Bringing Doctors Online During a Pandemic -The Asian Age


The current doctor-patient ratio in Bangladesh is only 5.26 per 10,000 population, which places the country at the second position from the bottom, among the South Asian countries, according to the WHO. And to fill this gap, Shohoz introduced a technology empowered solution for the healthcare sector, "Shohoz Health", with over 150 specialized doctors and over 20 medical specializations in the country.
 
Bangladesh is no exception to the way Covid-19 has spread worldwide. Many people are being infected every day. That's why the government has been forced to take a decision like lockdown to reduce the rate of infection. Like in many countries around the world, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused an unprecedented impact on essential health services in Bangladesh, leading to a drastic reduction in utilization of the major essential health services across all levels of health systems.

Shohoz's?state-of-the-art digital healthcare app allows users to access specialized doctors through video-based affordable consultation from anywhere in Bangladesh. To use this facility, users have to log in to the app and select a specialization category from the list of doctors/ consultants to book an appointment. Shohoz Health's helpful community engagement team helps each patient promptly to navigate and access the video consultations every step of the way. Besides this feature, it also allows users to receive a prescription along medicine delivery from different local pharmacies, all under the?Shohoz?SuperApp. At this time of Covid-19, there is no longer need to go to the chamber at risk, for doctor's advice. Through these services, people will get the facility to consult with hundreds of doctors of different specialties at?Shohoz?Health and receive medicine delivery using the Shohoz app seamlessly.
