Not every doctor is available at every place and this becomes important especially for the rural areas. Patients who suffer from chronic diseases will be able to get a virtual ‘visit’ from the doctor living miles away at one touch. Mobile Applications will allow the doctor and patient to go ‘live’ and the services thus can be delivered virtually.
