Estonia based integrated tele-health innovator and digital health consultation provider VIVEO Health has announced the launch of its India chapter. The move is a response to the rising demand for remote consulting via technology platforms that ensures socially distanced safety to both patient and care giver in the times of the raging COVID-19 pandemic. Setting foot in Mumbai and Pune now to start with, VIVEO Health is slated to enter Bengaluru soon, and should be in the cities of Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad by early 2021

 

BORN IN A DIGITAL LAND

It is no co-incidence that VIVEO Health is from Estonia – a nation whose economy & culture is highly digitized and sports the largest number of unicorns (per capital) in the world. Estonia was the first country to introduce digital health records and disrupt the e-prescription world. It is this fertile land of ideas and innovation that provided the cradle for VIVEO Health’s birth in 2017. 

 

READY FOR INDIA

In India, the company aims to take forward its global mission of holistically empowering the healthcare terrain with seamless, secure and convenient digital healthcare solutions that straddle high demand areas such as telemedicine and telehealth consultations, e-prescriptions, notes, summery and treatment plans.

TRANSFORMING HEALTHCARE END-TO-END

VIVEO Health’s model is designed to benefit both sides of the patient-caregiver spectrum. At the patient side, it brings the safety of contact-less communication with experts. It also turns diagnosis and treatment more accessible and affordable in remote areas, thanks to India’s fast growing digital networks. At the practitioner side, the brand’s multi-faceted service platter helps smoothen workflow practices, enables expansion of market & patient base, and empowers businesses to conduct transactions over a secure and hassle-free platform. Doctors and caregivers are not charged by the company - instead, they have the choice of opting for either a subscription based model or a transaction based one.

Our convenient and flexible innovations can finally bring the Haves and Have-nots on a common platform. With growing mobile usage and internet penetration across the length and breadth of the country, we aim to cover vast, hitherto-unaddressed demographics and regions. This will make medical care truly democratic and healthcare truly inclusive. India’s tech and pharma sectors are on the threshold of a massive explosion, and that can only help our mission. Yes, the current pandemic situation will pose a challenge, but we are confident emerging triumphant and achieving the goals we have set for our India journey. I urge healthcare forums like voiceofhealthcare to support the cause and spread the word.”
