You can consult with reliable doctors!

How many times did you unsuccessfully look for an experienced doctor who can be trusted with your health? We solved this problem on Qapsula!

Taking into consideration the important role of trust between the doctor and the patient on the road to recovery, we created an automatic system capable of analyzing every registered patient and recommending him reliable doctors. A personal approach to each Qapsula user and an automatic analysis of his social contacts allows our smart system to recommend to our patients such a professional for whom their friends can guarantee!

Free online consultations are real!

Within tha Qapsula framework we strive to make medical care as accessible to all as possible. And what can be more accessible than free advice? Thanks to the support of large clinical funds and pharmaceutical companies, we made text consultations absolutely free for all Qapsula patients within two months.

During this time our doctors conducted more than 1000 free text consultations and answered more than 2500 questions of patients. This invaluable experience has helped us to improve the functionality of our portal significantly and make great progress in promoting our mobile applications.

We also increased the number of characters (from 150 to 700 characters) in free questions to all doctors of our project and added the ability to attach photos to them. Do not look for an answer to your question on the Internet! Get it on Qapsula from a certified specialist, checked by us.
