Tata Indicom now offers medical assistance on mobile

17 Sep

In partnership with Rx Healthcare, Tata Indicom has launched an emergency medical consultation service, “Doctor on Call,” to offer medical assistance to all Tata Indicom and Tata Walky subscribers. The interactive voice responsive service will enable a caller to speak to a doctor, who in turn would enquire about the medical history of the patient such as age, marital status, location, sex etc. And then the doctor would determine the category of the illness – acute (the doctor would suggets some home remedy for instant relief), chronic (the doctor would suggest some preventive measures) and emergency (the doctor would suggest the patient be rushed to the nearest hospital).

Sounds like a social service? Naah, users will be charged Rs 9 per minute of this special call.
