Health start-up Eswasthalya Healthcare announced on Thursday that it has launched an app to provide online consultations for all kinds of illnesses and raise awareness of different aspects like proper nutrition and diet.
The app – SwasthU – would act as a virtual hospital and during the current pandemic situation such a platform was needed, said Babu Lal, maxillofacial surgeon, AIIMS alumnus, SwasthU consultant.
“From anywhere and anytime, a person can use the app. Through this app, a person can get a consultation, get a second opinion, do follow-ups and even get health related information, ”Lal told PTI.
He also said government funding will help the young company take this app to the next level.
Ankit Arora, co-founder of SwasthU and alumnus of AIIMS, said the vision is to make the entire healthcare ecosystem available on one platform.
The app will also give access to traditional health facilities like Ayurvedic, Homeopathy and Unani, Arora said, adding that all of these facilities are available by video call and conference call.
“We often make mistakes like not taking medication on time, not taking precautions and even eating irregularities. With these issues in mind, this app provides medication alarm, balance diet calculator and vaccination alarm for a child, ”he added.
Khushbu Soni, another co-founder of the company, said detailed and authentic information is available for issues related to pregnancy and childhood immunizations.
“In the future, we will be looking to connect pharmacies and insurance companies to the app so that we can provide all kinds of healthcare services on one platform,” added Soni.
