Week 1

Virtual clinics support long-distance patient and clinician contact, diagnosis, care, follow-up, monitoring, and education by utilizing information and communication technology (ICT). The virtual clinic also provides a cost-effective service that contributes to universal health coverage (UHC) by providing patients with access to quality health care regardless of their geographical location. This approach is more beneficial for those who live in cities or have difficulty moving from their homes to hospitals or clinics.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, more strain was placed on the healthcare system and its ability to provide health care services to patients, particularly those who required regular follow-up and monitoring for chronic health conditions (e.g., specialty care, diabetes, etc.).

As a result, the Pandemic founded an undefined need for healthcare services to be delivered not only outside of the health care facility but also remotely.
