It is not the first time that the teleconsultation on our page. Technology has already been launched in different Spanish cities, having relative success. People like to talk to their doctor without having to move from home. The remote healthcare It is a possibility that is very convenient to solve fast queries or that do not require additional tests.
The idea was put to the test months ago. Specifically, several governments of Spanish autonomous communities launched a program that allowed patients to create teleconsultations with their GPs using the mobile phone and an application designed for this purpose. It was a success, since the electronic means available allowed to talk to doctors using the Internet, while at the same time the necessary prescriptions or treatments were inserted directly into the databases of the health system.
Maybe the system is for the moment somewhat limited, although on the other hand you have to keep in mind that work continues to improve, with new possibilities for patients to receive the best care.
The system used to execute teleconsultations is quite easy. First, we need to be users of the platforms that Systems of health have put for this type of applications. We install the program that is necessary, and We request an Internet consultation with our GP. We will be given a certain time when we will have to be available to carry out the conversation.
Once the time comes, the necessary software is executed (either on the mobile phone or on the computer) and We will have the possibility to talk to our doctor, exposing what happens to us and receiving the corresponding treatment. In the event that we need a prescription in order to get medicines, these are stored in the databases of the health system of our autonomous community. As soon as we go through a pharmacy with our health card, we will have the documents available.
Teleconsultations have different types of advantage, although the most obvious is comfort: without leaving home we can talk to the doctor, and have the prescriptions we need on our health card. Y this saves time and money, in the case that we have to move, quite considerable.
As well it is possible to improve the quality of life of patients because they will not have to travel and can receive medical attention at home. Of course, it is essential to have enough technology to establish communication: a compatible device, an Internet connection and some free minutes.
Many users have already said that teleconsultation is a service that has arrived to stay. Not only because of its advantages, but because facilitates a simple procedure such as going to the doctor.
We have discussed the consultations via the Internet with our GP. But that does not mean that this type of services can also be sent to other sectors. The idea could become quite popular.
