The AOK Health Navigator requests typical symptoms before patients enter the waiting room and provides you with an anamnesis summary. Additionally, it provides practical translation tools for typical situations appearing during treatment and for the next therapeutic instruction such as blood tests, drug taking or referrals to specialists.
