0

BENGALURU, INDIA / ACCESSWIRE / March 11, 2024 / The healthcare sector as we know has undergone a whirlwind of changes in the past decade, driven by the undeniable force of technology, changing consumer behavior, and unprecedented global events like the COVID-19 pandemic. The global boost of high-speed internet has not only altered consumer behavior in general but has also greatly impacted how individuals seek and use health-related information. This changing scenario has also given rise to innovative healthcare solutions. The advent, of telemedicine, a concept inconceivable without the seamless connection offered by the internet, is one of them.

Telemedicine is not an alien concept. It has been used since the convenience of being able to consult a doctor through any other medium apart from a physical visit was made available- like through letters, phone calls, and telegrams to start with. It is only in the past decade that it has become a fixture of mainstream healthcare delivery. The COVID-19 global pandemic undoubtedly played a significant role in the heightened pace of adoption of this concept. According to a Rock Health Report published in February 2023, four in five people have used a telemedicine service at least once.

Tech-savvy customers these days are conveniently using a plethora of telemedicine services like scheduling blood tests at home, online doctor consultations, online medical certificates, or attending home workouts and therapy sessions. According to GlobalMed report, 74% of millennials prefer the convenience and immediacy of teleconsultations to in-person appointments. The ability to save money and travel time and avoid long queues at doctor’s clinics are a few of the main reasons why millennials prefer teleconsultation over traditional options.

The concept of telemedicine has not only made accessing healthcare services easier for the consumer but also reduced the heavy burden of infrastructure and service for the service providers. With severely low doctor-to-patient ratio in most of the developing countries across the world, shortage of proper healthcare facilities, infrastructure, and healthcare professionals and inflation have resulted in making people see the beneficial sides of Telemedicine.

Telemedicine also bridges geographical gaps and provides the convenience of time-saving as well as access to qualified doctors to people living even in remote and regional areas. Now accessing a good doctor is not just about being able to visit them physically but just knowing how to reach them digitally. Various surveys done across the globe also support this theory, according to a McKinsey report of February 2022 based on research conducted the previous year found that 60% of patients found telemedicine more convenient than in-person health appointments. Interestingly, the same report also found that 52.5% of clinicians believe they deliver more effective treatment and follow-ups via teleconsultation. One of the reasons supporting this theory is the trends identified by the American Academy of Neurology which states that only 5% of virtual healthcare appointments result in the need for an in-person appointment.

The question that arises here is what led to this sudden boom of telemedicine. Yes! The COVID-19 global pandemic has been one of the driving forces but the internet boom, more disposable income, increasing awareness, and desirability of ‘best-in-class’ healthcare service, facilities, and professionals for ourselves and our loved ones, are amongst the other reasons for the advent of telemedicine. The same GlobalMed report that highlighted how much millennials prefer telemedicine also identified a growth of 44% in telemedicine adoption from 2015 to 2019. WHO has also recognized the power of telemedicine with its landmark reports, including “Telemedicine: Opportunities and Developments in Member States” (2010) and the “Guideline on Digital Interventions for Health System Strengthening” (2019), showcasing the significance of digital interventions in shaping robust healthcare systems globally.

These surveys and reports are likely an indication of where this concept of telemedicine is headed and undoubtedly this concept is here to stay. Though most healthcare services are now smoothly delivered online, there are still no clear guidelines and standardization for the issuance of medical certificates in most countries. This uncertainty of legality around the issuance of medical certificates has left those who are looking for a genuine medical certificate service for certain health statuses in dilemma and clueless. They are mostly not sure whom to rely on for a genuine and convenient medical document and are left with the only option of waiting in long queues outside of the doctor’s cabin or hospital to figure out a doctor who will be able to attend to them, and then finally attest their document, making getting a genuine medical certificate a long and ‘full of uncertainty’ process.

With the telemedicine boom, most countries, are now attempting to clarify the role and limitations of doctors attending to patients w.r.t online and providing consultations. As per the medical guidelines, If a doctor is convinced, they can go the extra mile to issue a medical certificate online after understanding the complete case of the patient. Some companies facilitate all types of medical certificates online by connecting patients with certified Doctors abiding by WHO & HIPPA guidelines. The basic requirements for a medical certificate to be valid include that it should have a doctor’s signature, registration number, and seal, proper details of the patient and their medical condition, and the medical certificate should also be addressed to the organization it is being submitted.

Medical Certificates are very private documents, consequently, there is a need to follow the concept of doctor-patient confidentiality ensuring a patient’s privacy. Before providing a required medical certificate, a doctor must clarify and understand the facts of the medical case. Doctors need to keep in mind their legal and professional rules and responsibilities while issuing medical certificates. In addition, it must be honest, to the point, and not misleading; a registered medical practitioner should only sign and seal the certificate that they completely believe to have addressed the accurate diagnosis of the patient’s condition.
