KARACHI: When coronavirus is prowling to take on Pakistanis, technology of telemedicine can play a great role in acting as an enabler to help many patients in need.

Globally telemedicine is being used right now by many doctors to connect to patients who can be treated at home for primary care ailments. In Pakistan, a Telemedicine company, run by two female doctors, Dr Sara Saeed and Dr Iffat Zafar, is trying to help, says a press release. Sehat Kahani is a telemedicine platform that connects female doctors to patients in need using telemedicine using a network of e-clinics in low income communities and via a mobile application for corporates and consumers.

Sehat Kahani has partnered with Digital Pakistan led by Tania Aidrus to combat coronavirus using The Sehat Kahani Telemedicine App. This App will connect any patient who is in need of advice, counselling and education on Covid19 to qualified PMDC licensed female doctors 24/7.This service is free for users for three months so that maximum patients can connect to a female doctor while maintaining social distancing, isolation and quarantine. Tania Aidrus, CEO Digital Pakistan, has appreciated Sehat Kahani’s effort and has called out to more telemedicine providers to join the cause.
