Benefits For Patient
An app like this is designed to help PATIENTS to connect to SPECIALIST DOCTOR for their illness or problem. Today, in the era of technology, everyone wants the best treatment, and rightly so. This Best treatment can usually only be given by Specialist Doctors. The specialist doctors are those who are expert of certain systems and illnesses of your body. They have studied beyond the graduation (MBBS) and done their post- graduation (MD, MS, DNB, DM, MCH, PG diploma etc.) in their specialty.
Through this app, we have tried to connect you to the SPECIALIST DOCTORS (Refer above) based on your SYMPTOMS. You just have to identify your key 1 symptom (Problem) and click. We will make available to you specialist within hardly any time for video connect. The probability of getting connected to a correct specialist is very high. In case a specialist (after you reach the hospital and after examining you) feels that other doctors are also needed you will be directed accordingly . If the specialist is by any chance not available; the call will get connected with our 24×7 call center to help you get connected to the specialist.
The app is designed for all types of medical advices. VIDEO CALL is better than audio call and chats. Since you will be SEEN (by Video call) by the SPECIALIST DOCTOR (instead of General practitioner), the doctor will have a better idea about your condition. But at the same time there will be some occasions when an accurate judgment cannot be made by the doctor unless He / She examines you.
The idea behind making this app is that any patient should reach the CORRECT SPECIALIST DOCTOR directly in the shortest span of time. Today, India is facing the problem of QUACKS (unqualified people posing as doctors). We don’t want you to fall in their hands.
You are most likely to get the best treatment if you reach the CORRECT doctor. The app tries to provide a platform for the same. It will not only lead to better treatment and cure rate, it is likely to decrease your expense also because you will not go through a RED TAPEISM kind of system which delays correct treatment to the patient.
This app decreases Hospital hopping at the time of crisis which leads to loss of money, energy and decline of health. We believe this app is one of the best things to happen to Indian health care which is chaotic and directionless.

Benefits Of Doctors
Namaste Health Platform has been conceptualised by the wisdom of senior medical practitioners and their selfless care for the patients. The app tries to make the doctor-patient- hospital interface more transparent and open. It ensures that the specialists become the !st point of contact for the patients so that the patient gets cured early and the specialists also do not have to deal with complicated patients especially those who have been treated before . The symptom based algorithm comes closest to it.
There are various other features which give good experience to the doctors apart from the transparency. The doctor-patient- hospital connect system will ensure that the hospital is well prepared to receive the patient when the patient reaches the hospital , especially in emergency. This will decrease the frustration of the doctor as well as the patient.
All the conversation is recorded. So there is no ambiguity
There is an SOS button for the doctor where both the medical distress of a doctor and VIOLENCE ON DOCTOR can raise a silent SOS broadcast for help
The doctors can make themselves AVAILABLE & UNAVAILABLE as per their convenience
The doctors can see the medical records of the patient.
