Gurgaon-based health-tech chain Pristyn Care has launched telemedicine and COVID-19 testing services across India. The company has partnered with over 50 laboratories across Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai and Hyderabad to conduct COVID-19 detection tests that are approved by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
The test can be booked on the website or via call after online doctor consultation. Patients can provide samples at their nearest lab or certified phlebotomists can collect them from the patients’ homes. The report will be made available to the patients within 24-48 hours of the sample collection, thereby, helping curb overcrowding at hospitals and clinics, Pristyn said in statement.
The telemedicine platform enables patients to make online consultations to address common queries of cough, cold, fever, aches and pains, etc. and prescribe suitable treatment through online prescriptions. The company has also set up a control room as per the protocols of the WHO and the Ministry of Health for addressing queries related to COVID-19 to help profile high-risk segments of the population. The control room can be contacted through a dedicated helpline number.
“Since people are unable to visit doctors, they resort to either self-diagnosing their symptoms or self-medicating, both of which can be detrimental to their health. From online consultation to getting tested to providing hospitalisation if required, we at Pristyn Care have developed a full stack of healthcare services to serve patients. So, anybody can call our helplines and reach out to our internal team of doctors for consultation,” said Harsimarbir Singh, Co-Founder, Pristyn Care, in a statement.
