Some general observations.

Most of the healthcare websites seem to favour what are called, “Telehealth consultations” – providing consultations with a healthcare provider by phone or video call. In the very nature of things, characteristic of these is that the only information or knowledge the healthcare provider ever has about the patient they are providing advice and information to, is what they get from the patient at the beginning of the consultation. This is almost certainly going be superficial, especially if the total consultation is only going to last 8 minutes, meaning that, almost certainly, the advice will be superficial.

Of course, this can be remedied if there is provision for the patient to provide information about himself or herself, or, if the practitioner takes the initiative to seek information from the patient, before the consultation takes place.

We will be seeking to locate such healthcare websites.
