Just like many other remote services boosted by the pandemic, Oviva is no exception to the rule. With face-to-face services becoming unsafe from one day to the next, the pandemic opened a window of opportunity for the tech start up. “At the beginning of the pandemic, we registered a decrease in new patients because they were referred to us by their doctors whom they weren’t able to see anymore. Then, many began to request our services on their own and our traction rapidly increased above our pre-COVID expectations. Today, we can offer our services in a way that suits our patients best: from the comfort of their home, face-to-face or via a phone call”, concludes the successful entrepreneur, proud to stress that the app was certified as a medical device in January 2021.
