The developers of Yandex have updated the mobile application Yandeks.Zdorove for devices running operating systems iOS and Android. The main innovation was the possibility of online consultation with a therapist and pediatrician.
Earlier, the application allowed just to make an appointment with the right doctor without phone calls to the registry in commercial clinics and in paid departments of state clinics. As noted by the developers, online consultation will be useful to people who for some reason can not get to the clinic and do not know which doctor to go to. And also to those who just want to talk with a specialist about their health and that of their loved ones. Therapists and pediatricians work around the clock and give consultations in Russian. The application is sent to the first free specialist, so you do not have to wait long for an answer. You can chat with a doctor in a chat or video call. After consultation, he will send a report. Doctors answer questions related to medicine and caring for sick and children. From May 31 the price of the first consultation is 99 rubles, the next – 499 rubles. If a person's condition appears dangerous to the doctor, he will advise to call an ambulance and not take payment for consultation. As stressed in the message Yandex, in Russia has not yet passed a law on telemedicine, so online consultations – this is not a medical, but an information service. Yandex.Health for iOS and Android is available for free download in the App Store and Google Play.
