Finally an app that lets you ditch appointment booking and gets you instant real-time consultations with doctors 24 x 7
Ever heard of an Online Doctor? It’s a term that emerged during the 2000s, used by both the media and academics, to describe a generation of physicians and health practitioners who deliver healthcare, including drug prescription, over the internet.
The Problem Areas
One of the most prevalent problems that people in India are facing in healthcare services is the lack of access to it. Though this is not seen much in in urban areas, if we drive towards the outskirts of most metro cities, we will find it hard to find any significant medical help at bay. Diagnosis and treatment is just not accessible to hundreds of millions of Indians.
Even today, people living in remote areas do not have access to the specialized doctors, due to which they have to travel a great distance to access those basic health requirements.
Moreover, most neglect their health for several days as they don’t have enough time to book an appointment and go to see their doctor. The city traffic doesn’t help either.
Even doctors are trying their best to manage life and work and try to ensure that they could give as much time to their patients as they can. However, the number of patients visiting clinics is inconsistent, thus leaving them with ample amount of time with less productive work.
This brought about the realization that if doctors were not confined to just their geographical boundaries of practice, they could help more patients. Doctors needed to grow their outreach to patients across the country, by interacting with them.
