United Hospital has started telemedicine service for the residents of Chittagong from December 2017, says a press release. Patients can communicate with the United Hospital physicians of chosen specialty through video conference by taking prior appointment.
Patient’s previous documents of investigations and reports will be shared with the doctor through e-mail prior the tele-consultation. Continuity of care for these patients will be carried forward, when the doctors go for their weekly visit to the Chittagong centre next or when the patient visits the Dhaka hospital for a follow-up.
Anyone can call Chittagong Information Centre at +8801914001210 or United Hospital’s central appointment desk at +88029852466 to book a telemedicine appointment. United Hospital plans to expand this Telemedicine service in other cities of the country as well.
