The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the nature of events that followed, triggered a global increase in demand for Telemedicine consultations. As more people are confined to their homes, it has become increasingly necessary to find innovative ways to access basic needs without having to move from place to place.
Global health guidelines have also advised patients to connect with their healthcare providers virtually before having an in-person visit, in order to limit exposure of patients and medical staff to the coronavirus. These factors have prompted a corresponding increase in telemedicine consultations worldwide.
In Nigeria, Telemedicine adoption has also seen a similar increase. One stand out example of this is Tremendoc Limited, Nigeria’s leading telemedicine platform. Tremendoc completed a milestone 35,000 telemedicine consultations as at June 2020 on its mobile app; an unprecedented feat in an industry still very much in its early stages globally.
“Today, on behalf of Tremendoc Limited, I celebrate the fulfillment of a major milestone”, Jay Chikezie, Founder/CEO of Tremendoc wrote in a Linkedin article.
“As we celebrate this major milestone, we are thankful for the thousands of customers who entrust us with their most valuable possession— their lives. We recognize the immense responsibility that comes with that trust, and it is amazing to witness the frontline role Tremendoc is playing in the advancement of telemedicine in Nigeria.” – Jay expressed further.
The Tremendoc app connects patients to a pool of 200+ licensed doctors, using video call, audio conference, and chat features.
The adoption of Telemedicine consultation could very well contribute to providing improved access to quality healthcare, and Tremendoc is leading this innovative charge in Nigeria.
The company’s focus is geared towards ensuring that every Nigerian has timely access to quality healthcare, when and wherever they need it. Following successful partnerships with industry giants such as Sterling Bank, Axa Mansard and UBA, Tremendoc is quickly revolutionizing healthcare delivery across Nigeria.
