Virtual consultations and telemedicine are not new concepts in healthcare.
Thanks to the advancements in technology, especially artificial intelligence-based (AI) technology, consultations in healthcare have been virtualised during the last decade. But most people have remained reluctant to use virtual consultation due to various reasons, more importantly, because it was a “new concept” that most of us were not familiar with.
But then COVID-19 happened. We were all locked down in our houses. And this time, most people were reluctant to pay a visit to their doctor or to go to the hospital even if they needed it due to the fear of being infected by the COVID-19. For the healthcare professionals, the workload was already high and time was very precious to be spent on a patient who would not necessarily need a physical examination.
This was, unarguably, the turning point in the rise of virtual consultations, also for hair transplant consultations.
Conventional Hair Transplant Consultation vs Virtual Hair Transplant Consultation
If you are interested in having a transplant or already had a hair transplant, you may have an idea of how the conventional hair transplant consultation works. You first need to contact the hair transplant clinic or the doctor. But of course, you do not directly communicate with the doctor, you communicate with a medical consultant who facilitates the communication between you and the doctor. Then you send the pictures of your head to your medical consultant who shares these pictures with the doctor to get the personalised treatment plan for you. Ah! You also need to answer a set of medical questions on the phone or by e-mail to see if you are a suitable candidate for hair transplant or under which conditions you can have hair transplant. Then, the doctor gets back to the medical consultant about your treatment plan and the conditions. And finally, your medical consultant sends you your treatment plan and quote.
Phew! Just explaining this process was tiring, cannot imagine how time-consuming this would be in reality.
