Talking about the CoVcare package, Anurag Khosla, CEO of Aetna India, said “The two Covid waves have jolted India’s healthcare infrastructure. It has forced not just policy makers but also the healthcare industry to augment their capacity and invest in new models of healthcare delivery providing both preventive and primary care to minimize the impact of any further Covid waves. vHealth CoVcare packages bundle the power of telemedicine and our partner network to provide expert medical guidance for successfully treating Covid at home.

Most of the people can recover at home and manage their health condition if they get the right consultation and other support well in time.”

Through our network of healthcare partners, hospitals and labs we can provide access to vHealth services pan India.
