In the world of instant communication, some doctors add Skype to the mix
Some boutique medical practices are offering Skype sessions with doctors as an instant communication bonus to their clients, for a price. And modern communication will likely change how all of us eventually communicate with our doctors. But, some medical experts are concerned that it could be destructive to practicing good medicine.
One boutique startup in Philadelphia trying out this Skype approach is R-Health. For a $79 monthly subscription, the company offers family doctor services, plus some modern accessories.
With R-Health, you can Skype or email your doctor from the comfort of your home or office. And although you have to buy a separate insurance policy to cover major costs - like an operation - it does sound pretty convenient.
