An app was rolled out last week where an individual can discuss with a doctor without having to take a trip to the hospital/clinic. “IVH patient care” will also assist doctors to keep a record of all people who visit them for check up.
Utilizing the app, patients who have complexity in taking a trip to seek advice from doctors can revise their status and the type of medical therapy they are experiencing. Utilizing the same app, the doctors can verify the status and direct the patients on what steps to be taken next. The app also assists the doctors to keep an eye of all their patients who cannot pay usual visits in spite being needed to do so.
“There is no or little mechanism to keep record of the treatment journeys of the patient that are submitted to specialists. Sometimes doctors lose track of their patients at the time of referral chains. The principal treating doctors, who checked the patient for the first time and are aware about most of the history of the patient, need to be up to date about the treatment cycle of the patient since their remarks really does not count in the whole process of treatment,” said Hyperbaric and Internal Medicine expert at Indraprasta Apollo Hospital, Tarun Sahani.
“IVH patient care” app has been designed by India Virtual Hospitals. It is a technology-enabled specialized Medical Concierge Service dealing with the requirements of medical travelers seeking quality therapy in the country. Claiming that it is a right of the doctor to be aware about their patient whom they offer therapy, Sahani stated that an app such as this will surely go a long way to assist doctors to be up to date about treatment status of their patients.
“This may turn out to be a platform where specialists and doctors can discuss and interact with each other about the patient,” he claimed. Rolling out the app, Managing Partner of India Virtual Hospital, Swadeep Srivastava, said, ” When patients are referred to some other hospital by doctors in an unknown city, it is great effort for them to keep track of their patients.”
