Healthcare is not a luxury anymore. In fact, the Indian healthcare industry is expected to reach a bulky US$280 Billion by 2020. A similar rising trend is that of E-commerce. Whether the reason is the ease of shopping, or that of availability or economy, ends up being of little consequence when the trends are seen. In recent times, e-commerce, has also joined hands with healthcare, giving rise to businesses that provide high-end medical care to people, over the magical platform, the internet.
Technology has advanced a lot. Over the last decade, technological development has been extremely fast, owing to the Industrial Revolution of the 18th and 19th Centuries. In addition to such large scale development, access to the internet has brought revolutionary growth to the masses.
AppiDoc, is a venture in the right direction, whose services can be availed on mobile devices as well as desktops, on its app and website, respectively. The aim of this project is to make availing healthcare easier for people, despite their geographical location against the doctor. Proper healthcare should never be seen as a luxury, but as a Human Right.
Appidoc is a revolutionary app and website that allows patients to reach medical practitioners without the hassles of travelling to clinics, killing time in waiting rooms and tolerating the disappointment of cancelled sessions after reaching a clinic. Not just for patients, it is also a great help for the doctors, who may no longer need to rush to clinics or hospitals for minor requirements. Here, patients can get a checkup done in just 5 simple steps:
Create an account.
Request an appointment
Make the payments
Upload previous reports, if any
Start the video, medical session
At the same time, medical practitioners can simply create their account, provide valid proofs, mention proper time slots for availability and start accepting patients’ requests for sessions. Through all this, AppiDoc does away with all the hassles that are generally connected with medical appointments, for doctors as well as patients.
The hassles associated with hospital/clinic visits include-
Landing an appointment.
Travelling to the clinic or doctor’s location.
Unavailability of the regular doctor when the patient or the doctor is travelling.
Visiting doctors’ offices, exposing oneself to Nosocomial infections (hospital borne infections)
Inability to reach due to weather, transportation, condition, etc.
Appidoc does away all such issues as the patient does not even have to leave his/her house for the doctor’s appointment. The best thing about AppiDoc is that a patient in Mumbai can easily consult a doctor in Bangalore, because physical proximity is no longer a factor of effect. Medical appointments are simplified through video and audio calls. Bringing together the trust of healthcare and the ease and comfort of e-commerce, this website and app gives patients the counsel of trusted doctors at a fraction of the expense and effort as compared to when they have to visit their doctors at the clinic.
The ease of use is just one of the many benefits of AppiDoc. The platform makes sure that only authentic doctors’ profiles are added to it. The doctor profiles are sorted to present valid ones and do away with the invalid ones. This is your complete healthcare support system.
