This decade of 21st century is definitely a game changing era for the humanity as a whole with the advent of internet and mobile. How we make it useful for humans especially for health care was a question that was a puzzle in the minds of many a number of people. “The answer to the puzzle could be getting health queries and consultations done online via”, says Dhruv kumar, the founder of

Health queries, phone and virtual consultations?
Yes. Posting a health query on a mobile or through the internet is the easiest way to get an expert answer. The basic etiquette’s of asking a health query is simple. i.e. age,gender,past issue, current issue has to be posted in the order for a health expert to answer. The reply for the health query can be followed up for subsequent answers there by getting solutions. Phone consultations offer absolute privacy to the doctor and patient as our system automatically connect them in a unique voice conference. Virtual consultations (Online doctor consultation) can be done with a doctor to get the health issues addressed as well as that offers a face to face interaction.


Is it safe?
Well. When health queries and virtual consultations are done with accredited doctors or health experts,it’s definitely safe. Also checking whether the medium i.e. the portal where queries are asked should be checked for Security Certificates. It’s estimated that 70 percent of primary health care issues can be solved through this medium. This number is certainly better than zero percentage and not getting issues addressed. Of course this is not definitely an alternative for real time consultation. But a mitigation to overcome the time/travel problems and chaos to meet a doctor.
