The Primary Need to Develop a Telemedicine Application
An international survey by C2 Solutions claimed that more than 3/4th of the hospital/clinic visits of 2017 in the USA were very basic which could have been conducted on phone only. Another survey concluded that instead of talking and giving a visit to the doctor, 73% wanted to give a text message while 79% wished to receive the message from their physician.

1. Real-time consultation saving lots of time and travel spending of the patient:
To book a virtual visit the patient is required to go through a questionnaire related to the symptoms and finalize the doctor from the list of specialists there. After getting an appointment one can get a real-time session with that doctor without fretting about the travel to the clinic. Moreover, the e-prescription when forwarded to a pharmacy have lesser chances of manual errors, misinterpretation of the writing and if any confusion is arising then direct communication can be established anytime with the physician and the suspicion can be cleared any moment.

The symptoms and the pic help in easily analyzing the simple problems and the required treatment plan are interpreted on the application.
