This advanced Tele Clinic, driven by Artificial Intelligence, is strategically positioned to address the healthcare needs of far-flung regions where conventional facilities are either absent or insufficient. Dr Singh emphasised that “Aarogya” operates on a cutting-edge methodology, allowing patients to articulate their health concerns in their native language, with the AI doctor comprehending and responding in the same language.

Dr Jitendra Singh elaborated on the seamless process, stating that after the initial consultation, patients are connected to leading super specialists across the country, thanks to tie-ups with prominent hospitals. The telemedicine hospital conducts comprehensive body-profiling and investigations, providing patients with prescriptions within 40 to 50 minutes, and all treatments are delivered free of cost.

Dr Jitendra Singh urged the local community to embrace this transformative healthcare facility, highlighting that this super-speciality hospital is bringing doctors directly to their doorsteps, marking a significant stride in leveraging technology for inclusive healthcare.
