Technology and its contribution in enhancing work-life balance for healthcare professionals across India
Hidoc Dr. is India’s most comprehensive doctor networking platform where more than 8 lakh doctors from all over India come together to discuss, consult and exchange ideas
Work-life balance… an idea that has gained prominence in the corporate world in the last few years. Today, people across the globe understand that there needs to be an equilibrium between the hours they clock at the office and the time they spend with their family and themselves, doing things that makes them happy. The last couple of years, especially the COVID-19 pandemic, has made us all realise how valuable our personal life is.
However, there is one sector that is struggling to achieve this balance. And that is the healthcare sector. Our doctors work day in and day out to ensure our safety and well-being. The last two years have made us realise that healthcare professionals are the real heroes. But how do they achieve their work-life balance? Ready on call 24*7, how do the medical professionals take out their much-needed ‘me’ time?
The answer is through technology. Utilising technology to provide online platforms where they can manage aspects of their work with the least hassle, can go a long way in helping them achieve their work-life balance. And this is exactly what Hidoc Dr. aims to achieve. It is India’s most comprehensive doctor networking platform where more than 8 lakh doctors from all over India come together to discuss, consult and exchange ideas.
So, how does this work? Let’s take an example. Initially, when a doctor received a complex case, he would refer his patient to a specialized hospital (within or outside the city) for a second opinion. Getting an appointment would take time. The patient would have to physically travel there, explain everything to that doctor and then come back and share the same with the current doctor, The doctors too would need to be in constant touch to ensure the well-being of the patient. But today with Hidoc, the doctor can simply post about the complex case and get a second opinion within minutes.
Not only this, with more than a million case studies available online, doctors now have access to the most comprehensive data. Hidoc Dr. offers exhaustive information through case studies, clinical trials, articles, journals, and medical calculators in one window with just a click of the mouse. Powered by artificial intelligence, one can easily access the most specialized information in more than 40 fields of medicine. Previously, where collecting such inclusive information was difficult and expensive, it can now be accessed through Hidoc Dr. in a few minutes for free!
Hidoc Dr. has implemented the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) protocol, which makes data storage and security the topmost priority. Doctors can share and store information on this platform without compromising on safety.
It is no wonder that Hidoc Dr. has become the number one app for doctors in such a short time. It is one thing to have technology at our disposal and another to smartly utilize it to serve others. Our doctors are the backbone of our existence and their well-being is our concern. We need to ensure that they too get the much-required time for themselves.
Hidoc Dr. endeavor to contribute in every way they can to help the healthcare professionals achieve and enhance their work-life balance.
