With the launch of this unique product, ehealth is looking at penetrating and serving a wider population. The way healthcare is delivered is a lot dependent on the physical access and availability of the medical practitioner. It's based on face-to-face interaction between the doctors and the patient. But with this device the patients can consult a wide array of doctors at the touch of a button from wherever they are, whenever they want.
The device could be deployed in a variety of places, including a corporate environment for employee use, at a retail store, at old age homes, or even in a gated community. The Virtual Medical Kiosk also aims to reach out as a channel to help the government towards the implementation of the Universal Health Care programme (UHC) with the help of NGOs in remote places. The Virtual Medical Kiosk serves as the second phase in ehealth's efforts to help patients connect seamlessly to doctors following the launch of its service www.dialurdoctor.com.
