Engagement Ideas
Concept #1
Build virtual community of people with similar
ailments ( Community of Cancer survivors)
Example- Vikram hospital- Blogs by epileptic
patients( “ I am 34 years old- have epilepsy
since 5 years)”
International hospitals have Virtual Alcoholic
Anonymous communities
Concept #2
Medication Reminder App
Walgreens has a medication app which provides patients with a number of tools for
medication adherence. It's estimated that about half of their patients aren’t able to
stick to their medication regimens.
This feature currently generates more than 40% of all Walgreens online refills and
accounts for more transactions than any other feature within the app.
A similar app can be developed for Narayana hospital patients
Concept #3
Symptom calculator
Have an app that allows people to input their symptoms and problems
to diagnosis the disease.
They can call the doctor or make an appointment for further
information and advice.
Concept #4
Have “cancer” week and other theme based weeks- Webinars by Doctors
on the various subjects.
Webinar can be streamed live on YouTube- integrate the same on
facebook .
Process of Lead Collection
The user details are captured
A monthly newsletter will be sent to all the leads collected
with updates and the new features of the hospital
Media Mughal
All leads are captured through our proprietary
This tool helps analyze the number of
enquiries received from the various portals,
