Healthcare is a very essential part of our lives, yet the healthcare experience in our country is not as smooth as it should be. Today when we can order food, book tickets, buy shoes at a click of a button, yet healthcare remains disconnected. When it comes to healthcare, we still maintain files of medical reports, we still have to manually search for our medical records when we need them, we still don’t exactly know what exactly is happening to us , we don’t know what regular checkups we are supposed to do and we don’t know what is the health trend in our neighbourhood. This list goes on ! Now imagine a world where all information we needed to know about your health was only a click away ! That is exactly what guys at LiveHealth are trying to achieve.
The vision of Livehealth is very simple – that of a better healthcare ! LiveHealth is currently working with healthcare providers and making the healthcare experience for the customer as simple as : Submit your test sample. Rest everything is taken care by LiveHealth! LiveHealth will then provide you with your medical records , get you finer details about the medical report like which of the test results are critical which are normal. LiveHealth uses simple colour indicator which makes it easy for the patient to understand . It also segregate test result based on gender, as the reference ranges for male and female are sometimes different. Livehealth basically provides its users with 3 things management and maintenance of medical records (also, share securely with your trusted people), a connect with your respective healthcare provider and best deals from your health provider.
