WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME WHEN I VISIT A DOCTOR FOUND THROUGH THE VIOS APP?
Like in most clinic visits, the doctor would request to see any previous medical reports, tests, opinions, xrays and so on just to get a whole idea. It is best that when you connect with a ViOS Health Partner of your choosing, along with confirming your attendance, you can also ask if any particular documents are needed.
WHAT PERSONAL INFORMATION DOES VIOS TAKE WHEN REGISTERING?
ViOS believes very strongly about patient confidentiality, and of course the doctor-patient relationship. That is why we are not requesting for any intimate health data of our patients. We only require your name, mobile number of social media profile to confirm your identity, your bkash number is needed to provide you payment as a form of gratitude for recommending us to your social circle!
As for our Health Partners, we are very strict with authenticating the BMDC registration and related medical certifications to prove your capacity to see and treat our/your patient to the best of your clinical skills. Your exact chamber is geofenced to ensure that the location of it is fit for patients to arrive and be treated in a respectful and accessible manner.
