Years of doctor visits, health checkups, various medical and dental treatments, etc. leaves one with mounting paperwork. Saving and filing so much of information properly is a lot of work. Quite often, when we want to look up for a previous health record, we are unable to locate it, because the information and paperwork is scattered all over.
Internet has virtually made the world very small. A few clicks on your smart phone and you have access to almost any information within seconds. The medical world is also a part of it, helping both doctors and patients connect via digital channel to provide and retrieve medical help and information, respectively. Omihub – an Online Medical Information portal is one such channel that strives to lessen the gap between the doctors and patients by serving as a platform where patients can associate with the right doctor for their collective welfare.
With the doctor-patient ratio in India lower than WHO (World Health Organisation) prescribed limit of 1:1000, the physical availability of the physicians is a lot lesser than what it is supposed to be. Due to unavailability of the doctors, the patients have no choice but to resort to internet to seek information and remedies for their ailment.
Every human being needs a doctor, right from birth till their last breath. And this need increases as we grow older. However, with the advancement of internet it is seen that many people search for treatments and remedies online. According to doctors, this is a dangerous approach and can backfire. It is always advisable to contact a specialist for your health problem and not be a doctor yourself.
