Telemedicine platform Doxy.me stand to make a huge impact in increasing access to doctors in rural PNG.
I have been writing and researching about telemedicine on my blog since 2007 and just today I Googled around looking for a free telemedicine platform and came across Doxy.me. (www.doxy.me). Its so easy to use and has a free version that even doctors in countries like PNG can use at very minimal cost. I believe that this platform will make a huge impact, in fact a giant leap in improving access to doctors in the developing world.
It is is only a matter of time before it takes off in countries like PNG where there are so few doctors and a very large rural population that is unable to have access to a doctor.
I predict once in use, community health workers, nurses or HEOs will use this service to schedule doctors consultation clinics and they will be able to manage patients without referring patients to major district hospitals where it can be expensive for rural patients.
Thank you creators of Doxy.me. I am already using it and enjoying it. This is what I was looking for!
