- Changing the roles of patients in the treatment.
Digital transformation makes patients more active in the treatment process nowadays. Earlier, the person had to fix an appointment with the doctor while seeking treatment for an ailment. He used to follow the instructions and administer the drugs prescribed.
There are various platforms that help patients get their medications easily. No need of long waits outside the doctors’ cabin, no hustle and bustle. They simply have to go to some websites and book for appointments with the doctor available according to their needs.
With digitization, patients go prepared by doing online research. They match the symptoms and conditions. They talk to others who developed similar symptoms or problems.
- Patients have a better accessibility through digitization
The availability of the data is humongous, and it is increasing with every passing day. The days are gone when medical information was limited to journals, and it was restricted to limited forums.
Earlier, patients were disclosed information on a need basis only.
The digital revolution removes all the secrecy. Every bit of information is available to everyone at a click. People can find everything they wish by hitting a button. They can compare drugs and find a better alternative.
And it is all possible without spending a dime!
- Digitization helps more communication channels
We have websites for everything today and the pharma industry uses it vitally now. Almost every good hospital will have their website and other web presence on the internet to help the patients communicate better with the hospital. Technology has reduced the wait to stand in long lines, get their checkup done. With digitization people can chat with hospital executives from anywhere in the world. Medicine Delivery Applications have helped people get their medicines delivered at their doorsteps now.
Even hospitals and doctors have access to their patients’ medical records which in turn helps them to easily cure and understand the origination of their patients’ diseases and get the cure easily.
Thus, digital India, an initiative taken by our honourable prime minister is helping people in India and across and specially to the pharma sector boosting its economy and health line of our country.
