Medical App to the Rescue

An apple a day apparently keeps the doctor away. Sometimes despite having taken care of your health by eating the right thing at the right time, you fall ill. At times such as these, you wonder what could have been done to not have been in that situation ever.

While you can do so many things to protect yourself from ailments, immunity is something that cannot be taken for granted. Keeping your health in mind and trying to rid you from the tension, trauma and other adjectives related to pain that you undergo during this phase, getting you back into action becomes the need of the hour.

Towards making this experience less distressing Danvanthiri Medical Tourism, a start-up venture initiative of Maleshaa Inc., has launched the first of its kind Healthcare App that hosts a whole lot of features apart from just booking a doctor’s appointment.

The App helps you take care of yourself and your loved ones, all at the click of a button. From booking a doctor’s appointment to taking tests at diagnostic centres, from ordering medicines online at pharmacies to getting quotations from hospitals to undergo a surgery, you name it and they have it. They have special features of getting quotes from diagnostic centres and hospitals where you can compare quotes and then choose the service thus making an informed decision.

In short, this free App is technology entwined into the healthcare industry.

Let’s take a look at how a common user can be benefitted by the various features this App has got:

You can search for verified doctors specialised in Allopathy, Ayurveda, Unani, Siddha, Homeopathy etc. Both the doctor and the patient save time through this organised booking system which is managed efficiently. This also gives the user freedom from those long hours of wait in the clinic lobby.

This facility helps users who need to undergo planned surgeries or treatments. You can receive quotations from hospitals of your choice and based on the facilities available in each hospital you can choose the one that fits the bill.

After pressing the Save Me button, the patient co-ordinator is notified and comes with an ambulance at your door-step after understanding the intensity of your medical condition.

Danvanthiri joins the Organ Donation bandwagon

Danvanthiri executed its first branding awareness promotion event, ‘Blitz’ in Coimbatore on the occasion of World Heart Day (29th September 2016). The core objective of this event was to create awareness among people about Organ Donation and the services of the Danvanthiri App.

A team of Danvanthiri employees including the co-founders Mr. Prabakaran and Mr. Sivachenduran split into two sets – one team at Raheja Enclave and the other near RK Photo Shop at 5.30 am and distributed leaflets about organ donation and highlighted the features of the Danvanthiri app. This was done to educate the residents living around Race Course road who were out for a walk or were getting their daily dose of fresh air while jogging and exercising. The team strutted placards with a message “Have a Heart, Become a Donor”.

As many as 1500 leaflets were distributed and more than 200 curious passersby enquired about the App and its services. They seemed delighted to know that awareness about Organ Donation was being created. The team was also privileged to meet some people who had already pledged their organs and in turn suggested contact details of their friends and relatives who would donate their organs for this noble deed. The passersby appreciated the effort and complimented the effort.

Danvanthiri organised Happy Streets, another Organ Donation awareness event on NSR road on 2nd October on the renowned Car-Free Sunday event, an initiative of The Hindu association with Coimbatore Corporation and city traffic police.
Pedestrians took over the roads and free from the fear of being knocked down by vehicles or sound pollution caused due to the constant honking. The participants used the space as they liked as the police cordoned off the stretch for vehicular movement.

The initiative aims at bringing in people from all walks of life to gather and enjoy the serene and car-free roads and help their lungs breathe by involving themselves in physical activities like walking, jogging, cycling, playing, relaxing and meeting friends. Danvanthiri organised a street dance performance that was enjoyed by the onlookers. Children carrying balloons chanted messages “Have a heart, become a donor”. This initiative was well accepted by the participants of the event.
