Call9.com A startup that provides online Emergency Doctor services


Call9  a US based Y-Combinator accelerated telemedicine startup has developed a 911 alternative for nursing homes, schools, and hotels to use in case of a medical emergency. The nurse, teacher, or concierge can open the Call9 app to immediately connect, via video chat, to an on-call ER doctor. The doctor assesses what’s going on with the patient, instructs the person on the ground how to perform basic medical procedures and administer medicine, and hits a button to order an ambulance if necessary.

The Call9 app will be an alternative for on-demand urgent care services. Callnine provides your business with instant access to world-class physicians for your immediate medical needs.

Call9 Business Model
ER doctors work in 12-hour shifts, and if they ever want to get extra work, it’s 12 hours of time, there’s no seeing one patient,. With Call9 they can take ten calls at a time, or work for an hour, and it’s a whole different model for them to make extra revenue.

Call9 Revenue Model
Call9 is charging a basic subscription fee for the nursing homes, schools and hotels, depending on the medical supplies required and level of employee training. It charges per patient as well to cover the cost of diagnostic tests and the ambulance, if called.

Comments on Call9 Logo
Logo is simple, creative and conveys the message straight , 911 is popular in US for emergency service and call9 is named based on that,   it's a reverse of 911 the two ll's in the call were cleverly used as 11 followed by 9 which makes 911 and a + symbol inside nine conveys they are into health business.
