A healthcare app that supports everything
from health care consultation to online medical

HELPO

SoftBank Group company HEALTHCARE TECHNOLOGIES Corp. Developed the healthcare app HELPO with the aim of supporting Japanese medical institutions and promoting new business in the healthcare field.

The company began providing HELPO to corporations and government municipalities from July 2020. The main service of HELPO is a Health & Medical Consultation Chat which allows users to freely consult with a medical team of physicians, nurses, and pharmacists 24 hours a day, 365 days a year when they start to feel poor physical condition (called presymptomatic disease) or when they feel uneasy about their physical condition. Based on the contents of the consultation chat, users will be advised on the appropriate action to take. If the user needs to see a physician at a medical institution, the app will provide guidance on the appropriate medical department. If response is possible through over-the-counter drugs, the app will provide information on the appropriate medicine available on Health Mall, an EC website for over-the-counter drugs.

The company also collaborates with MICIN Inc., which provides the online medical service “curon,” and started providing an online medical service function from June 2021. As a result of this tie-up, users of the HELPO app will become able to receive a full range of healthcare services from health and medical consultation to online medical treatment.
