India’s Health Baxis offers free remote health services for students
The company plans to set up over 100 in-school clinics.
India-based digital kids’ healthcare platform Health Basix has tied up with several schools in the Coimbatore district to provide free remote health services to 60,000 students and their families through its app, according to a press release.
The program, kicking off on 1 June, will give students, teachers, and families free access to Health Basix's healthcare offerings. The company aims to relieve the burden of managing a child's health.
All families will be able to use Health Basix’s remote primary care solution for adults and children. If students aren’t feeling well, parents can input their child’s symptoms to help with assessments and can then connect with a doctor online.
If needed, a doctor can provide treatment options, prescriptions, and clear next steps. In addition to free doctor consultation, registered parents will be able to access privileged pricing across different health services in their city.
“We plan to set-up over 100 in-school clinics as the schools reopen to take pediatric healthcare to the place where children spend most of their time,” said Health Baxis founder Swathy Rohit.
