What is tele-consulting?
Nowadays people usually seek treatment by talking on the phone or consulting a doctor through video-calling about a mild health complaint, but in reality the process of tele-consulting is different. Dhiren Shah, director of Sims Hospital, says just asking over the phone is not consulting. For this, the patient has to take a doctor's appointment first and give all the details of his previous report to the doctor. After studying the report, the doctor contacts and treats through video-calling or other means. A prescription for the drug is then also officially sent to him.

Ahmedabad Family Physician Dr. According to Pragnesh Vachharajani, if there is a general fever or other complaint, people seek treatment by talking on the phone. Thus for consulting Rs. Fees ranging from Rs 200 to Rs 1,000 are being charged. Prior to Corona, this type of tele-consulting was non-existent, with only 5 patients receiving tele-consulting based treatment in the previous week. But given the current time, only 5 to 7 patients a day can be treated by talking on the phone. On the other hand, in a corporate hospital, 10-15 patients are treated daily by tele-consulting.

Hiral Shah, President, Surat Medical Association, says that in tele-consulting, it is very important to have accurate and proper communication between the patient and the doctor so that they can understand each other. Patients are taking guidance on the phone for problems like general body aches, fever. However once the patient is primarily guided, they are also advised to show up face to face if needed. The important thing is that earlier when calling for guidance on the phone did not count any kind of charge, but now with the change of time some patients are asking about the charge.

This method may prove to be suitable for follow-up,
says Nimish Parikh, a dentist in Rajkot. However, only mild disease treatment is possible in tele-consulting. Chronic diseases such as diabetes can lead to complaints of hypertension.

Moreover, at the village level, this method has less scope, due to which it has many limitations. Due to which its proportion will remain masculine.
