CallDoc App

Delhi Government is pleased to collaborate with the 'CallDoc' app to offer free online medical consultations to the people of Delhi 24x7. This will save the physical travel difficulties for frequent OPD visits, particularly for senior citizens. We're proud of the more than 100 Delhi doctors who offer their services through this app for free, "Jain said. The doctors include those affiliated with the Delhi Medical Council, as well as doctors from the University College of Medical Sciences (UCMS) of Delhi Government and Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC).

The coronavirus outbreak has put a lot of pressure on the global healthcare system, including Delhi. The Covid-19 outbreak has made it impossible for people to visit hospitals and doctors for non-emergency medical conditions, with major hospitals being branded as 'Covid-19 approved' hospitals. The CallDoc app will support people in these cases, while at the same time reducing the risk of the dreaded virus being spread in hospitals and clinics. CallDoc is a cloud-based platform that Oncall Medicare Pvt provides. Ltd. to provide better and quicker healthcare to people at any time and location convenient to them.

By using this mobile app, the user can connect to a doctor through video or audio or chat and get the consultation over the phone, "the Health Department said. It added that patients could upload their test reports to doctors for review via the mobile application.

Upon consultation, the doctors can upload prescriptions on the app. You can download the CallDoc app from both the Google Play Store and ioS store. The patient must pick the doctor on the basis of name and specialty after downloading, and state the intent of the consultation.

We at Oncall Medicare are extremely pleased to work with the Government of Delhi. Our services, together with the Delhi government's well-laid network, will be able to produce positive results and provide relief to the general public and all stakeholders," said Arun Dagar, CallDoc app's founder and chief executive.
