Meddo, India’s largest out-patient care network in partnership with Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) approved labs has started booking for COVID-19 (RT-PCR) testing in Delhi NCR.
Meddo will enable patients to book COVID-19 tests on its website, app as well as through the dedicated support system. The pricing of the test will be Rs. 4,500 as mandated by the government.
Patients will be required to register on the platform, and have to submit the requisite documents such as doctor prescription, Patient proforma TRF, government and other documents listed here.
The Gurugram based start-up is aggressively ramping up to launch at-home medicine delivery and commence sale of Rapid Testing Kit for COVID-19. The rapid test kits will allow for an enhanced screening analysis and guide faster treatment decisions. The testing kit will generate results in 15 to 20 minutes.
The platform also offers a recently launched preliminary intervention solution including teleconsult with doctors and AI enabled risk analysis solution. Must the patients with mild, moderate or serious symptoms want to check for being possibly at risk, they can do so on the website, patient app and COVID information page.
Speaking on the initiatives taken by the start-up, Saurabh Kochhar, co-founder, Meddo says “We have built a one stop platform for our user base to learn and educate themselves about the virus, have targeted innovations to deploy tools like tele, video consult, symptom checker and sample booking to help provide a seamless experience. We make zero to negative margins on the tests at the capped pricing of Rs. 4,500 but we decided to go ahead with the offering as faster and extensive testing is the only way to control the spread of the virus. To that effect, we would also be soon launching rapid test kits that would be cheaper and much faster to administer.”
In order to control panic and fear around COVID-19 and the increasing infections, Meddo has also created a dedicated website where all the verified information about the coronavirus can be found, including the symptoms, myths, FAQs on testing in India and more. In an another effort to extend ease to people during lockdown, Meddo has also released a Youtube campaign “SafeQuarantineWithMeddo” which offers tips and general advise on maintaining sanity and safety by some of the best doctors covering categories like pregnant women and higher risk categories.
