In support of the government's recent regulatory go-ahead on telemedicine, Meddo Health, has launched an advanced tele consult platform for its doctors for free.

According to a statement, with most outpatient care facilities not operational, many patients are not able to get clear health advice from doctors – both physicians and specialists. To address the need, the company now has a dedicated platform to serve patients seeking medical advice from qualified and curated sets of specialists.

Over 200 plus doctors across 16 specialties are already live on the platform with more clinicians being added every day to cope with the surge. The platform is open for partner doctors as well as new doctors who are willing to lend their medical services to patients at this time of need. Meddo says it has already recorded a 30% boost in tele consultations in the first week of go-live.

This platform is now being offered to all doctors absolutely free of charge. Patients can book tele consultations through a dedicated landing page for teleconsultations on the website, android or the iOS patient app. The patient can upload their symptoms and other medical history prior to the doctor consultation. At the time of consult, the patient and doctor are connected through an encrypted and private chatroom through the Meddo platform.

”Not only tele-consultation saves the commute, respecting the rules of this strict lockdown but is also a great endeavor for people to consume technological advancements at best. By offering this platform to doctors for free, we want to help get timely medical attention to as many patients as possible; not only related to Coronavirus, but also any other chronic or episodic ailments. We have kept the interface extremely simple to ensure the best patient experience,” said Saurabh Kochhar, Co-founder & CEO, Meddo in a statement.

The Gurugram-based startup, also has a dedicated website for COVID-19 verified information and everything one needs to know about the virus including the new developments and myths. Meddo also works with its ICMR approved private labs and has started booking COVID-19 test booking through the platform.
