Trustdoc.in wins Innovative Idea of the Year award
Indian specialised treatment opinion platform Trustdoc.in wins the Innovative Idea of the Year award at the 2018 Elets Healthcare and Wellness Summit.
Consulting qualified senior retired doctors from the country’s leading government hospitals has been made possible with Trustdoc.in, a speciality treatment opinion platform of IndiaVirtualHospital.com. This portal has won the Innovative Idea of the Year award at the 2018 Elets Healthcare, and Wellness Summit held at New Delhi on 26th March.
The portal uses the technology to help the patients consult qualified professionals without having to travel to bigger cities. To avail the services, one can get in touch by calling, texting, emailing or accessing the web interface.
The healthcare summit was organised by Elets Technomedia, which is Asia and Middle East’s top research organisation. The award was presented to Swadeep Srivastava, Chief Belief Officer at IndiaVirtualHostital.com.
Srivastava said, “We are very happy to receive this recognition. When a patient is recommended for a surgical procedure or operation, and that too critical in nature, such as Organ Transplant, Oncology Surgery, Bypass etc., the patient and the family members are surrounded by number of questions on the diagnosis, the treatment line, its pros & cons, recovery chances and similar queries. Trust Doc addresses all these queries by taking opinions from the pool of veteran doctors who are mostly retired from super speciality hospitals like AIIMS, PGI, Safdarjung, Armed Forces etc.”
“Making the best use of technology, the whole process of TrustDoc is tech-driven, thereby removing the hassles of patients who otherwise need to travel to a bigger city to take an opinion from a senior doctor,” Srivastava added.
Trustdoc.in has partnered with 100 plus senior retired doctors who have worked with big government hospitals such as AIIMS, PGI, Safdarjung etc. The portal caters to more than 20 specialities.
It is notable that many Indian healthcare startups are making a big mark in the international market. As per a report from Inc42 DataLab in 2017, technology-based healthcare startups in India raised about $346 Million in funding. Netmeds, an online pharmacy startup, bagged the most significant $14 Million in funding. Other leading startups that secured funding include 1mg, Practo, Portea Medical, Curefit etc.
