Let’s improve communication between patient and doctor
How often do we, as patients, need a direct communication with our doctor or healthcare provider? An urgent appointment online …, a little feedback about the medicine the doctor prescribed …, a fast question on a side-effect of medicine …, a real-time conversation informing the healthcare professional about the improvement (or not) of our situation …., small enquiries about our blood testing results …. And the list could be longer.
But for providers, too, being able to reach a patient after a surgical procedure, or a consultation, is valuable, even if it not in the frame of the normal practice appointment.
There is an obvious gap between practice appointments, medical procedures and testing. A better (that means faster, but always reliable) doctor-patient communication can fill that gap. It would provide better patient experience, more satisfaction with follow-up by providers and, overall, better care. Without any doubt, a win-win situation.
Technology is not a problem. It is getting all concerned persons on board: providers, patients, health insurance …
We will provide a solution.
