As the telecommunication grows, the need for computers, internet, 3rd generation mobiles becomes an essential part of any individuals life. Let us see the positive and negative impacts of visiting an online doctor.
Present Scenario In OUT-PATIENT:
A patient sees a doctor in person, explains his/ her complaints related to his illness to the doctor. He is examined by the doctor and prescribed the drugs. All relevant investigations are ordered and viewed during the follow-up visit.
What’s New In Online Consultation ??!!
All the above-mentioned happenings were only the rosy picture of the in-person consultation.
The Points Against In-person Visit Are:
These are only a few among the many reasons.
The Points Against Online Consultation Are:
All the above points are not denied. But it is the online consultation concept which has to be completely understood by both patients & doctors who use this portal. Let’s go in depth to discuss better.
First of all online doctor consultation does not form a short cut for a physical consultation. It is only a communication platform which decreases the false barrier between patient and doctor, and for a patient to clarify his query to which he/she has to consult is finalized.
Let Us Take an Example:
Mr. X has body pain, fever, and tiredness - 1 day. He is not able to apply leave on the particular day, owing to his commitment in his office. What are his options?
Dear friends what option will you choose? Think it is over? Question is not new to you. Would you have already done that in the past?
Anything you chooses is not correct. This is my answer. Seeing a doctor immediately is the ideal solution. But how many can lead an ideal lifestyle?
Think About This Choice:
So, all I wanted to conclude is:- iCliniq.com is not a replacement to in-person consultation, but a symbiosis to in-person consultation.
Let us all use this as a boon!
