What does the Cureyo platform do

Patients can speak to top experts who are specialists that have 25 years or more of experience, book lab tests where they are connected to the top pathology labs in the country and it’s all done at a time and place that is convenient for the patient.

Why did Cureyo want to use a bot?

We felt that in a highly connected but stressful world, where health generally takes a backseat, we wanted to simplify healthcare by having a friendly health assistant that uses messaging, which you can carry in your pocket.

Why Flow XO

Bots allow users to interact with services as if they’re sending a message to another person. They’re simple to connect to, and live right where millions of users already spend a lot of their time, inside messaging apps. Flow XO is a complete platform for building, hosting and managing bots.

What the Cureyo Bot Can Do

We wanted a bot that was able to carry out the services that our platform offers such as booking consultations and lab tests, tracking diet, medicine intake and exercise as well as discussing health issues where the bot diagnoses your possible medical condition based on the answers provided by the user.

How the Bot was Built

Using a combination of API’s such as Zoho, Plot.ly and own API, we were able to build the MVP bot on Flow XO’s platform.

Clever Features of the Bot

The bot built by us is an entire ecosystem on Facebook because patients can book online (phone or video) consultations and lab tests using the bot and doctors are notified through Messenger for those consultations and the consultation can be started right there in the same chat.
