Omnicuris has introduced a new digital platform called ‘OC Connect’ to help doctors better engage with patients at a time of a global pandemic and improve the much-needed flow of credible information.

The app allows doctors to perform multiple functions using a single digital platform including obtaining online upskilling modules, offering tele-consultations and engaging patients with information to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

With the COVID-19 outbreak grounding everyone, healthcare systems are looking for better ways to address the diverse needs of patients while giving doctors access to the latest information about the impact of the pandemic on their specialties. Omnicuris’s new digital platform is aimed at filling this void and enabling doctors to establish a better connection with their fraternity as well as their patients.

“The global situation and our collective understanding of the novel coronavirus is evolving continually. Given the fact that this is a novel virus, even doctors around the world are learning new things every day about the disease and approaches to its treatment. Doctors working in different specialties are also eager to understand the approaches needed to better care for their patients. Apart from this, the doctor-patient relationship has also turned digital in this crisis with tele-consultations becoming the new norm. Our new product aims to address multiple requirements emanating from this crisis and improve doctor-patient connection as well as the flow of information,” said Savitha Kuttan, CEO, Omnicuris.

“Doctors can use our application not only to upskill themselves by enrolling themselves in CMEs and getting the latest information about the evolving situation from their fraternity, they can also improve their engagement with their patients. Apart from virtual consultations to stay connected with their patient, doctors can also use this app to share valuable information with their patients,” added Kuttan.
