India Virtual Hospital is a digital web and mobile based platform which acts as a medical concierge for all healthcare and medical needs of the masses. The India Virtual Hospital team is trained to support and help patients to manage their medical and surgical care.
Speaking on the occasion, Swadeep Srivastava, Chief Belief Officer, India Virtual Hospital said, “We are very happy to receive this recognition. When a patient is recommended for a surgical procedure or operation and that too critical in nature, such as Organ Transplant, Oncology Surgery, Bypass etc., the patient and the family members are surrounded by number of questions on the diagnosis, the treatment line, its pros & cons, recovery chances and similar queries. Trust Doc addresses all these queries by taking opinions from the pool of veteran doctors who are mostly retired from super speciality hospitals like AIIMS, PGI, Safdarjung, Armed Forces etc.”
“Making the best use of technology, the whole process of Trust Doc is tech-driven, thereby removing the hassles of patients who otherwise need to travel to a bigger city to take an opinion from a senior doctor,” Srivastava said.
