Digital platform for doctors:

Currently, websites and the social media platforms provide healthcare understanding is mostly patient-centric. Numerous data sources are available for the patients to explore, but these cannot be utilized by the doctors for their practice due issues like different sources and its relevance.

Doctors have their own sources, however, it also takes significant time for doctors to search for the most appropriate and relevant information.

Digital technology can be used by healthcare professionals to have a constant networking among doctors, connect with various hospitals, continuous education and provide the best quality care to patients.
