‘‘Doctor on the Go” Revolution Ready To Change The Reality of Healthcare by @Guneet_B




Digital technology in healthcare is booming at a rate that no one would ever have imagined. From smartphone apps to self-monitoring healthcare devices, the healthcare delivery system has started to change for the better.

Digitization in itself, however, must not be blamed for introducing changes in how healthcare has always been traditionally delivered to patients. The digitization of healthcare is expected to and has, in fact, successfully managed to handle some of the most common problems associated with traditional healthcare delivery models – long waiting times, ever increasing cost of healthcare, shortage of trained workforce, infrastructure problems, and intrusion into patient privacy and confidentiality.
