This program simplifies the process of hospitals by increasing interoperability within the health ecosystem. Doctors will have easy access to the old medical records of patients and it will allow one to get digital lab reports, prescriptions, and diagnoses from verified doctors.

The scheme will aid people living in remote areas get access to better medical facilities by connecting them to specialized doctors and hospitals. The online platform will provide easy access for patients to search the service provider online, consult their doctors, and further order their medicines online.
