MMSing your MD

Written By: Usree Bhattacharya on March 28, 2009 No Comment

The popular daily Hindustan Times carries a recent article on how patients in the major Indian metropolises are sending MMS‘s (Multimedia Messaging Service) for diagnoses to their doctors. Money quote:

“It reflects the changing face of the doctor-patient interaction. I’ve been sent clips of the symptoms – a kid with stomach cramps bawling in pain. Since the cramps may subside by the time you visit the doctor, a recording would work better,” says Dr. Anupam Sibal, senior paediatrician and group director of hospitals services at Apollo Hospitals, who treats little Maheka.
