It is no secret that the spread of Covid-19 across the world has changed numerous things in our daily routine. Almost every facet of life has been impacted by the growing threat of the virus, including the way we eat and drink, the way we travel, work, explore and socialize. The healthcare services have also changed, witnessing a massive shift in focus at the ground level.
The social distancing norms and other precautionary measures have had implications for the healthcare system, just like any other industry. According to the healthcare practitioners at AMRI Hospitals, the use of telemedicine services has increased due to the ongoing pandemic at a decent rate. The people are preferring to stay at home and avail the services without taking any undue risks.
According to a recent study, the virtual visits of the patients have increased on a larger scale and the use of technology has satisfied the people. This transformation will change the way healthcare services are delivered even in the post-Covid-19 world.
Many healthcare systems have moved to mobile apps to assist other patients requesting for a specialist. According to the experts, Covid-19 is not going anywhere for some time which makes it important for administrations to deal with this untoward situation in an appropriate way.
The silver lining about the recent events will be the usage of data in the coming years. It has the potential of making a difference between life and death. Moreover, the collaboration of private and public centres will set new benchmarks and help cope with epidemics in a better way in the future, say medical practitioners at AMRI Hospitals.
The growing awareness and improvement in health systems will help developing countries like India. The only thing that remains to be seen is the approach of authorities post Covid-19 pandemic.
