Now, Get A Doctor’s Appointment Online

Bengaluru, March 11: The biggest advantage of the internet is that it makes life easier. After bill payments, ticket bookings and online shopping the latest entrant is getting a doctor’s appointment or the services of a hospital online.

Bengaluru-based PeopleHealth has created a portal that will provide a platform for the patients to find, compare and select the best of the healthcare services from the hospitals they like.

“Healthcare is one industry where people want to know, but have least awareness on the availability and the actual costs involved. With our technology in place, we will enable people to compare the services and select the best hospital or doctor based on their economic condition and location,” said Gridharan Vidhi, Co-founder and chief technology officer at people health.

He also said that they were in touch with many corporate organizations, who want to provide medical facilities for their employees.

PeopleHealth provides wide range of options right from dermatology, eye care, transplantations to surgeries. “The biggest challenge for any patient is the lack of awareness on their own health and going blindly by their physician’s advice. On the other hand, the doctors, especially from the rural areas are finding pain points in referring their patients to the best talents due to their lack of network. With our technology on place, the doctors or hospitals can get networked with each other,” Vidhi said further adding that the technology is going to get customized so that the patients can download the application, while a doctor can download another application which will keep the records of the patients.

An ERP system is also planned to be on place so that a patient or corporate or a hospital can check the hygiene of an individual or a group or anyone. The company is already in touch with many hospitals and is planning to monetize the same through their aggressive campaigns.
