Whether one is a working professional, a home maker, a retired person or a young child – each one of us need medical attention once in a while. Health is indeed a priority, especially when it concerns ourselves or our loved ones.
I am travelling for the next five days and have to leave for airport soon. Yesterday, my father was advised a knee replacement surgery. My father understands the procedure but not very sure whether he should go ahead with the surgery or not. I would like to discuss the symptoms and have a second opinion from a doctor. I wish I could have a convenient and hassle free medical consultation!
My idea of convenience in healthcare
When I suffer from a healthcare problem, I want to understand the reasons of my condition and need a doctor to listen and advice about the best possible medical treatment regarding the same. For such a dialogue with my doctor, the time and energy spent on travel and waiting queue at a hospital is mind boggling.
To me, convenience is receiving reliable medical advice by a doctor on click of a button in today’s era.
Is there anyone who understands?
Yes. We, at GenieDoc, understand the problems of busy working people who have to seek consultation for their parents or their kids or even themselves. We enable access to healthcare with no travel hassles, no waiting queues and no geographical constraints.

How is the experience of other doctors and patients consulting on Geniedoc?
“I contacted an Orthopaedician through Geniedoc.com for discomfort in my left knee. I was initially apprehensive about taking medical advice online through video chat without meeting in person. However, after I explained the symptoms in detail to the doctor, he was quick to diagnose the problem with my left knee and prescribed some tests/x-rays and exercises. The video call lasted for about 10-12 minutes and the doctor uploaded the prescription within 20 minutes thereafter on Geniedoc.com. The entire process lasted for about 30 minutes. I did not have to visit any clinic or hospital and wait for my turn. There was no need for me to take time out of my busy schedule during work hours. Geniedoc.com saved me lot of time. This call was done at 9 PM at my convenience. All the best Geniedoc.com!”, testifies a candid patient from Gurgaon.
“I was excited for the first-of-its-kind video consultation. I found it quick, hassle free, satisfying and less time consuming for both the patients and the doctors. Looks to be a promising preposition for future”, shares Dr Ravi Sauhta, Chief Consultant in Orthopaedic Surgery at Gurgaon
“My first experience of teleconferencing with the patient has been really good and it will help the patients a lot.

Global trends in healthcare delivery
The idea of telemedicine is picking up. For example, In US, private employers and insurers are increasingly paying for telemedicine and China is spending billions on health-care reform with a focus on telemedicine. (Source: The Economist).
In US, a new bill CONNECT for Health Act, is not only expected to save the federal government $1.8 billion but also boost telemedicine and strengthen the patient-physician relationship using technology. (Source: Computerworld)
The concept of telemedicine is a popular one in many countries. Besides, it is the most upcoming healthcare trend in those nations where it has not been utilised so far.
