21 Sep, 2016 – Taking this notion of 24/7 healthcare a notch higher, Apollo Hospitals recently launched its consolidated online healthcare platform – Ask Apollo. Built around the Group’s unique approach and vision towards patient-care, Ask Apollo offers a suite of services, such as booking a Physical Appointment, availing Virtual Consultations, accessing Patient Health Records, requesting home care services and booking a health check. These services are available across the Group’s extensive network of more than 70 hospitals, 200+ clinics (including speciality, dental and sugar) and 137 diagnostic centres and can be accessed through the website www.askapollo.com or the Ask Apollo mobile app.
Commenting on this development, Ms Sangita Reddy, JMD, Apollo Group remarked, ‘Apollo Hospitals started with the vision to make quality healthcare accessible to one and all. Ask Apollo is a continuation of this vision and an extension of our commitment towards patients’ welfare, ease and convenience. We have always believed in the power of technology in solving everyday problems and have been consistent in embracing it for the benefit and greater good of our patrons.’
The Physical Appointment booking service (formerly popular under the brand name Apollo Edoc) can be availed for more than 4500 doctors under the Apollo group and is spread across a massive pool of 220 specialties from cardiology to neurosciences to oncology to psychiatry. Following a simple 3-step process, the appointment booking process lets patients book quick and instant appointment for the doctor of their choice, saving the hassle of standing in queues and waiting at the hospital premise for an appointment.

Foraying into the domain of telemedicines, Ask Apollo opens doors to world-class specialists and family doctors. A boon for areas with limited access to healthcare facilities, Ask Apollo’s 100% online Virtual Consultation service hosts more than 1000 doctors across 54 specialties. Through the service, patients can also avail specialised tumour board consultations that comprise of a group of multidisciplinary doctors who meet and review cases and recommend a personalised therapy and treatment.
For Immediate Online Consultation
Most often than not, managing the heaps of medical records and reports is a huge inconvenience. Realising this, Apollo Hospitals was amongst the frontrunners to digitise Patient Health Records (formerly launched under the brand name Apollo Prism), which could be easily accessed by patients online. Further refined and improved, this service now sits under Ask Apollo.
Ask Apollo also extends a slew of preventive health packages and check-ups that can be booked and purchased online. An advanced algorithm lets one select these health packages as per the location and requirement. Users can also enrol for homecare services through Ask Apollo. Homecare includes a host of offerings such as investigations and diagnostics services at home, personalised home visit programs, nursing programs, etc.
