In an attempt to continue to provide essential medical services and facilities to pregnant women and newborns during the lockdown, the hospital also recently launched teleconsultation services allowing patients to consult doctors from their homes via video. In case a doctor medicines, the  patients can book the medicines through the ‘It’s our baby’ app. An automatic message is sent to the Cloudnine pharmacy once the medicines are prescribed. The pharmacy then calls and enquiries with the patients on the medical requirements. Upon confirmation, a payment link is sent to the customer.

Once paid, Dunzo initiates deliveries across cities and ensures patients get the urgent aid they require conveniently.

Speaking about the tie-up Raviganesh Venkataraman, CEO, Cloudnine Group of Hospitals says “Our customer is basically a millennial and they are already accustomed to a digital medium in virtually every aspect of their lives. Technology is something that touches our customer's life and every single aspect of their pregnancy journey – before & after.

In these unprecedented times of COVID 19, while it is extremely essential to stay in touch with the doctor, it is equally important to ensure a continuous supply of medicines. Our collaboration with Dunzo for our customers shall enable people to stay home by ensuring the delivery of the right medicines at the right time at their doorstep”.
