Microsoft ties up with Apollo Hospitals for digital healthcare solutionsFor a quick and easy health and wellness facility, the digital Arm of the Apollo Hospitals Group and Microsoft India have joined hands to launch enterprise solution within the Microsoft work suite. It has been tested in a pilot program for Microsoft India employees for a period of three months

Due to the upcoming covid third wave, organisations have been looking for digital healthcare solutions to support their employees and families. Now with the integration of Apollo and Microsoft, employees can get various medical facilities such as medical teleconsultation, vaccine booking, pharmacy, diagnostic tests, electronic health records, and wellness programs with just a click of the button.

The enterprise solution enables a user to consult an Apollo Doctor within 15 minutes of requesting a consult; order medicines from the wide network of Apollo Pharmacies; and request for sample collection from home for prescribed diagnostic tests within Microsoft Teams itself.

As part of the pilot program, 5000 Microsoft employees were given the access on this enterprise platform and over 50 percent of them chose to take virtual consultations with an Apollo doctor during the months of April–June. In addition to virtual consultations, over 2,600 medicine orders were also placed using the App, which were delivered at the doorsteps of the consumers in record time. Each of the registered Microsoft employees had access to over 7,000 doctors and specialists across the Apollo network.

On this major integration Madhu Aravind, CTO, Apollo 24|7 said, “Healthcare is evolving to meet the immediate and future demands during the global health crisis. With the advancements in technology, people across the globe are embracing digital healthcare solutions. Apollo 24|7 has been developed to provide access to quality care to everyone. We are excited to partner with Microsoft during this pandemic to support organizations for employee wellbeing”

Talking about the association, Meetul Patel, Microsoft’s Executive Director, Strategic Growth, said, “In today’s hybrid work environment, organizations are increasingly looking to make access to wellness resources easier for their employees. Our partnership with Apollo has helped bring this access right into the flow-of -work by making resources easy to access from within Microsoft Teams which serves in so many ways as the “Office” in the emerging work environment”
