"As a practicing physician I can testify that health issues may be very unpredictable. A patient who is seemingly healthy today might require urgent care tomorrow. That is why appropriate identification & urgent medical care may be of utmost importance. For some acute medical conditions, Olwel has taken a challenging task in this direction with their on demand medical support. I wish their success."
"Physicians looking for a better balance between professional commitments and personal/family interests will find that Olwel accommodates, and even encourages, a greater degree of flexibility than is possible in any other job role. Patients on the other hand are rewarded with a highly knowledgeable team of doctors who are there to support from the very beginning. A brilliant initiative!"
"Olwel is a major step in the healthcare system. We believe that this idea is innovative and may be effective if used to its full potential. We have full faith in this new system and are hoping the idea of door-to-door medical service becomes widespread."
We are a Finland based startup working in Bangladesh.
We are coming up with an essential doorstep healthcare service
for patients who prefer to receive medical
consultation at their home.
Our service will be ideal for patients with movement difficulties and anyone who wants to avoid the traffic jam and the long queues at a doctors office.
