Manasije Mishra, the new Managing Director of DocOnline India, said, “It’s a privilege to work for an organization that is engaged in solving critical healthcare challenges in India. In the current public health emergency situation, private telemedicine providers like DocOnline have launched several initiatives to ensure support to our stressed healthcare system. I am looking forward to leading the team in this endeavour.”
DocOnline will offer an automated chatbot called ‘USHA’ to help people understand and analyse their coronavirus symptoms. This will help in classifying their COVID 19 risk as low, medium or high. Once the user classifies their COVID-19 risk, they could speak/chat/video call DocOnline’s in house doctors using the free online consultation app. In addition, DocOnline has decided to offer free doctor consultations for all health problems until the situation abates. DocOnline has dedicated five doctors to support the Karnataka Government’s COVID19 Helpline 104. These initiatives by DocOnline are directed towards supporting the community and the government in reducing the burden on our physical healthcare system.
