Circle of Life Healthcare Private Limited has launched an app called 'myCOL' to simplify the hospitalization experience for patients and their caretakers in India, starting first with the National Capital Region. The app will provide exhaustive information of more than 1300 hospitals across the city, irrespective of size and facilities, through an easy to use map based search. Shortly, the Company will also operationalize its flagship service whereby it will provide a free personal assistant to the user, who will take care of all procedural formalities at the time of hospitalization.
With the recent outbreak of an epidemic like Dengue or Malaria, even in a city like Delhi, which has the second highest number of hospital beds in the country, there was reportedly an acute shortage of hospital beds. myCOL's endeavour is to remove the asymmetry of information regarding hospital facilities and assist the patient in his hour of need.
The App can be downloaded from the Google Playstore and soon will be available on the iOS platform. The website is accessible at http://www.mycol.in/
