The police have strengthened surveillance and are taking strict actions against those who violate the lockdown rules. In most places, essential goods are delivered at the door steps so that no one goes outside. The police, however, do not stop those who are going to the hospital. But, in the present scenario it is quite risky to go to a hospital for minor health problems. It is during times like these that one could use the modern technology application to consult doctors online.
Malayala Manorama’s online doctor booking application QKDOC facilitates video consultation with specialist doctors. The patients who register in the application could book a slot for the doctor’s consultation through computer or mobile phones. You could also book for your relatives or friends as a single user can book appointments for more than one person.
Such video consultations would be a boon for those who wish to stay away from the hospitals during times like these. This facility makes sure that the problems related to the health are solved within the appropriate time limit. Through telemedicine, the doctors can analyze the symptoms and prescribe treatment and medication.
QKDOC provides video consultations with doctors in general medicine, paediatrics, orthopaedics, gastro, nephrology, ENT, cardiology, Ayurveda and homeopathy. More hospitals and specializations would be added to the application in the coming days. The patients can book the available tokens after registering. Amid the novel coronavirus scare, telemedicine or video consultation is a safe method for the patients and the doctors to interact with each other.
