Often, going to the doctor is more of an ado than the ailment itself. The appointments you have to take and the absence from your workplace will soon become issues of the past. With the help of a new and rather revolutionary move, you can get free and quick medical checkups on the go at these mobile AHM (Anytime Health Monitoring) centers. Since they are equipped with diagnoses for over 50 diseases, one can expect most illnesses' prognoses here.

What's the update?

Though Indore is the cleanest city in India, there is not a lack of diseases. Since the mosquito season is almost upon us, the afflictions might not be too far behind. They say that prevention is better than cure and the Indore Smart City Development Ltd (ISCDL) authorities have taken note, which is why they have begun the new AHM concept.

How does it work?

Much like an ATM, the AHM machines have been designed with the same philosophy- ease of use. The ISCDL made this decision as they want people from all walks of life to make use of the service, which has been installed on a pilot basis as of now.

Here, all you have to do is first register your mobile number and email ID, approach the machine and select health checkup. Within the menu, you will be given several options to choose from, wherein you can put in your symptoms. Apart from that, you can also test yourself for a total of 58 ailments. Once you are done with that, a detailed PDF report will be sent to your email ID, which can be shown to a doctor for further assistance.

In fact, you can also have one-on-one live video conferences with doctors right from the AHM kiosks. The doctors can then prescribe you with medicines, which are easily available. The kiosks are rather high-end and equipped with various medical scopes that are attached to the machines.

Where can you find AHM pods?

As of now, the AHM idea has been implemented at several hot spots within the city, on a pilot basis. Once the implementation becomes mainstream, the planners aim to install them at corporate parks, malls, airports, residential complexes and rural areas.

Knock Knock

For the working class of people, taking time off the busy schedule is not an option. In that respect, it becomes tough to balance one's health and work-life. However, with the help of the AHM kiosks, one can expect better and more convenient medical services, without any cost.
