“He who has health has hope; and he who has hope, has everything”
In matters of health it is said that ‘Prevention is better than cure’. We all know how true this statement is, and it is always better to take early precautionary measures to avoid health problems. In case, one gets unwell, the chances of getting cured are better when the symptoms of the disease are diagnosed and treated in the initial stages itself.
But in today’s fast paced lives that we live, where our each second counts, we often don’t get the luxury of ample time to focus solely on our health issues. When we notice minor symptoms, we tend to ignore them till we can find free time to go a health professional for consultation.
At that point, the whole cumbersome process of searching for a competent doctor, booking an appointment, retrieving our old medical records from bundles of files tucked away in some unreachable corner starts. After all this hard work, once the old records are found, its a herculean task to carry along these bulky reports to the doctors office.
This unwanted burden increases our stress level further during the times when we are already reeling under the anxiety caused by our health problem. Even to check and compare one single health parameter, the doctor has to go through several pages in different files. This is time consuming and irritating as well.
In such moments, we often wonder how nice it would be to have an assistant who would take care of all these unnerving tasks for us and we could just concentrate with single-minded focus on getting back to our normal healthy self.
Now, this wish of yours has been fulfilled with the help of information technology. There is eKincare- an app that will happily work as your personal medical assistant. It will effectively bridge the gap between you and your doctor.

Why I decided to download and start using this app :
Recently, I was witness to a difficult dilemma faced by a colleague of mine. This person had recently got transferred from Delhi to Chennai. His family members were still in Delhi and he stayed alone in Chennai. He had a history of high blood pressure and heart disease, so he always kept his medical files with him. But on one of his journeys back from home, he forgot his medical file at Delhi. Co-incidentally, on the next day itself, he developed high BP problem and had to consult the doctors but proper prescription of treatment was not possible without checking his previous medical records. Even the courier services couldn’t have transported his records within a few hours. Luckily, one of his relative in Delhi got the idea of scanning and sending the reports through e-mail, thus, he could be given proper treatment on time. But that was indeed a very cumbersome task.
If he had his records digitized and consolidated at one place which could be accessed from anywhere, he could have been saved from a lot of trouble and he needn’t worry about always carrying his bulky files or about forgetting to carry them.
These days , with the rise of chronic diseases, regular body, dental and vision checks can help find problems before they start. With the help of this app, problems can be detected early and chances of treatment and cure are better.
So, make use of the opportunity to ensure good health for your own self, your family members and also your employees.
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
