Many more innovative things are yet to arrive in the mHealth space
Kunal Sinha, CEO, HealthcareMagic
We are an online-wellness company and we recently signed our 50th corporate client. We take pride in providing wellness services to clients like SAP, Dell, McAfee, Lenovo, and HSBC. We provide services like E-Opinion from specialists, Doctor Live Chat, EAP (Employee Assistance Program “ Counselling), Personalised Diet Chart and Health Risk Assessment “ HRA. Our services have helped our clients realise quantifiable gains resulting in higher productivity.
There have been lots of advancements by many innovative companies during the last 10 years. Now, we have SMS based medication reminder and tip services; we have newer initiatives of connecting doctor and patients through mobile phones. Medical devices can now transmit the readings to doctors sitting in a larger hospital. Telemedicine and its portability to mobile devices is happening. So theres a lot happening and I believe that it is just the beginning as many more innovative things are yet to come to the market.
Our major contribution is in connecting experts to the common man. For example, if a person in Indore needs to get opinion from a top Cardiologist or Oncologist in India or abroad, he can send his report online and get the recommendation of top cardiologists through Healthcaremagic platform. We have over 3500 top doctors answering questions from our users. The doctors get paid for each answer that they provide through HealthcareMagic platform.
