MediSage, a digital engagement platform for doctors, announced that it has been able to engage with over 2.2 lakh rural doctors online.
These doctors are able to access the latest medical information which helps them in patient care, Medisage added. It further stated that it is in the process of launching more clinical support tools that will help doctors engage with patients in their care journey.
Cases ranging from of goitre, to skin disorders to lung diseases, are among the wide variety of patients seen by doctors in rural India making their task difficult, the company stated.
“High-quality care can be delivered if doctors are equipped with the right set of treatment information. With over 2 lakh doctors now accessing the platform in rural India, we believe we are one step closer to solving the problem of information asymmetry,” said Anurag Dhingra, Co-founder, MediSage.
“Rural markets have more general practitioners than Tier-2/5/6 cities. Their challenge is they have limited information, yet handle serious cases as heart failure, diabetes and cancer,” said Abhishek Ghosh, Co-founder & Director, Medisage.
