Seattle, WA (PRWEB) September 13, 2013
Virtual doctors present a new online diagnostic tool as part of the overall telemedicine healthcare services offered by OnlineUSADoctors.
Health websites like WebMD provide consumers with a full range of health-related information, such as apps, recipes, and encyclopedias. While extremely useful, such websites ultimately fail at providing personalized, professional feedback to those struggling with specific medical health symptoms. OnlineUSADoctors.com, one of the pioneers of the virtual doctor field, presents an excellent solution to those looking for more personalized medical advice.
Online USA Doctors created a new online diagnostic tool that helps uncover underlying health conditions that typically go unnoticed until advanced.
WebMD is a comprehensive online health resource which includes a drugs and supplements portal, a health and wellness portal, a family and pregnancy portal, and a news portal. One of its most useful and popular tools is the WebMD Symptom Checker. This app allows consumers to identify their symptoms from a list, and then “diagnoses” a likely illness from the symptoms described.
While useful, this app ultimately fails as a diagnostic tool because of the subjective nature of the information provided. In the process of using the app, the consumer may forget a symptom or simply not provide a complete picture of the symptoms being experienced. Without correct information, the WebMD app cannot work, nor can it distinguish between illnesses with similar symptoms.
As an online doctor resource, OnlineUSADoctors.com offers personalized diagnostic and treatment services which reflect high professionalism and competency. Through video or phone consultations, OnlineUSADoctors.com physicians diagnose illnesses and have the freedom to order laboratory tests, prescribe medication, or make a referral to a local physician for follow-up care when necessary.
This service provides a much-needed alternative to diagnostic apps by using certified medical professionals to provide a clinical analysis of a patient’s presenting symptoms. By asking medical questions, observing by webcam, and sometimes ordering follow-up tests, OnlineUSADoctors.com physicians are able to make a thorough analysis of a patient’s medical condition and recommend effective treatment.
The virtual doctor industry presents a unique answer to the problem of skyrocketing health care and medical health insurance costs which faces the nation as it heads into a new chapter in its history. It uses phones, websites, e-mail, webcams, and other communications technologies to care for patients who are not in the same location as the medical provider. OnlineUSADoctors.com, as one of the leaders in this industry, offers comprehensive health care to its patients by providing personalized medical services, including exclusive diagnostic tools and proprietary alternative health supplements.
