Do remote consultations work?

The chances are, if you ask one of your doctor friends whether they treat their close family and friends over the phone, the answer would be “yes”.

oDoc is a way that lets us all have access to high quality care just as conveniently.

Phone consultations are very much like the doctor consultations you have experienced already.

Your doctor would ask you your age, allergies and previous conditions.

You would then discuss the symptoms you have been experiencing, for how long and whether those symptoms are getting better or worse.

In the event the doctor feels they don’t have the information necessary to treat you, they will inform you that a physical examination is required and to visit a doctor at a clinic or hospital.

Doctors are not in any way incentivised to somehow make a diagnosis on oDoc, as doctors receive the same fee from oDoc that they would for a physical visit on oDoc regardless of whether a diagnosis is made or not.

The American Medical Association has found that nearly 75% of regular doctor visits can be handled effectively through video or audio consultations.

In fact, in a meta-analysis in of over 90 peer-reviewed clinical trials conducted by Cochrane – a leading global collective of medical researchers – telemedicine was found to be effective or similar outcomes as face-to-face visit.

This form of healthcare delivery has gained global acceptance and is in wide use in countries including the US, the UK, India, Indonesia, the UAE and Rwanda.
