From a 3 days old baby to a 70-year-old man; healthcare is essential for everyone. According to WHO standard, there should be 1 doctor for every 1000 patients but unfortunately, in India, there is one doctor for every 1600 patients.
That being said, it’s easy to figure out why all the hospitals/clinic always have a huge queue outside them.
But for a 21st-century person, waiting is indeed a waste of time. We are always on the lookout for a faster and efficient solution. This is where online doctor consultations come in the picture. Over the years, online doctor consultations have become popular among the masses as it allows to save up time that is otherwise spent on traveling, waiting, etc.
What is an online doctor consultation?
In an online doctor’s consultation:
● The patients and doctors are always connected through the internet/call.
● Instead of the physical sitting in the doctor’s room, the patient and the doctor can have a conversation over the phone/video.
● The patient can share details of their symptoms or a picture of the affected areas and after analyzing the picture, the doctor provides an analysis of the condition.
● The doctor then provides a prescription to the patient.
● The patient can ask follow-up questions to his doctor for the next 3 days.
