You can now get medical consultation, treatment and make appointments through your cellphone.
Taking healthcare to the next level, the WAP–enabled initiative will have multiple facilities, including registration, case history in brief, online chat with doctors for medical queries, appointment requests, commencing or renewing treatment plans.
Homoeopathy chain Dr Batras’ Positive Health Clinic on Thursday introduced the ‘Health in your hands’ scheme, which allows quick healthcare services.
For this, one should have a GPRS–enabled mobile, through which doctors can answer queries via live chat too.
At the launch of ‘mHealth clinic’, deputy managing director Dr Akshay Batra said: “Since mobile users constitute 40% of India's population, this facility will provide timely and accessible homeopathic healthcare solutions to patients across the country. This service targets those who have extremely hectic schedules.”
