Vi (Vodafone Idea) has partnered with MFine AI-powered healthcare platform to connect patients with doctors through instant chat and video consultation. Vi customers can use the Vi app to connect with over 4,000 doctors from over 600 reputed hospitals across 35 specialties on MFine at no extra charge. This service, announced via a press release, comes at a time when physically visiting hospitals for consultations are deemed risky due to the ongoing pandemic and people are generally advised to stay in their homes.

Through the Vi app, Vi customers will be able to connect with over 4,000 doctors in the country. They can do so at no extra charge, regardless of their pack or plan. They can upload images, past medical records, and prescriptions for their doctors to analyse.
