About the project
Rocket Health is a bundled service of The Medical Concierge Group, a licensed and registered clinic, laboratory and pharmacy. We offer telemedicine healthcare services such as doctor consultations through phone calls, Whatsapp and SMS, laboratory sample pickups and medicine delivery at your convenience and from any location within Kampala- Uganda.
Rocket Health Initiative responds to the problems of remoteness of health facilities, long waiting lines, low doctor-to-patient ratios and the lack of access to credible health information.
Their 24/7 tele-consultation service allows for remote resolution of health inquiries thus reducing burden on an already stretched health system. Leveraging on mobile phone for health information dissemination diversifies communication channels from the traditional radio and community events.
