  14. 14. ONLINE CONSULTATION • TRIAGE-Triage is the process of determining the priority of patients' treatments based on the severity of their condition. • This rations patient treatment efficiently when resources are insufficient for all to be treated immediately. • The term comes from the French verb trier, meaning to separate, shift or select.

  18. 18. A DECISION OF HIGHCOURT
  19. 19. Can a Doctor Give A Telephonic Consultaion? • In Indian supreme court Judgment Martin F. D’Souza vs Mohd Ishfaq (3541 of 2002) dated 17.02.2009 • Justice Markandey Katzu and G S Singhvi enlisted precautions which doctor/ Hospitals/ Nursing Homes should take: • “54(b): No prescription should ordinarily be given without actual examination. The tendency to give prescription over the telephone, except in an acute emergency, should be avoided”. • If any mishap occurs, lower courts and or the state councils can give verdict against the doctor citing the above Supreme Court judgment.
  20. 20. BMJ • hat you need to know • Check that the patient can hear and understand you, and is in a suitable place to talk • In the absence of other cues, the tone and content of speech is important • Gain information from an indirect physical examination by asking the patient to describe signs such as breathing and vital signs and rashes • Provide strong safety-netting and remember that a face-to-face consultation or home visit may be needed
  21. 21. UK & US • Up to a quarter of patient-physician interactions occur via telephone in settings such as US internal medicine and UK primary care. • 1 Telephone consultations have the potential to improve access, convenience, and choice and are the most common alternative to face-to-face consultations. • 2 Comparative studies show that patient are equally satisfied with both forms of consultation • 3 However, randomised controlled trials and time series studies show that telephone consultations do not necessarily reduce workload for clinicians.
