Through the partnership, any patient currently exhibiting symptoms or curious about a medical condition has free access to 100% medically verified and fact-checked information, along with the Healthily's Smart Symptom Checker.

Even members can use their Even membership to consult with Even doctors to have a focused conversation with medical professionals and kickstart their guided care.

"Self-diagnosis is a huge problem and can aggravate a medical condition. But we also understand that people find comfort in picking up their phones and looking for information. We wanted to, both, tackle the adverse effects of this phenomenon and empower users to make informed decisions about their health. Our partnership with Healthily allows us to provide the citizens of India the best of both worlds," Matilde Giglio, Co-founder of Even Healthcare, said.
