Abstract

Revolutionizing access to healthcare through Tech

As part of our Accelerator program VFX+ we have invested in a company called MediConnect. Mediconnect is revolutionizing the healthcare landscape of Pakistan. They have a number of products and solutions that are changing the way patients and doctors interact. www.mydoctor.pk is one of the services that has been started by this company.

Through MyDoctor.pk patients can search, access, review and book appointments with the right doctor for their needs. Through this online service patients can find validated medical specialists, explore their credentials and see reviews about them before making a decision whether to book an appointment with that doctor or not. At the same time this service makes appointment booking and management very easy on both the patient’s and doctor’s sides. Doctors, clinics and hospitals get an OPD management system along with an Electronic Medical Records system that can help them maintain the appointments and patient records. The solution offers medicine ordering, lab tests at home and telemedicine features as well.

These services are available through a number of products from MediConnect that are available on web and mobile devices.

In the presentation I will talk about this in detail and walk you through some of their products. I will then briefly touch upon our Accelerator program, VF Accelerator Plus, that is partnering and funding such startups that are changing the landscape of Pakistan through Tech.
