Doctor consultation has never been easy enough as it is today. Gone are the days when you needed to visit a doctor physically even for minor discussions. Now, you consult a doctor who is a specialist in their fields while sitting at home. The trick is telemedicine!
What is Telemedicine?
Telemedicine is the technology that one can use to consult a doctor remotely. In most cases, it just requires a stable internet connection to get connected to a doctor and that’s all. Although it sounds simple, it can help in various aspects. Unlike a WhatsApp call communication, telemedicine integrates tools like prescription management, medicine delivery, and home sampling of lab tests.
How to consult a doctor?
To consult a doctor online, you need a telemedicine platform. Although there are various Telemedicine providers in Pakistan, there are very few who actually have various integrations with services that are required. Only Instacare is providing a whole environment where you can consult a doctor virtually. To consult a doctor, follow the following steps:
- You can download the Instacare App through Apple Store or Play store or you can visit instacare.pk.
- There, click on the online consultation tab on the top ribbon.
- From there, select the specialization of the doctors you need.
- Click on book appointments.
After this process, you’ll receive a confirmation message with a link to the meeting that’ll be activated at the time your appointment has been scheduled.
Join in the link that has been provided on time and consult a doctor while sitting at home.
During the call, the doctor will diagnose the disease mainly through the symptoms the patient faces. This leads to the generation of a prescription. The prescription can be requested from the InstaCare App for easy delivery. Moreover, if the doctor suggests some tests, you can book a home sampling of the test in which InstaCare will collect the sample from your doorsteps and the report will be shared on your phone for your convenience.
It’s glad to know that when the whole world is shifting to the digital healthcare system, Pakistan is also speeding up in the field of health tech. As far as online consultation is related, through Instacare, today, every Pakistani can have access to equal healthcare services as anyone else at the minimum cost possible.
