Benefits of online video consultations
- Privacy- Certain diseases and conditions in our society are often stigmatized, stopping people from visiting the doctor. However, with video consultation, you can maintain your privacy and consult any specialist at any time.
- Safety- . People are delaying their treatment for the fear of COVID-19 and are avoiding any visit to the hospital. Video consultation solves this problem as doctor consultation can now be availed from the comfort and safety of their homes.
- Accessibility- Often, people from smaller towns and cities don't have access to the healthcare facilities. And if they do, they have to travel long distances to visit the doctors, further adding to their expenses. Video consultation facilitates people's accessibility to expert doctors and quality healthcare.
