The concept of online medical consultation was born out of people's need for convenience and a cheaper way to make repeat visits to the doctor's for simple conditions like bronchitis, sinusitis, athlete's foot, and other non-life-threatening illnesses. Online medical consultation is also a handy service for patients who may be embarrassed by certain medical conditions and prefer to ask their doctor online instead of meeting them face-to-face.

Today, however, providers of telemedicine go far beyond remote delivery of medical care services and are operated like a fully-functional online hospital with robust patient care systems and access to globally-based medical experts. Today's online medical consultation services can now provide many if not all the services that a typical doctor's office can provide, but at a lower cost, as service can be delivered straight from the medical professional through phone or the web. One of the main benefits of getting online medical advice is that consultations and prescriptions can be made available when and where you need them, as long as you have web access.

While online consultation is no substitute for actual and physical interaction between patient and physician, it is an excellent complementary service that enables more convenient healthcare. Advanced technologies and innovative solutions make it even more convenient and possible for doctors to perform basic virtual consultations and tests remotely. Minor medical conditions like colds, ear infections, flu, insomnia, rashes, and many simple illnesses are easily treatable through online medical consultations.
