Shaadi.com has partnered with MediBuddy-DocsApp to enable all its employees’ online consultation with health specialists and MD doctors. For the employees, it is a quick and easy way to cater to their own and their family members’ healthcare needs. Shaadi.com has been a front runner in availing new-age healthcare solutions like online doctor consultation for its employees across the nation.
P Ganesan, Vice President – HR, Shaadi.com, said, “In the current lockdown scenario, getting medical assistance has been most challenging for our employees. And as our employees are our biggest asset, we at Shaadi.com are committed to assisting them in whatever way possible. With MediBuddy-DocsApp, our employees from across the country can avail medical assistance instantly through a phone call. It solves the problem of physical availability of doctors and we are happy to partner with them for this service.”
The pandemic has caused upheaval across many aspects of daily life. With health taking center stage, companies, both large and small, are increasing their focus on employee health. The COVID-19 outbreak has pushed employers to focus on employee health and many organizations, like Shaadi.com, are enabling services that go beyond hospitalization benefits and include solutions like telemedicine.
As Covid-19 cases continue to rise in India, one of the major problems faced by the general public is easy to access to doctors. With doctors being frontline warriors and an increasing number of healthcare professionals also contracting the virus, telemedicine has come in to address general healthcare needs. Through telemedicine, as doctor consultation takes place over the phone and video calls, servicing a large number of individuals, across a geographical spread, is not a problem. The growing popularity and acceptance of this form of healthcare is established by the fact that MediBuddy-DocsApp has seen an increase of 60% in people opting for online doctor consultations, across various specialties.
“With our healthcare platform, MediBuddy-DocsApp has been constantly striving to make quality medical assistance available to the majority of the public. With the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for a quick, easy, and efficient way of medical consultation is vital. Through MediBuddy-DocsApp, we aim at making healthcare support accessible to our customers across all specialities at a tap away.”, said Mr. Satish Kannan, Co-founder & CEO, MediBuddy-DocsApp.
The MediBuddy-DocsApp platform enables employees to come online and avail healthcare services anytime they want for the entire family. It gives them the comfort to consult across 18 departments, for all healthcare-related issues no matter how minor or major. The acceptance and relevance of the platform and the service is reflected in the fact that over 66% of employees who have access to MediBuddy-DocsApp Gold have taken consultation for their family members as well.
The MediBuddy-DocsApp platform offers multiple packages for organisations to choose from according to their requirements. From bulk consultations, COVID testing to assisting organizations in ensuring the complete safety of employees and workplaces with MediClinic. The most opted healthcare package by organizations is MediBuddy Gold.
