Apollo 24|7 - the digital Arm of the Apollo Hospitals Group has joined hands with Microsoft India to launch Enterprise Solution which will be utilised by the organisations to provide their employees an access to a holistic health and wellness solution within the Microsoft work suite.
The Enterprise Solution is tested in a pilot programme for Microsoft India employees for a period of three months.
As a part of the pilot programme, 5,000 Microsoft employees got the access on this enterprise platform and over 50% of them chose to require virtual consultations with an Apollo doctor during the months of April-June. Across the Apollo network, each of the registered Microsoft employees had access to over 7,000 doctors and specialists.
Amid the impending fear of the third wave of COVID, organisations have been increasingly on the lookout for digital healthcare solutions to support their employees and families. Now, with just a click of the button a user has access to medical tele-consultation, vaccine booking, pharmacy, diagnostic tests, electronic health records, and wellness programmes.
“Healthcare is evolving to meet the immediate and future demands during the global health crisis. With the advancements in technology, people across the globe are embracing digital healthcare solutions. Apollo 24|7 has been developed to provide access to quality care to everyone. We are excited to partner with Microsoft during this pandemic to support organizations for employee wellbeing,” CTO of Apollo 24|7, Madhu Aravind said.
Informing about the association, Microsoft's Executive Director, Strategic Growth, Meetul Patel said, “In today's hybrid work environment, organizations are increasingly looking to make access to wellness resources easier for their employees. Our partnership with Apollo has helped bring this access right into the flow-of -work by making resources easy to access from within Microsoft Teams which serves in so many ways as the “Office” in the emerging work environment.”
The platform allows the user to consult an Apollo Doctor within 15 minutes of requesting a consult; order medicines from the wide network of Apollo Pharmacies; and request for sample collection from home for prescribed diagnostic tests within Microsoft Teams itself.
