For a long time now India has been reeling under a healthcare crisis. To a great extent this has been largely responsible owing to the ever expanding population and a dearth of doctors and proper infrastructure.
As we cannot curb the problem of doctors or of population overnight, we must find ways of mitigating the problem with the existing resources. One of the best ways of doing so is to provide help to the doctors who are working day and night to provide quality healthcare. If they have the proper infrastructure, then more number of people will be benefited.
However, such measures require financial assistance and this is why financial institutions such as NBFCs (Non Banking Financial Institutions) have come up with what is known as physician loans. Doctors can use these loans in a number of creative ways, a few of which are as follows -
Electronic Health Records
Most of the patient records in our country is on paper and very poorly maintained. Moreover, they are not detailed to the extent which they should ideally be. This is usually witnessed when a patient is transferred from one hospital to the other and the only record that is available is the discharge summary.
If electronic health records are use, then it will cut a lot of maintenance costs which are usually incurred in the upkeep of the patient records. It will also speed up the healthcare provided and as the past medical history will be readily available, the care provided will also be better.
There is an app for almost everything today, then why not use one for medical purposes? A medical app will help doctors keep track of the condition of their patients and also examine their reports instantly.
