Based on the innovations that are related to medical devices or techniques that can be used by healthcare providers, upon the onset of the covid-19 virus many individuals began to resort to a more digital aspect of healthcare, do you believe that resorting to a digital way of services for healthcare has caused more of a hinderance or more access to healthcare?

I think it has improved access, even if only marginally. Lots of individuals had difficulties with access to healthcare from a physical standpoint in addition to the systemic and socioeconomic hinderances they faced. Allowing for telehealth measures increases access for those that physically had difficulties meeting with and speaking to their providers, in addition to those that no longer feel safe/comfortable going in-person due to being high-risk. If anything, this should continue to improve healthcare by improving accessibility for all kinds of individuals, even once we can rid ourselves of covid.

Telemedicine is giving more access, I believe. In the age of technology, people are on their phones more than they are in a doctor's office. So since people are on the apps more, then why not create an app where people can tell their doctors what is wrong without seeing them face to face? People of today open up more to what is on their phone. Also, it is easy to unlock your phone, and tell a AI assistant your symptoms right away than having to set up a far away doctor's appointment, then drive all the way to the doctor's and have to feel uncomfortable. It makes it very easy to get medical help when you need it.
