While the sixth most populated country, Pakistan with its population of over 200 Million people is fighting against Coronavirus, InstaCare has introduced free-of-cost online coronavirus consultation by using telemedicine in Pakistan.
The country is about to exceed 200 coronavirus infections in Pakistan with 2 recoveries and 1 death. According to research children and elders over 50 years are at high risk. We also found that the life of coronavirus is up to 72 hours alive on stainless steel and plastic. Here’s a high time to embrace the use of telemedicine to fight coronavirus, but how?
Increasing Accessibility to Medical Services with Telemedicine in Pakistan
The best thing about Telehealth technology is that it allows patient to enjoy the comfort of home while getting consulted from his/her doctor. While we all know that coronavirus can transmit into your body from a distance of few meters so it is definitely not a good idea to visit any clinic/hospital or medical center where there can be more coronavirus patients. Symptoms of coronavirus do not require any physical examination at the first stage so we can save the lives of patients and doctors by analyzing patients with telemedicine and only if the patient is having high chances of coronavirus then they can be referred to further for lab test and diagnostic services with home sampling.
InstaCare has been organizing the telemedicine healthcare services from past many years and following are some of the glimpses of these activities:

Helping Remote and Underserved areas with Telemedicine in Pakistan
We all know that the rural population is much higher than the urban population in Pakistan yet healthcare services in the rural sector have always been a challenge for the government of Pakistan. Although the government has worked really hard to increase the accessibility of healthcare services in rural as well as urban areas and increased the number and improved the quality of healthcare given in DHQs, BHUs and THQs yet the accessibility is a question mark.
With the involvement of Telemedicine in Pakistan, InstaCare can help the government to fight against the challenge of accessibility, efficiency, and reliability of Healthcare Services.
InstaCare has already validated, tested and executed its telemedicine set up in villages in different remote areas of KPK and Punjab. The following are some pictures from these setups:

Today due to immense pressure on doctors it is very difficult for the service provider to give focused attention to patients however telemedicine help doctor as well as patients to get a best quality experience and following are some of the reviews available on our youtube channel as well.
InstaCare is removing the barriers between doctors as well as patients and can help significantly to government, patients, doctors and hospitals in fighting against the coronavirus in Pakistan.
