Due to the pandemic, many governments, hospitals, e-pharmacies and even corporate hospitals have adopted telemedicine in their employee wellness strategies. There is a surge in tele-consultation facilities in hospitals. Those who need consultations prefer this method due to safety it provides as compared to going to the hospitals for consultation putting them as well as the doctors at higher risk. Doctors can consult the patient remotely which would protect the patients and the doctors from virus transmission. 

When the patient or caretaker calls the helpline number, doctors (Oncologist) talk to the patient to analyse their needs. The uploaded report and medical history will be useful for the patient who can interact with the doctor through audio or video. Then doctors will give advice and prescription of the medicine through the Helpline. Those who prevail in this service do not have to download any app because it operates even on a basic phone model.

The helpline functions from Monday to Saturday from 9 am to 5 pm.

Helpline no: 08047182786
