Telemedicine platform live. “We had to allow professionals to treat their patients while protecting themselves. This led us to decide to put eConsult in place.”
EDH Data Center
Wagner Group acted as the main technical consultant of the project. The solution is fully hosted and secured in a dedicated cloud environment developed by G-Core Labs in collaboration with the Wagner Group. It is physically located in the EDH data center in Luxembourg.
“Nobody was prepared for such a situation, it was both an incredible challenge and opportunity,” said André Reitenbach, CEO of G-Core Labs. “Our teams worked around the clock and we managed to deploy a fully functional and secure solution which is now being used by thousands of patients and professionals.”
“For us it was really important to have a partner with the necessary expertise and fully engaged in the project,” said David Celis of the Wagner Group. “That’s why we chose to collaborate with G-Core Labs.”
