Across all the occupations professed worldwide, the one that touches lives literally, is that of the doctors. They not only treat us with the curative property of a medicine, but bring the healing effect with their comforting touch, care, power to instil positivity, and the compassion. Though, we are grateful to the doctors every single day, the 1st of July holds special importance to express this gratitude.
Why 1st July is celebrated as the Doctor’s Day?
India first celebrated the Doctor’s Day in 1991 to pay respect to the most famous physician of the time, Dr. Bidhan Chandra Roy. It is the birth and death anniversary of the doctor who contributed a lot to the fraternity through his selfless services.
This day also honors the medical industry, its advancements and contributions, technological achievements in the field, and overall doctor’s role in bettering the lives of the people.
The journey: Doctors to digital doctor
Over the time, the advent of technology has brought a lot of changes in the way medical care is rendered to the patients. In the early days, for every sick person, the ray of hope came with a doctor with his medical kit carrying solutions for all the ailments. But now, the diseases have spread awfully and so the inventions in the medical science. Doctors have also harnessed the technology and have transformed into digital doctors by ensuring their virtual presence for the patients beyond their clinic or hospital.
In many non-emergency conditions, doctors are helping remote patients through video calls, emails, phone calls or chats bringing a new level of comfort in the way treatment is rendered and received.
Doctors bring technology with a human touch
No matter how refined the diagnostic or imaging equipment is or how many new drugs have come into existence, the key still lies in their proper use. Patients get relief only when they talk in details with their doctor about the procedure, the report, their treatment plan and the effect of the medicines. Though the technological devices can give accurate results and medicines can give quick relief, the actual healing comes with doctor’s assurance and communication with the patient. This human touch provided by the doctors is unmatched and undeniable.
The role of doctors in the digital era
The virtual world has given enough space to expand anyone’s presence. The humungous stature of the web world has practically widened the horizon of doctors where they are accessible to people in different parts of the world. It has marked a major shift from the conventional in-clinic visit to online consultations which is adding utmost convenience to the user’s experience. They can easily consult a doctor of their preference at their convenient time and get the best treatment from the comfort of their home. On the other hand, doctors are also getting patients beyond their geographical location and extending their reach. With AI, data analytics, and digital equipment, doctors are getting aid to deliver more accurate and efficient services. In such a scenario, the role of doctors is getting magnified for the betterment of human health across the world.
Doctor’s supremacy above all
The results a doctor’s experience can bring is unmatched. There are healthcare apps, devices, and plenty of online information, but the comfort and consolation a doctor can give is unmatched. Be it talking on a screen or directly visiting a doctor in the clinic, there are many things that a doctor can do with his expertise which are sometimes even unexplained.
The world will definitely move to superior technological advances and many things will change in the medical world, but the role of doctors will remain unchallenged. They are the harbinger of health, compassion, care and human touch which brings the true healing in a patient.
