The world leader in Homeopathy, Dr. Batra’s®, known for bringing about pioneering revolutions in the field, opened its computerised clinic in 1982, followed by the Cyber Clinic in 1996 and the Tele-Homeopathy Clinic in 2008. mHealth is the recent new age addition to the Dr. Batra’s® credentials that will reach out to one of the world’s largest and fastest growing communities of mobile users, effectively using this medium to provide prompt healthcare access to over 40 crore mobile users.

mHealth, the first-of-its kind launch to be initiated by a homeopathic organization in India, highlights the innovative application of technology to make healthcare solutions available to multitudes at the touch of a button. One of the leading features of this WAP enabled service is free consultation to any mobile user, irrespective of whether he/she is a patient of Dr. Batra’s®.

This quick and efficient online service would include multiple facilities at the same time such as registration, case history in brief, online chat with doctors for medical queries, appointment requests, and most importantly even for commencing or renewing treatment plans. The patients can use the online chat service from 9 am to 9 pm and can also SMS 56767 or call on the toll free number, 1800-290-6767, for an offline consultation. Patients can also get their medicines online for one week’s prescription.

Speaking on the launch of mHealth, Dr. Vishal Verenkar – Sr. Consultant & City Head, Karnataka stated, “mHealth is a decision that we have consciously taken to offer greater accessibility to a larger patient community in India. This service targets people who have extremely hectic schedules as well as the general public. The services are currently available in English and we are planning to soon launch it in Hindi as well. The enterprise makes sure that a qualified and recognised doctor is always available when required. It has been our strong belief that the innovative use of advanced technologies can change people’s outlook towards Homeopathy in India.

Over the past 27 years, Dr. Batra’s® has brought about a paradigm shift in the perceptions of people towards Homeopathy, successfully creating acceptance for this healing system’s holistic approach that treats the individual rather than the disease.
