New York, NY, July 1, 2021: The Association of Kerala Medical Graduates (AKMG) recently announced the launch of DronaCare, a no cost platform provided by Innovation Incubator that doctors can use during their leisure time to provide virtual video advice on Covid-19 care for anyone. To ensure that the advice provided through DronaCare is authentic, access to the Doctor signup in the app is restricted to member doctors of the AKMG.

“Our members have been in the forefront in the fight against Covid-19 and while we collectively continue to work towards managing the pandemic in North America and Canada, we also want to extend our support to everyone back in India. In addition to raising funds, we built DronaCare in partnership with Innovation Incubator, to share our expertise in providing Covid-19 care to everyone in India as well,” said Dr. Subrahmanya Bhat MD, President of AKMG and a leading pulmonologist based in Atlanta GA, USA.

DronaCare was built in partnership with Innovation Incubator and is a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiative of both organizations to support the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in India.

“There is a lot of misinformation doing the rounds on Covid-19 and often this leads to critical conditions which could have been prevented. DronaCare gives our volunteering doctors the opportunity to provide reliable and genuine Covid-19 care advice for everyone,” said Dr. Bindu Sudhakaran MD.

AKMG also emphasized the fact that the advice provided through DronaCare is only meant to increase Covid-19 awareness and to provide guidance, and is not a medical consultation.

“There are more than 80,000 medical doctors of Indian origin in the USA. DronaCare is one of the many initiatives at Innovation Incubator to give back to our society. During these challenging times, technology plays a vital role in bridging gaps, sharing expertise and providing care across borders. DronaCare aims to just do that by providing Covid-19 advice easily accessible on demand from specialists across the globe,” said Mr. Ajith Kavirajan, Vice President at Innovation Incubator Advisory Pvt Ltd Kerala, a subsidiary of Innovation Incubator Holding LLC.

Furthermore, Ms. Fathima Saleem, Product Manager at Innovation Incubator added that, “DronaCare was built using minimalist design approach so that anyone who is looking for Covid-19 advice can access it quickly by just registering with a mobile number and language preference. Users can select from a short list of three available doctors and then request advice through a video session.”

DronaCare is available at and iOS mobile app can be downloaded from the App store. Also, the Android version of the app will be available in Play Store soon.

AKMG has been the premier and pioneer Alumni Organization in North America {USA and Canada} for Medical and Dental specialists of Kerala origin, since its inception in 1979-80, thereby setting the precedent for an organization of healthcare professionals of any ethnic or international origin in North America.
