Mobile Health Camps
E-Medics started its Facilitated Rural Consultations program in July 2016. In this program our Internet enabled vans visit outskirts of Islamabad. These vans are equipped with Internet facility and basic vital monitoring equipment. Doctors who are stationed at our Islamabad facility serve these vans.
Tele-consultations are significantly cheaper for patients than regular consultations, especially when transportation costs and lost income due to necessary travel is factored in for Pakistan’s rural population. In a country where average health expenditure per capita is only USD$129, even small cost savings for health expenditure have a huge impact on residents.
Teleconsultation simply means obtaining the professional opinion of a healthcare provider who is not physically present at the location where the patient and/or his primary healthcare provider are.
Teleconsultations involve real-time interaction between a remote healthcare provider and a patient and his/her medical team, usually through video-conferencing. This form of consultation allows the consulting physician to ask the patient questions directly (through an interpreter if needed) as well as discuss with the medical team regarding the case. Usually, at least one physician needs to be present with the patient at the time of consultation since some aspects of the clinical examination can only be performed by a trained physician.
E-clinics are the modern form of medical centers, initiated by E-Medics. Our E-clinics are serving the basic purpose of medical clinics. Which are well-equipped of medical technologies. There is a team of locally hired paramedics who conduct preliminary tests (Blood pressure count, Diabetes test etc.), and also help conduct and supervise the tele-consultations among patients and the doctors, online.
Our rural population in general is male dominant where women are not allowed to visit male doctors to discuss their medical conditions. Female doctors are almost nonexistent in rural areas. We have started bringing female doctors to these ladies with the help of technology. We tell the female patients to have a private tele-consultation session with the female doctors on our panel. According to our findings most of the women who are doing these private consultations have issues related to infertility, gynecology and other female related problems. We are solving a huge problem and we have observed an increase in female patients show up from past couple of months.
Education and Awareness
We believe “Prevention is better than cure” hence our focus is divided equally among preventive measures and corrective measures when it comes to Healthcare delivery. Our Medical Education and awareness activity is working alongside the Facilitated Rural Consultations Program where our on-site staff and remote doctors provide awareness to the patients being consulted.
E-medics urge to spread awareness about the importance of healthcare for each and every person, regardless of gender or class. Healthcare is a most neglected basic necessity in a country like ours, and more specifically a great fraction of women in our country do not consider their health important enough to take care of. Moreover, our rural population in general is male dominant where women are not allowed to visit male doctors to discuss their medical conditions. We are solving a huge problem and we have observed an increase in female patients show up from past couple of months.
E-medics uses seminars, conferences, training sessions and social media to educate the masses. Also, our doctors counsel the patients during consultations, this is the very reason why we have observed increased number of patients with time.
Provision of Medicines
E-medics understands the situation of pharmacies in villages, so to overcome all the risks and life threat, E-Medics provides medicines to the patient directly from the camps and E-clinics, making it easier for the villagers.
