Many working professionals are falling prey to a lot of diseases. Getting access to medical facilities especially during wee hours becomes quite a difficult task. However, with the launch of Virtual medical Kiosk in the city by ehealth Access, there is some hope for Bangloreans.
Around 1,500 such clinics are being launched in the city with the motive of providing better access to basic healthcare.
The medical set-up would be stationed in corporate organisations, BPOs, shopping places and also rural areas. The set-ups will be complete with touch screen system, audio-visual capabilities, diagnostic equipment, scanner and assisted by a medical practitioner.
The patient merely has to step inside the clinic and choose his doctor from the given panel.
The patient-doctor consultation would be carried out through audio-visual facilities like web-cams, video conferencing and phone which would be available 24/7.
From diagnostic equipment to all the basic medical tests, this medical Kiosk would guarantee all such basic amenities. It is also trying to gain a foot-hold in the rural sector of the state.
The main factors about this new facility is that the procedure is cheaper in comparison to usual consultation with doctor and also less time consuming as there is no requirement for prior appointment for just a basic health check-up.
Also, for the corporate organisations, the payment system is prepaid.
This makes it quite affordable for the organisations and also for other people.
“If you catch a minor cold, you don't have to stand in a long queue or have to shell out huge amount of money, which is regularly seen in our country,” said Jayadeep Reddy, CEO and Founder, ehealth Access. This system also guarantees high level of security and proficient doctor panel besides economical and efficient treatment. This new conglomeration of medical practice and technology promises to address the medical issues which is faced in day-to-day life in the city.
