COVID-19: MeCure engages over 10, 000 doctors


Access to quality healthcare has been identified as the most important need, not just for Nigerians but citizens of every country in the world, with telemedicine, considered as an effective means to treat patients during this COVID-19 pandemic.

Product Manager, MeCure Smart, Mr. Ajinkya Shelar who disclosed
this in a statement yesterday, said the pandemic has forced consumers to show an overwhelming interest in placing the health and safety of their
families first and are adopting innovative ways to interact at these
unprecedented times.
  “With the rising cases of the Coronavirus pandemic, MeCure Smart in partnership with HelloDocApp has launched an online consultation
platform that brings over 10,000 doctors to provide quality remote
healthcare services to Nigerians…”


“As businesses continue to grapple in these unprecedented times, if
there is one thing needed more than anything else to keep going, its
innovation and MeCure Smart seems to be innovating in the right
   “The demand for telemedicine has picked up exponentially ever since
the pandemic took over. The change in behaviour has been nothing short
of dramatic. Now, patients prefer remote consultations and visit
clinics only if absolutely necessary for tests.

This allows both the
doctors and patients a very safe and effective environment to manage
The product manager said the partnership will allow MeCure Smart
app to onboard more than 4,000 doctors across every specialty ranging
from General Physicians to even Neurosurgeons, adding that “we intend
to further expand it to up to 10,000+ doctors by end of 2020.
    “Each doctor on the platform has a verified Medical and Dental
Council of Nigeria (MDCN) certificate and is vetted through a rigorous
background check. We hope that through this initiative anyone in
Nigeria will immediately have access to quality and affordable
healthcare that is also COVID safe.” He added.
