On May 22, it has been reported that Solve.Care announced a new marketplace that allows users to consult medical practitioners anywhere in the world. It’s called the Global Telehealth Exchange (GTHE).
However, GTHE also provides physicians with a way to engage in telemedicine by publishing their profiles, rates, availability, and then accepting appointments. The system was designed with openness in mind, so third-party telehealth solutions will be able to use its registry.

It has been analyzed that the service will be accessible through Care.Wallet healthcare management system and will be available for users in select countries later this year.
Doctors who provide their services through the platform will be able to review the patient’s past medical records after obtaining permission from the user. This is meant to avoid conducting the same assessments multiple times. Also, it helps to prevent doctors from performing unnecessary medical tests.
As per the report, all the medical records and transactions, all carried out in the SOLVE token, on the platform are stored on-chain to ensure that the data is tamper-proof.
Pradeep Goel, the CEO of Solve.Care, explained why telemedicine is now more important than ever before.
Thus, he added:
“The Covid-19 pandemic has severely tested the way healthcare systems are organized and delivered from a number of perspectives. Now, more and more patients are reluctant to visit their doctors due to the pandemic. Medical practitioners who are not primarily involved in treating Covid-19 cases have experienced a significant drop in patient appointments. The launch of Global Telehealth Exchange is geared towards remedying this imbalance.”
