Find a Right Doctor through the Mobile Application “Marham” in Pakistan
If you have the issue to find a relevant doctor in Pakistan, the mobile app “Marham” can help you. This new application is developed by Ehsan Imam with the aim of changing the way of citizens in Pakistan to locate specialized doctors through technology.
Inspiration of Developer
In 2007, Imam’s father was admitted in the hospital of Lahore for a liver problem. The doctor said to him that his father was out of danger without checking the medical report that was clearly indicated internal bleeding. The doctor rejected the finding of medical report and after 3 days his father passed away. This tragedy turned into inspiration for Imam to develop the application which would help people to find the right doctor related to medical conditions.
According to Imam, the basic issue regarding health care in Pakistan is citizens don’t have knowledge of the disease and a way to reach the related doctors.
Imam said that my first step was making a group on Facebook where people could ask queries about any disease and discussed their issues with a group of doctors.
By downloading this app, you can find doctors with their particular icons. The mobile application “Marham” is working in 12 key cities of Pakistan at this time including Lahore, Karachi and Islamabad.
Imam highlighted that this mobile application has been downloaded by thirty thousand people and more than ten thousand appointments have been done with doctors.
