Zoctr is participating in the World’s Largest FREE Medical Camp which is likely to create a GUINESS WORLD RECORD of sorts. The Medical Camp is organized by RK HIV/AIDS Research & Care Centre comprising of 200,000 Patients, 5,000 Doctors, 10,000 Paramedical Staff and 15,000 Volunteers and will be held on Sunday, 28th Feb, 2016 at BSNL Grounds in Santacruz (W), Mumbai.
Mumbai is home to one of the largest slum populations in the world and has poor access to proper healthcare facilities, high incidences of communicable as well as non-communicable diseases and low socio-economic income. In order to address all the above issues RK HIV/AIDS Research and Care Centre which has several Senior Doctors and Heads of Departments as part of a social initiative, has conceptualised this camp. Zoctr, as one of the Strategic Healthcare Partners will be present at the medical camp and support the same with 40+ Volunteers who will provide specialized support during the camp and further make patients aware of the home health.
With the release of the www.zoctr.com portal which offers integrated Home Health services under one roof to patients and has rich functionality including Dynamic Doctor, Nurse/Attendant & Physiotherapist Appointment Booking, Electronic Health Record, Risk Profiling and Online Payment, this event should create a huge brand visibility for Zoctr and further reinforce its commitment to creating a tangible social impact.
