Can professional doctors prescribe medicines through video conferencing?
Is it possible and acceptable to consult doctors and take their prescriptions based solely on a video conference consultation? What are your views on this?
Health is an important issue suffered by most people amidst lockdown, so can video conference facilities provide a minor benefit to the patients? There are patients who have some viral fevers, pre and post maternity health issues, minor accidents occurred indoors, and the like. Can doctors suggest prescription and post it in WhatsApp and fees can be paid through online payment modes?
It may depend on the doctor's experience and type of health issues but when only tablets and creams can cure some health issues can they use the video conferencing method? How far can this method work? Is there any possibility for such procedures? Can it be accepted on the whole by the community? Are there any restrictions imposed on the doctors by their licensee?
This thread is raised to understand the implications only. It may or may not be true.
