Geographical Expansion

4.55 billion people worldwide used a mobile phone in 2014. Mobile adoption is increasing in the developing regions of Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Africa and will drive further increases. Between 2013 and 2017, mobile phone penetration will rise from 61.1% to 69.4% of the global population, according to a new eMarketer report, “Worldwide Mobile Phone Users: H1 2014 Forecast and Comparative Estimates.”

Mobile data network expansion (especially in areas outside of urban centers) in emerging markets along with rising middle classes and the adoption of smartphones and feature phones with internet capabilities will fuel growth of the mobile phone internet consumer base significantly.

OnlineCare has not only leveraged the mobile smart cellular phone technology to provide connectivity for patients to the nearest care provider via using GPS enabled platform but has also embedded zip-code data-base for the current US market to connect patient and providers within the same city and state. Hence, the care provider providing clinical consultation are not sitting in New York or Illinois or in Alaska while the care need is in Michigan or the state where the patient resides. In doing so, if patient needed to go to the urgent care or to a primary care provider, post virtual consultation, they may choose to do so and actually physically go and get the care if truly needed. In addition, OnlineCare not only connects patient and provider via GPS/zip-code enabled technology but are also able to connect the nearest pharmacy for the convenience of patient to pick up their medication.

The key value proposition of OnlineCare is that its mobile smart phone platform can be used anywhere in the world and can create access to care for rural areas where there is lack of proper internet infrastructure. In third world countries, there is lack of infrastructure to provide care and access to care. OnlineCare will help bridge the gap.
