The year 2020-2021 has consistently challenged the healthcare industry with rising healthcare costs and unfulfilled virtual consultations. In a country like India, where the doctor-to-patient ratio is 1: 1000, taking care of all patient issues at the time of a global pandemic becomes a tedious task.

It delivers patient-centric services through a comprehensive set of location-based digital solutions and eliminates widespread fragmentation of care.

How with the integration of AI and IoMT is the app poised to change the face of healthcare in India?
Docty was one of the first to adopt IoMT with the AI component built into its platform. The application uses AI very effectively to eliminate the wait time for the initial diagnosis thanks to its “Docty Symptom Checker”, which offers an accuracy of 94%. With this, patients can choose a personalized GP through Docty. In addition, the app complies with HL7 security standards and regulates end-to-end encryption, which has resulted in a noticeable increase in the number of patients using Docty for fields such as physiotherapy, gynecology and psychiatry, in particular especially during the time of the pandemic.
