Often disease that cause fever like Dengue, Malaria and Chickengunya have confusing symptoms and patients are put under a lot of trauma due to repetitive testing for same disease or a new test every day for a disease. This causes a lot of physical discomfort, mental trauma and most dangerously a delay in treatment. What is even more worrying is a scenario where an incorrect diagnosis may lead to life threatening situations. Hence it is important that a 100% sensitive, accurate and reliable test be conducted for diseases causing fever. In a sphere as critical as healthcare, time thus becomes of prime importance, and this is the lacunae that Metropolis Healthcare looks to fill, in its efforts to make diagnostic dilemma obsolete.
