The fate of telehealth

During the pandemic, teleconsultations have gone up but post-COVID, it has declined sharply. Now, people are free to visit doctors offline. But still, patients can use the digital medium for payments, e pharmacy. It has also given them an opportunity to share their BP, and oxygen level readings through digital health devices. The future of telehealth is going to be very different from the current scenario. 

In March 2022, India made an important landmark in its digital health journey by completing 170,000 teleconsultations in a single day through its nationwide telemedicine service.

Future expansion plans

Pramod informs, “We will be working with hospitals across all geographies. We are planning to go deeper into India, UAE, and Africa. From a broader perspective, we are focusing on remote patient monitoring, home care, and telerehabilitation.”

Entrepreneurial journey

Pramod concludes, “Entrepreneurship is fun but it has its own set of challenges. You need to have a great team and family support. On the other side, it is very satisfying, you are able to make a real difference in people’s lives. Budding entrepreneurs should remain persistent, passionate, and positive. It’s like a marathon.”
