World-wide diagnosis

World-wide diagnosis

The first digital hospital in Turkey is pushing boundaries in the health sector. 3D hologram nurses welcome isitors and issue each patient with a digital card, which means that misdiagnosis and incorrect treatment are reduced. Important documents can be quickly and easily sent to other hospitals. Moreover, cameras record x-rays and the like so that the images can be seen via the Internet, democratising diagnosis.

Why it matters

Improving technology means that pioneering treatments are more widely known about and information can be shared more readily. Will this mean receiving the right care and finding out about new developments in healthcare becomes easier?

The Doctor is in

Following on the heels of WebMd and other medical diagnosis websites, patients are now turning to the internet to look for answers about which type of surgery or cosmetic procedure is right for them; and are now finding it easier to go online for advice from real physicians. The patients describe their issue, fill out a brief medical history, and upload pictures of the area they want treated.  Within 24 hours, they receive a response from a local surgeon offering their suggestion and what it will cost. Then, at the patient’s leisure, they respond and set up a face-to-face appointment. Each online consultation costs $50; when an appointment has been agreed, the site allows both parties to swap contact information.
