On visiting clinics or any healthcare facility, the two things patients often notice is the huge queue in front of the registration desk, and irritated receptionists.

Typically, patients have to wait in a queue to get an appointment every time they visit the clinic. They further have to wait for a long time, sometimes more than an hour, for a 10 to 15 minute consultation. On top of that, repetitive questions by the patients and enquiries about the waiting time leave receptionists irritated. . 

This is a long-pending healthcare problem that needs to be addressed in India . More now than ever, when the coronavirus pandemic is spreading fast and wide. Dedicating new clinics or assigning new  doctors is a  difficult task in India, where the doctor-patient ratio is skewed. This is where Oxyfind comes in. 

Based out of Guwahati , Assam, Oxyfind has developed two applications - OXYQR and OSS (Oxyfind Smart Screen), that  enables patients to book appointments with doctors using a QR code, and track the appointment in real time. 

“We believe that using our technology, we can help reduce the spread of the pandemic in hospitals and OPDs, which are the hotbeds for the spread of coronavirus,” says Co-founder Pankaj Mazumdar, 28.
