Last year we reported that pinkWhale, an e-Health company announced an online health service in India called ‘Call a Doc’. Now there is another new service called ‘Wellness World‘ which is a new health tool introduced by handygo and Uninor in India.
Wellness World is all set to use IVR and SMS platform to provide relevant and valuable health information to all the Uninor subscribers. Health information such as Heart Care, Women’s Health, Diet and Nutrition, Pain management, HIV/STD’s, Stress, Love, Relationship, Adolescent issues, etc. This pan service in India is available in Hindi and English. To subscribe this service Uninor subscribers need to dial a code – 522770. For IVR version- Customers can opt for subscription pack of Rs. 30 for 7 days which will entitle them to 30/7 free minutes. Or a simple SMS at Rs. 30/7 for 30/7 days will enable them to receive 2/1 SMS alerts per day. handygo Technologies have partnered with several hospitals like VIMHANS, GM Modi, Jaipur Golden Hospital, etc to ensure the information provided is relevant, accurate and upto date.
We had earlier reported about a platform that solves all the health problem called MediAngels and we feel such services delivered through online media are beneficial to one and all. Introduction of Wellness World can be a good news for rural village people of India as these service is provided on mobile which has a good penetration in rural areas as well.
