Currently operating in Mumbai and Pune, with 4200 doctors on board, the Estonia based digital health consultation provider plans to expand to 20000 docs in six months
Estonia-based tech innovator VIVEO Health announced the seamless expansion of its operations in India. The expansion falls in line with an increased demand due to the COVID-19 pandemic for remote consulting platforms specially designed for medical professionals with an urge to provide a safe environment to care givers and consumers.
Founded in 2017, VIVEO Health is an online digital health consulting destination that helps patients garner access to healthcare providers irrespective of the time and location according to their preference of comfort. As per a release, Estonia was the first country to introduce digital health records globally; along the way, the Nordic country was the first to move the e-prescription world. Estonia is said to have produced the most unicorns per capita in the world.
Commenting on the expansion into the Indian market Raul Kallo, Founder, VIVEO Health said, “ We see India as one of the markets that have a massive need for digital health solutions. With our platform, we can bring medical care to the places where right now, it might be a bit hectic. Additionally, we see massive potential in the Indian tech and pharmaceutical industry. We are here to serve.”
Adding further about the services Prasant Kumar Mohanty, director India Business at VIVEO Health stated, “We have around 4200 doctors on board with us and are hopeful to add 20000 doctors in a span of six months. The current situation prevents patients to seek access to health due to the fear of getting infected with the virus due to overcrowding in hospitals and clinics. Online consultations is a measure to assure people to seek their queries with specialists instead of ignorance on diagnosis.”
According to him, the company is currently operating in two cities, Mumbai and Pune, and is expanding to Bangalore. From early 2021, they reportedly will be establishing offices in Delhi, Chennai, and Hyderabad.
As per a release, VIVEO has a subscription and transaction based model for doctors and has partnered with brands like Stripe for payment getaways and with firms like PharmEasy, SRL Diagnostics to provided additional services to consumers. It is also in talks with insurance companies and hospitals.
Apart from India, VIVEO is currently expanding its operations in Mexico.
