Value added services which clinics can offer to their patients
Posted Nov 18 2008 12:17am
Diagnostic centers which perform executive health checkups and imaging studies have become very popular in India. While they generate a lot of medical information about their patients, much of this is under-utilised. It often ends up in the patient's medical file - to lie forgotten till the next checkup. A simple value-add service these centers could offer is to upload all this data to an online PHR ( personal health record) they could create for their patients ( if they wanted one). This will allow patients to share their medical, making it much easier for them to get a second opinion, i they wanted to.
