Primary Care & Early Detection
This section of the patient’s journey includes simple and compact devices that general physicians can use to give a quick diagnosis of various conditions, as well as telemonitoring devices that allows physicians to communicate with the patient at home or in certain cases for physicians to get advice from other specialists. It enables the patient’s primary physician to detect various conditions early, before triaging patients with clinically significant conditions to the hospital for necessary intervention.
