As we all know Information Technology is making boundaries disappear and reducing distances in our daily lives. Similarly we are building services and products where healthcare can be delivered across boundaries and distances and the gap between the doctor and a patient reduces. Beyond this are entering newer medical gadgets & devices, wearable healthcare technology, decision support software and many applications which are vastly changing how healthcare is managed and provided. Today we are moving towards a more user centric healthcare realm. Number of medical and allied health facilities are growing fast and are becoming more accessible.
However in the fast paced life of today there is a lack of clarity due to huge number of options available. Often the search for a proper physician becomes an agonizing experience. And very often there is a need to seek advice or a second-opinon from a more established expert as a cross check or to overcome the anxiety or doubts about a particular diagnosis or treatment plan.

How to connect with doctors and health professionals
The simplest way to connect with the health provider would be to call us on our easy to remember helpline number +91-9015811800. Our health manager will register you with the online service and you will receive a Login ID and password. After this you must log-in and update you personal health account with as much detail as possible.
We have a detailed section where you can add you allergies, family history, past and present health conditions, current medications and other parameters like lab results. After doing this, scan and upload your previous prescriptions, doctor consultations and X-Ray, MRI, Mammogram, etc. Its a good idea to share with your doctor as much information as you can. Its helps him or her assess your problem better and give a more sound advice.
Complete your Health Details
Go to “My Health Details” section and try and fill in as much information about yourself as possible. This shows that you’ve taken the time to try to help yourself, it saves us from reiterating obvious answers, and most of all it helps you get a more specific and relevant answer!
Update Allergies and Trackers
If you have any allergies specially adverse reaction to any medicine please mention them. Update weight, height, blood pressure, pulse, blood sugar and social history with latest values. This will help the doctor. Many problems can be traced back to our genes so do not forget to update the family history section.
Online Consultation Section
GO to the doctors section and select the doctor you would like to connect with and then press the Online Consultation Button. As in most cases, if you ask a vague question, you’ll get a vague answer. Try and describe your problem in detail…like, location of the problem or body part, when did it start, what aggravates it, what gives you relief, current medications, etc.
Include by attachment or in the description any previous consultations or advice. If you have any lab reports or radiology films include them in the attachments.
Call +91-9015811800 between 9.30 am to 6 pm IST for:-
