New Delhi [India], May 26 (ANI): Online hospital DocsApp registered a 25 percent month-on-month growth, and is aiming to serve more patients than all offline hospital chains, along with reaching 5 million downloads on Google Play Store by 2018. DocsApp is India's largest online hospital connecting patients to doctors through chat or call. Every day, over 1,200 people pay to consult specialist doctors online on the app, while the number of consultations facilitated every day by well-established single offline private hospitals in India is approximately 1000. Thus, DocsApp is revolutionising the healthcare sector with its unique offerings. According to a report by the Healthcare Performance Management Institute in 2013, and attributed to National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey 2006 (August 2008), 70 percent of the health issues can be handled online and only 30 percent issues require a patient to travel to the doctor. Since inception, DocsApp has been facilitating chat and call consultations to people, in all the corners of India, in less than 30 minutes. "From cost-effective consultations for primary health care in gynaecology, paediatrics, dermatology, diabetes to giving a second opinion on cardiac, arthritis and cancer, DocsApp has made it possible for the masses to access quality medical consultation across geographical locations. We designed a safe, private and secure platform to ensure that those hesitant in visiting specialists such as sexologists and psychiatrists, all busy professionals and people living in far-flung remote towns can avail quality medical consultation anytime, anywhere," said Satish Kannan, CEO and Co-founder, DocsApp. The doctors practising on DocsApp are MD specialist doctors from top cities and are verified by a three-step process before they are empanelled to start practice on DocsApp. More than 40 percent of the patients who consult the specialists are from rural areas which are outside tier I and II cities.
