Launch of a new online platform for doctors in India

Healthcare tech startup MedPiper Technologies has launched its latest online offering to help physicians find jobs and optimize their workflows.

Since 2019, the company has put health professionals in touch with hospitals and health establishments for vacancies and missions and with pharmacies for partnerships. Its members include more than 65,000 audited healthcare professionals, providing services to approximately 35 healthcare organizations.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT

MConnekt is a web-based platform where physicians can “discover, engage and connect” with digital health platforms and search for offline work opportunities. It also helps them optimize their workflow and working hours. Through a dashboard, users can manage their commitments in real time and discover current job opportunities, salary trends and other related information.

Job discovery also includes counseling opportunities, such as teleconsultation, review and interpretation of medical records, as well as clinical advice on preventive health.

Additionally, the platform offers an online CV generator with predefined templates and the MedPiper community where doctors can interact with each other and participate in online discussions.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT

In a press release, MedPiper noted how expensive and inefficient telehealth has become to manage a clinical workforce and build a nationwide medical consultation infrastructure.

Given this issue, the startup proposed MConnekt which “connects a market of certified clinicians to deliver on-demand consultations without geographic limitations,” said co-founder and CEO Nithin Chandran.

Digital health platforms can also use its API to enable direct connection with verified active physicians across India in real time, eliminating a one-on-one onboarding process. “Existing systems in the country today take a long time to recognize, authorize and verify new practitioners. MConnekt helps make the onboarding process fully transparent and transparent for physicians and hospitals, ”explained MedPiper Co-Founder and CTO, Pranay Suyash.

MARKET OVERVIEW

A similar platform that provides networking opportunities for doctors was introduced in India in July. HealWell24 healthcare solutions provider launched DocsCampus.com which is said to be the nation’s premier online healthcare network. The platform allows physicians to build their professional network, share and access knowledge, and find alumni, mentors and peers. It also provides a space for patients to connect with other patients with similar health concerns and find answers to health questions or help others with their questions.

They signed a memorandum of understanding whereby AFPI will assist AFPI member physicians by providing services such as patient engagement, EMR, telemedicine and a payment solution.
