As we continue to learn about the COVID-19 virus, it is important for Nigerians especially those with pre-existing health issues to have access to healthcare professionals while helping to contain the community spread of the disease. 

People who feel sick or have questions about the virus can get consultations with qualified physicians on the DRO Health app from the comfort of their home.

DRO Health has made virtual check-ups, doctor’s consultations and other health care services possible with groundbreaking technology that is easy to use. 

DRO Health user, Ms. Veevaa said: “I’ve had body aches, headaches and a runny nose, I was too afraid to go to the hospital so I booked an appointment with a doctor on the platform. My symptoms are gone and I’m no longer afraid”. 

Another user, Mr. Dante said: “I’ve had migraines for most of my adult life but the option to see a neurologist has never been available to me at my local hospital. When I signed up on the platform, I was able to choose which specialist to see based on my symptoms and I’m using the app to manage my condition. It’s really convenient”. 

DRO Health’s CTO, Emeka Iwuchukwu said: “Just like FinTech is changing the banking industry, Telemedicine will change the healthcare industry by providing quality healthcare to anyone with a smart device”. 

With the COVID-19 virus outbreak, people’s needs are different. There is an urgency to expand the use of virtual care to reduce panic by making healthcare professionals available to answer users’ questions about their symptoms while distancing themselves from the public. The CEO, Dr Ifeanyi Iwuchukwu said he is committed to ensuring that the most vulnerable people are able to receive quality care by forging partnerships with some of the best hospitals and doctors in the country. 

Launched in late 2019, the DRO Health App has features that are most relevant to the needs of Africans. Some of these features include: Consultations, Prescriptions and Diagnostics. DRO Health is launching a Women’s Health Clinic, Mental Health Clinic and Men’s Health Clinic in the summer. 

At a time like this when the world is fighting a pandemic, users with other health issues can still consult with a GP or specialist without worrying about getting infected by a virus. Users can talk to a doctor and receive medical advice about whether he or she needs to see a doctor in person for a physical exam. 

Doctors can also order diagnostic tests with diagnostics partners and give prescriptions to patients via the app. 

The app is available to download on the Google Play Store and Apple Store for iOS and Android users. Visit for more information.
