To help women, children seek medical advice for gynaecological and paediatric issues from safety of their homes
With strict restrictions on movement and safety concerns forcing people to stay at home, patients needing medical care are also finding it hard to access a doctor. In an attempt to address these concerns, Rainbow Children’s Hospital & BirthRight by Rainbow has thrown open video consultation facilities to help women and children seek medical advice for gynaecological and paediatric issues from the safety of their homes.
The development comes a few days after the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare issued guidelines on the practice of telemedicine, giving much-needed statutory cover to health practitioners offering remote care in India.
“While the restrictions on movement are much-needed to control the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is essential for healthcare providers to find ways to ensure uninterrupted medical care to patients. Technology has given us viable alternatives to address the medical concerns of a number of patients remotely through video consultations and we want to assure our patients that we are available for them in these challenging times. Our doctors will continue to offer video consultations to as many patients as possible until the outbreak is controlled. Only patients needing physical examination or those with a healthcare emergency will be asked to visit the hospital,” said Dr Ramesh Kancharla, Chairman and Managing Director, Rainbow Children’s Hospital & BirthRight by Rainbow.
Combining the diligence of its ground staff and the advancement in technology, Rainbow Children’s Hospital has made the process of getting a consultation with doctors, as seamless and easy as possible, while not compromising on the precautions that must be maintained during this time.
