With the average waiting time to see a physician at three weeks and even when seeing a doctor, it takes 2-3 hours from home or office to the time to get back, Doctor on Demand set out to connect patients to physicians faster and allow physicians to prescribe medications at the right pharmacies.
Geolocation is at the heart of the Doctor on Demand solution. In order to comply with medical regulations, Doctor On Demand must connect patients with physicians licensed within the state they are physcially located. With Google Maps APIs, accurately determining the state a patient is located in before connecting them with a physician becomes seamless. In addition, Doctor on Demand allows patients to view a map of nearby pharmacies before they start a video call with a medical professional. For users, maps make it easy and convenient to connect with physicians and pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy.
