How do you bring quality healthcare to over a billion people across India? That was the challenge Anurag Vohra, Chief Technology Officer, Apollo Tele Health Services had in front of him.
“Since doctors cannot reach every nook and corner of India, Apollo is setting up tele-clinics in all remote locations possible. At these tele-clinics, people can walk in and take consultations with family physicians or if needed, even our specialists via video conferencing,” Vohra says
|However, having operations and staff in remote locations comes with its own set of challenges. First of them is the ability to capture operational data from every tele-clinic remotely and ensure that things are running as they should. More importantly, not everyone in the field had access to a PC and even those who had one could only respond when they were logged into the system.
Vohra and his team wanted something more real-time – a mobile tool that was convenient for their field workers to use on the move and for the backend team to be able to compile reports quickly and act on them. They chose Kaizala.
