Has Corona Virus Given A Boost to Telemedicine? Is it A Viable Alternative to Traditional Consultations?
Telemedicine

Date

With the outbreak of SARS Covid-19, the World Health Organization (WHO) has instructed the governments to impose lockdown in the countries worldwide to reduce the spread of the Corona Virus. In this situation, the World Health Organization (WHO) has advised the healthcare departments to introduce telemedicine services to treat the patients in this critical situation. Telemedicine is not new, yet people are reluctant to the usage of telemedicine.

How Telemedicine works?

Telemedicine is a bridge between the gap between patients and doctors. It facilitates the patients to get the guidance of physicians while staying at home and keeping themselves safe. It is a very significant technology for those who show some symptoms of Covid-19. They can get vital advice from their doctors and open up their present situation in front of the physicians through virtual discussions.

It is the safest technology in this critical and horrifying situation. It has an advantage for those suffering from chronic diseases, which can consult with their doctors at home instead of visiting clinics and hospitals and having a face-to-face meeting with the doctors. Rather, such patients can have their consultations with their doctors at home. This keeps them safe from exposure to Covid-19. It is the safest doctor at home. Furthermore, the doctors can see where their patients live and where all the mass of their health lies.

Telemedicine a viable alternative way to formal consultation:

Telemedicine is a viable alternative way to traditional consultation. It is far better than the conventional consultancy of visiting clinics and physicians. It is the safest, convenient, and cost-saving manner. One can explain his medical situation to his physician on the web through a virtual meeting. Telemedicine will play a very vital role in future situations.

Using telemedicine is very beneficial for getting treatment from physicians at home. In the beginning, people were not aware of telemedicine. Still, in the Covid-19 Pandemic, telemedicine has achieved vital importance, and now people have become fully familiar with telemedicine’s usage and benefits.  This helps people giving better health status. They can stay in touch with health care provider by maintaining social distances in the pandemic situation.

Final Thoughts

This is a viable way of video conferencing in which a physician can examine his patient, and the glucose reading of the patient can be sent to the physician automatically through modern IT modifications. Now, a person can get access to his physician at any place at any time. With the development of telemedicine, now the physicians are just a click away from the patients. One can install a particular app of telemedicine and can have access to his physician free of cost. Now, we don’t need to book appointments. Nor do we need to wait for a long time in the waiting lounge of hospitals. Now, we are at a click away from our physician. Telemedicine has made the lives of every single person easy.
