September 26 2019: Visit Health is a Delhi based Healthtech company that aims to solve the problems faced by Indians in accessing quality healthcare viz. inconvenience, confusion and high costs.
A brainchild of four engineers from BITS Pilani – Anurag Prasad, Shashvat Tripathi, Vaibhav Singh and Chetan Anand – who have faced the problem of inaccessibility to quality healthcare, firsthand. Visit brings together the practitioners and the patients. Both these groups so far have struggled with a system that restricts access, makes it hard to control when and where care occurs, and on whose terms. Using cutting edge artificial intelligence (AI) based technology Visit facilitates timely, accurate and cost effective primary healthcare - preventive as well as curative.
The app is available free for Android users and for iOS users .
