The Telangana Government today announced the launch of India’s first dedicated health care app for the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare to provide citizens with convenient access to healthcare as part of its effort to fulfill the Digital India Initiative. The app which is powered by Mahindra Comviva, the global leader in providing mobility solutions was conceptualized by the Healthcare Innovation Cell (HIC) of the Ministry of Health.

The application has been developed based on Mahindra Comviva’s WebAxn platform, a client – server solution that provides a rapid cross platform development and deployment of the mobile applications and managed end-to-end by Mahindra Comviva.  The solution aims to enhance mobile health-care experience by empowering users to manage their own account directly through a client on their handsets.

The app will be available for Android users in Telugu and English, and can be downloaded for free through the Google play store. The App will help the Ministry to facilitate access to its initiatives, provide public health information, locate health centers and also empower citizens to track and record their health data through the health tools.
