MetroMedi: One-Stop Solution For All The Healthcare Needs:- The COVID-19 pandemic turned out to be a new threat for the mankind. It shattered all the businesses and the whole world is now under a huge financial crunch. The coronavirus is also transforming the businesses. Most of the pharmacies are not turning into operational models for a wider reach. MetroMedi is now the new one-stop health store and omnichannel pharmacy. Maruthi Medisetti, the CEO of MetroMedi shares much information about filling the gaps in the field of pharmacy in tier-three and tier-two cities. Here are the excerpts:
MetroMedi is a startup that is built to deliver the medicines down to your home. The patients share the prescription through WhatsApp and the medicines are delivered to their doorstep by our staff. Customers do not have multiple options like in metros and our job is to fill in the gap in the last-mile health care services.
MetroMedi will soon open its health store business in all the cities where the online delivery facility is available. We are keen to develop customer loyalty and we are in plans to expand our healthcare services like health check-ups. We are joining hands with SRL Diagnostics and Doctor C. We are aiming to turn out the one-stop solution for all the health needs.
We are rolling out the MetroMedi app on April 25th and will be available to serve in tier-two and tier-three cities. We offer doctor's consultation through the app instead of traveling to 60 km to visit a specialist. We are aiming at making healthcare affordable and accessible.
COVID-19 is making everyone restrict to their homes. The people suffering from other ailments cannot visit the doctors. MetroMedi makes healthcare accessible. We are making the top doctors in their region available on a phone or video call at half of the costs.
It took two weeks for the app to be developed and we are in plans for a phase-wise launch. We are launching it for a bunch of customers this week. MetroMedi app will be available for the public in the next couple of weeks. Pharmacies, doctors and patients are connected right through MetroMedi.
We signed 50 doctors and some of them are in talks to come on to the board from various specializations. We are verifying the identity of the doctors thoroughly based on the guidelines that are issued on the basis of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR). All their credentials will be displayed.
Medical professionals with their hands full of experience are roped in for ENT, General Medicine, gynecology and other fields. All our in-house staff are provided with masks, gloves and sanitizers in this coronavirus season. The future model of medicine is online pharmacies. You will not come across crowded medical shops in the coming future.
MetroMedi is being launched in regional languages. All the doctors will be available to speak the regional language. MetroMedi will be launched via Instagram, TikTok and Twitter after we partner with some celebrities to get a wide reach.
We are also offering inaugural discounts as a part of the launch. With ample experience in retail pharmacy, we are working with our trusted partners. MetroMedi is making sure that we supply branded medicines and ventured with the top three distributors of every city in which MetroMedi turns operational.
