Going to see the doctor can be a significant source of hassle for your patients!
There are about a million reasons to go to the doctor and about a million excuses to avoid it. The three major categories of reasons for avoiding medical care could be-
Traditional barriers such as transportation, mobility-impaired issues (especially for elders), high costs, and time constraints
Lack of trained medical professionals in their neighbourhood
A low perceived need to seek medical care - expecting their illness or symptoms to improve over time
Fortunately, telemedicine is a game-changer for all this!
As technology has advanced at a breakneck pace, so has the universal accessibility and affordability of telemedicine apps, as doctors and hospital professionals look for effective ways to improve patient outcomes.
