We are actively looking for two people to add to docSuggest team. The job description and other details are posted at the docSuggest Careers page (in case you missed the “We’re hiring!” note at the top of the site). If you are interested or know anybody who is, drop us an email at email@example.com.
Although people have been using the site and the phone line (040 64 56 65 65) for booking appointments with us, we realized that most of them had at least one common question – how much does it cost?
Plain and simple answer, nothing! Just to clarify further, it really is nothing, no hidden costs, no trial periods, nothing. docSuggest for our users is free and will remain so.
We recently discovered that the folks at the computational search engine at Wolfram|Alpha have introduced an interesting feature where they crunch their disease dataset to produce statistics on disease symptoms, treatments and drugs.
An excerpt from their blog:
For example, “hypertension drug treatment”, initially shows us that, of all the patients diagnosed with hypertension, 25% were prescribed angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors, 22% HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors, 21% cardioselective beta blockers, 19% antihypertensive combinations, and 16% calcium channel blocking agents. (That’s over 100% total because some patients are prescribed more than one medication.)
Currently their dataset is limited to a fraction of patients in United States, the concept, though, is universally applicable.
It has been more than a month since docSuggest was officially launched. We bring you the highlights of the event.
On May 16, 2010, we conducted a free health camp and invited Dr. K. Rosaiah, Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, to launch the website. We also organized health talks by a number of prominent doctors of Hyderabad. The details of the health camp are available at http://www.docsuggest.com/events.
