Thanks to a new website and the readily available technology we are all using every day, you can have one. In fact, your customers can now see a doctor in their lounge room, their office, or while they are out and about by visiting Doctors on Demand

Doctors on Demand

The rapidly evolving technology industry and improved access to internet services is producing a shift in the traditional doctor-patient relationship. Busy time poor professionals, working families and longer working lives are making it harder and harder for the general population to consult with their GP. However, the eHealth revolution is helping transform modern medical services into convenience based, consumer driven models that enable patients to function more like a customer, with the ability to choose when and how they communicate with a doctor.

Doctors on Demand is a website and mobile App that provides users with access to an online Medical Centre. Patients can book an immediate video-consultation, or ‘Telehealth” appointment with any of our doctors who are online or request a video appointment with any of our doctors who are offline. All the user requires to access our service is a webcam enabled computer, tablet or mobile phone. Patients pay $60 for a 15-minute video-consultation, which is roughly the same as the out of pocket expense incurred by a general patient consulting with an “in rooms” doctor, without the need for taking time off work, parking and sitting in a waiting room.

QuickScript is another convenient service offered by Doctors on Demand for $25 that allows users to request a repeat prescription for their regular ongoing medication by simply completing an online questionnaire.  The system is also engineered to be inclusive of all doctors and all pharmacies so that patients can register their regular GP and preferred pharmacy details to collect any prescriptions.

The developers created the site after witnessing the difficulty rural and remote patients have in accessing primary healthcare services. Their goal is to make health care more accessible and provide the ultimate patient experience by using technology to remove some of the traditional barriers that separate patients from doctors.
