“Rather than waiting an average of one hour for an office visit that lasts about seven minutes with the doctor, who typically spends the time looking at a keyboard rather than the patient, why aren’t we doing many office visits with secure video connects or even Skype and FaceTime? And having real face time“
About a decade ago I asked myself a very similar question. Taking the Japanese approach to work (If one can do it, I can do it. If no one can do it, I must do it) we launched 3G Doctor and since 2006 for the inclusive cost of £35 we’ve made 24×7 informed consultations with registered Doctors available to any adult with a 3G Video Mobile in the UK or Ireland.
