Are you thinking of having a second medical opinion?
The IT Revolution has brought immense wealth of benefits to the world. It has made the world smaller and borders, irrelevant. Every health consumer today has access to global options of health services and across-the-border medical opinions.
However, even with a plethora of web dictionaries and Ask-a-Doctor sites, no defined system is put in place to protect the welfare of both the consumer and the health practitioner. This poses a health hazard to consumers who run the risk of misinterpreting medical opinions and terminologies.
Document-Based Professional Opinion (DBPO) seeks to fill this niche. It utilizes digital technology to translate analogue data to digital copies and Internet technology to transmit these data over the web space for another physician to interpret. DBPO opens a wide spectrum of choice for the consumer.
