Catching up with your health check-up
As most products and many services took the digital route with their availability online, health check-ups are also a part of this transition. Hospitals and healthcare providers being at the forefront to combat the pandemic continue to make our lives easier by offering home services.
Owing to this facility, with just a few clicks and calls, we can now avail basic health services at our doorstep. This saves time by cutting down travel time and is very helpful for people who are ailed or old, and face difficulty travelling. Furthermore, it may even curb the spread of the coronavirus through asymptomatic cases.
Most obviously, apart from getting tested for the virus, there is now a host of other tests that can be availed within the comfort of our homes, such as general blood tests. Testing a sample of blood can act as a peephole to one's overall health condition by revealing any discrepancies in the specimen, giving us a general idea about our overall health status.
In the battle against coronavirus where there are unprecedented instances of crests and troughs in the number of cases, visiting hospitals that house several victims of the lethal virus may possibly be very risky. Thus, by availing home service for medical tests, you can book a time to get your tests done and expect to receive this facility right at your home.
Renowned hospitals such as United Hospital Limited, Square Hospitals Limited, Evercare Hospital, and Labaid Specialized Hospital among others are providing such facilities. However, if the situation is such that you cannot avoid paying a visit to the hospital, make sure to take extra hygiene measures. Wearing masks, carrying sanitizers, and maintaining strict social distancing are just to name a few.
Furthermore, apart from medical tests, several hospitals are providing additional health services in an effort to digitise the process and make it easy for us to attain superior healthcare. Some advancements include booking appointments via apps or website, live video consultation from doctors, and options for online pharmacy.
The ongoing pandemic has compelled us to improve our healthcare system and go digital. In fact, to some extent, it has altered how we perceive the healthcare scenario of Bangladesh and enabled it to rise to its potential.
Stay well, stay safe!
