DrLive has also introduced a dedicated App for Doctors called ‘DrLive-Rounds’. It enables doctors to consult with their patients over video, but it also facilitates them to get their entire practice ‘on the cloud’. The platform is built keeping the ease of use factor to help doctors take advantage of the highly intuitive user experience to grow their practice.
