Explain your idea in details:
Teenspoc is a mhealth as well as guidance and counselling platform providing health and general web-being service to users. The platform helps to connect doctors/medical personnel with patients thereby giving them direct access to basic medical services without visiting the hospital. The psychiatric hospitals can also make use of the platform to monitor the health status of their discharged patients via a web based interaction with such patient without the patient neccessarily returning to d hospital for check ups. The guidance and counseling section gives users, (especially those with the risk of psychological problems such as depression, confusion, etc as a result of their present life threatening challenges) access to qualified and approved counselors for counseling and guidance when faced with challenges..
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
With Teenspoc, we bridge the gap between medical personnel and citizens by bringing basic medical services to their door step and also reducing the rate at which patients queue-up at the hospital just to see a doctor. Also considering the rate at which people get depress and totally confused as a result of challenges they face which many a times results in untimely death and other psychological problems, with teenspoc each user gains direct access to approved guidance and counselors in every aspect of life thereby increasing the general well-being of users.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
Teenspoc is a for non-profit platform which will require collaboration with medical organizations and medical bodies as well as donations from external bodies for implementation. As the community grows, other related services will be included and users might need to pay a token for the service and sustainability of the platform.
