Using technology for medical consultations for patients too sick to travel
Many patients are too sick to attend medical appointments or specialist appointments and consultations. It would be helpful to use such VOIP technologies as skype or similar to ensure patients receive medical professional assistance. Even keep contact with their therapist and practitioners.
Many specialists still refuse to use modern technologies and have limited consultation times making many patients unable to receive assistance.
We, the undersigned, call upon the medical regulatory authorities and licensed medical practitioners to recommend and utilize more modern technologies (e.g. Skype) to assist patient care and treatments. Especially for chronically ill patients and those patients too unwell to travel and attend standard consultation times.
We believe this would help maintain relationships, ensure proper care and monitor patient health.
