Teleconsultation – 5 Reasons you need to start doing it.

Teleconsultation has now become an important tool in the Doctor’s Practice.

Here are 5 important reasons why Doctors should employ Teleconsultation as a part of their practice:

Reason # 1: Chronic Patients reports follow-up

Chronic patients often have to show investigations reports to Doctors regularly. With cities going into lockdowns and coming out of lockdowns, it becomes difficult for patients to travel to the Doctor’s clinic merely to show reports and get their opinion on continuation of the same treatment or change in treatment. A quick teleconsultation call can help the patient share the reports with Doctor and save time for both, the Doctor and the patient.

Reason # 2: Out station patients’ visits

Many specialist Doctors in metro often cater to out station patients. With travel restrictions in place and in view of patient safety, if teleconsultation can be an option to review the case of such chronic patients, why not consider this option? It is again a timesaver for both the Doctor and the patient.

Reason # 3: Avoid senior citizen patients at clinic

Unless and otherwise required to see in person, aged patients who fall under the chronic patient category would love the teleconsultation option. They won’t have to book a cab or auto or drive to the Doctor’s clinic and risk being exposed under the pandemic situation.

Reason # 4: Entertaining queries from patients in free time

Many of your existing patients also have queries which if their own Doctor can answer can help them. Having a talk with them via teleconsultation in your free time helps them get the right answers to their questions rather than relying on random information over the internet.

Reason # 5: The ease of doing teleconsultation in today’s times

Gone are the days when Doctors had to worry and think about how they would do teleconsultation and how would the patients pay. Multiple companies now provide Doctors with options to teleconsultation quite effectively. We at MyOPD also allow Doctors to accept appointment bookings from patients who want to engage in teleconsultation with the Doctor. If you want more information, feel free to Contact Us.
