Apollo Hospitals is geared to venture into the mobile health space with plans to tie up with telecom operators Aircel and Idea to deliver m-health solutions.
The m-health rollout is likely to start in early January 2011, in Tamil Nadu and the North East sector before being expanded to other key cities.
The service will be commenced with a core of 100 staffer and tele-centres in Chennai and Kolkata.
The expansion of the service will involve opening tele-centres in Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Delhi. We have an initial target of reaching out to an estimated 1.50 million users through the m-health platform.
