Bahraini startup Doctori has officially launched its telemedicine platform across GCC. The timing of the launch couldn’t have been better given that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has rendered patients across the region unable to continue with their non-urgent, but important health checkups.
The platform deploys an AI-equipped interface that patients can use to connect to a doctor and receive medical advice. Better yet, Doctori was designed to be a cost-effective platform that anyone can use without digging a hole in their pockets.
It only charges BHD 5 per consultation, making it one of the most affordable and secure alternatives to in-person doctor visits.
Speaking on the occasion, Co-Founder of Doctori Ahmed Alawadhi, said: “I am happy to announce that Bahraini startup Doctori has just launched its services in the GCC. We are currently providing patients with video consultation services that allow them to speak to doctors from all over. We have signed with a large number of hospitals and clinics and are working closely with the Ministry of Health in the Kingdom of Bahrain to tackle COVID-19.”
He further added that the company is now planning on expanding its reach to the MENA region.
Doctori is also in talks with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Society for Telemedicine & eHealth to extend its services to “less-fortunate countries.”
