an online doctor consultation platform, which provides an opportunity to
connect with the best doctors promptly, launched MediMetry app. Initially the

this day and age, people seek immediate solutions for everything. Considering
the sedentary lifestyle that Indians lead, patients always have many
health-related queries, which need an instant gratification. However, due to
city traffic and long queues, they have to spend at least two hours in travelling
for a few minutes of consultation. This pushes patients to procrastinate their issues.
Resulting in patients seeking help from Google, which is not always a reliable
source of information. Moreover, 70 % of the health queries can be solved
through online consultation. Keeping this in mind, we launched the MediMetry
app”; said Krishan Tyagi, Co-Founder and CEO, MediMetry.

cities to consult the sexologists and psychiatrists in private sans any social
stigma, but also helps care seekers from tier 2 cities who have access to
technology but limited or no access to specialist doctors.” He added.
users can openly ask health-related queries on a public forum for a free doctor
consultation and doctors can give an insight on how to proceed with solving the
issue. Later, users can go for one-on-one private consultations, for which patients
are connected to the doctors within 30 minutes of posting the request. They can
share their previous reports and health history securely and privately with the
diagnostic market and Medicine e-commerce are the fastest growing segments of the
modern healthcare and MediMetry aims to integrate all of them on our platform
to provide an end to end holistic user experience”; said Dr. Bhawana Tyagi,
