Most individuals can recount consulting their doctor on a phone or using a network or video links like Facetime, WhatsApp, or Zoom at some point. It has been prevalent for a while now and is not a new concept in India. Nevertheless, it is not a sustainable mode of consultation at a scale that India needs, mainly due to the lack of a proper teleconsultation platform and modularity of patients’ data.

There are thousands of health care apps available for people. Some related to appointments and medicines, some related to mental health or fitness, or teleconsultation. Numerous wellness apps for various purposes. But people get confused when it comes to choosing the right app for themselves.
