Today, only India accounts for 1.18 billion mobile connections, 700 million Internet users, and 600 million smartphones, which are increasing 25 million per quarter (Abbas, 2021).

The philosophy behind launching Hello ESO aimed at bringing back patient trust in the existing health system and acting as a supporting model to disseminate right and appropriate advice and build patients trust and confidence. Moreover, the remote (online) monitoring of patients through teleconsultations for primary health have become a novel necessity of many countries to extend support in tough times. On other side, due to limited accessibility of services from specialists and super-specialists, the technology for patient with critical illnesses are still far away from the reach of a common man (‘aam aadmi’).

While the primary consultations are hard to avail, the patients and families have rarely thought of expert second opinion. Even the option for having a second opinion limitedly available left the patient paying extra pockets for the expenses of travelling, absences from jobs and hard time to get an appointment from specialists or group of specialists.
