The doctor examines the patient with the nurse’s help, and Telemedicine_Consultprescribes medicines. The prescription is digitally signed and emailed to the clinic. The nurse prints the prescription, dispenses medicines, and explains the dosage to the patient.

If tests have to be done, the nurse collects a test sample, which is then sent to diagnostic centers in the city for analysis. In case the patient requires more detailed medical examination, Karma’s doctors refer her to relevant specialists in nearby cities and towns.

Each Karma clinic caters to a population of 20,000 to 25,000.

The company competes with MediAngels, which allows patients to consult specialized doctors from across the globe on its online platform. The firm had recently raised US$1 million from Ventureast.
