With everything that we use in our day – to – day lives, going online – why should health care stay back? Aircel has launched a first of it’s kind tele-healthcare delivery service for mobile phones in association with the Apollo Hospitals Group. Aimed at addressing the healthcare needs of the masses through tele-medicine, this service provides online interactive healthcare in real-time basis by utilising modern technology and telecommunications.
According to Aircel’s Chief Operating Officer, this new service will allow patients to consult physicians and specialists over video for immediate health care. These services will gradually go pan-India and even people living in remote areas, villages and small towns will be most benefited from it. This sounds nice, but the question is in rural areas people are reluctant to spend money for even basic health, so will they go for this all new mobile health care service?
The Aircel Apollo Mobile HealthCare’ service will be available at Rs.45 per month. The service is slated to launch during this Diwali and will be available in Chennai and Tamil Nadu circles.
