When every corporate has a website why not a health-focused website as well? Medico.com, Inc., a global health-focused Internet company, took the initiative and launched its web portal Medico.in, a platform for consumers to find health information. Medico.in is free for users to share information, and to ask and answer questions.
Elan Dekel, Founder and CEO of Medico.com Inc said "with the launch of Medico.in, we will be providing highly informative and locally relevant health information to our users across India. I hope our users in India will use our platform to share their knowledge and learn from the experiences of others with similar concerns. I expect the platform to be very valuable to our Indian audience".
Medico is set to go beyond just being a health portal to include an engaging Q&A based community of local citizens, local healthcare providers and experts.
Other than India, the portal is already running in Spain and Brazil. As a platform, Medico.in will be creating the ommunities and resources which would provide information on specific health topics as well as local concerns.
