Visiting a doctor in the OPD to discuss any medical condition has been the norm for long. But fast paced lifestyle, unavailability of appointments and lack of time on one’s hand has led to the rise in online consultations. Now patients can prioritise their healthcare needs and seek consultation from the comfort of their home or office any time during the day.
Patients can also save the time and energy that is required to travel and wait outside the doctor’s office. But many have questioned the fact if online consultation is as effective as seeing a doctor in person. Well it might be not, since the doctor does not examine the patient personally and there are chances that the diagnosis can be missed. Although this is a possibility, one has to understand that online consultation is not a replacement for OPD visit. It is just a medium to seek quick consult to address pressing medical needs. It is also a great way to connect remote areas and offer healthcare to the needy, for whom seeking quality healthcare is a distant dream. It is cheap and accessible throughout the day.
