About the launch of the telemedicine app of UPES named Spotdoc. The students felt that although their telemedicine apps available in the market they do not showcase many required features. There is no option for heart rate monitoring on those apps. Therefore they developed an app that can track all the required details of the patient. People can consult a doctor online and receive an e-prescription. Also establishing that not all the medicines are available in nearby medical stores. Doctors will be prescribed on the basis of medicines that are available near his or her region. To combat this problem they have added an online order feature where people can order medicines online. It is saying that the transportation system has been slowed down and online order taking more time than ever before. The app has also considered this problem and to combat this problem, the app has come up with the solution that the medicines will be delivered from the nearest medical shop from the patient. This helps in reaching out to quality care in the least amount of time. Since many doctors and hospitals are not accepting any patients other than COVID-19. The app postdoc is expected to release by the end of the year.
