Sehat Kahani uses a virtual telemedicine and video consultation platform that allows previously home based and out of work female doctors to resume work from the comfort of their homes and provide health consultations, treatment and counselling.

These female health experts can be approached via our unique Hub and Spoke Model:

Spokes(focused or urban users who have access to smartphones or technology):

Our E- health mobile application by which patients can access female health experts 24/7 using their mobile phones.This mobile application can also disseminate health education via notifications, provided at home lab and pharmacy delivery options using Lab and pharmacy partners.

How Solution Can Be (or is) Used in Coronavirus Response

The Sehat Kahani E- clinics as well as the mobile application provides a much safer solution for patients approaching with symptoms leading to coronavirus and also provide counselling and preventive measures to those who are reliant upon Google searches instead of professional consultations.With the outbreak on its peak, the feature of a video call ensures safety of the medical professionals along with assuring the patients never have to wait for hours which decreases the probability of the spread of coronavirus.

The response line also enables qualified doctors to link patients with different service providers via the ‘Sehat Kahani’ E- clinics or App by providing prescriptions for medical supplies required by them which can be accessed in the clinics or be delivered on their doorstep using our service partners. The intention is to restrain the patients from exposing the virus to their surroundings by visiting public places such as pharmacies or health facilities unnecessarily.
