Venture: Doctory is a culturally competent platform creating access to quality healthcare for the underserved by providing a simple hotline number, where anyone from any part of Pakistan can call in and get connected to a doctor right away. If the patient needs to be seen by a doctor in person, she or he gets a referral to the right specialist. With 152 million cellular subscribers in Pakistan, Doctory is moving healthcare to people rather than people to healthcare.
