Worriless at Your Fingertips

There are always some days when my headache came worse. But again, it’s just a small matter. On days when the tiring flu came, I will just grab the Panadol, tissues on ready and hot soup to fill up the tummy. Sometimes it will be okay but most of the time it becomes worse, yet I usually ignore it. It’s not that I don’t care about my body but mountains of work are always waiting for me.

There’s a day when I took the courage to go see a doctor.

That’s when I decided to just lie down and sleep. The clinics were far from my area, so I had to drive there. The price was quite pricey, considering that maybe I just had flu or migraine. To top the icing on the cake, the waiting kept me tired and I had more works coming. That’s just not what I needed.

One day, I came across a website, Babylon Health. I was wondering what it was about and the first thing that caught my eye is “to put an accessible and affordable health service in the hands of every person on earth.” I thought to myself and downloaded the app.

I tapped on “check a symptom” and answers a few questions before it suggested a consultation. It could be done on the phone or a video call. Cool, is it? Save my time and my body too!

The consultation is like a regular check with the doctor at the clinic and I felt comfortable, knowing that I could check my health at the comfort of my home. Soon after consultation, a video of it was available on my Babylon app, in case I had forgotten anything. I also received a short text from the doctor that summarized his findings on my health and some bits of advice. If I needed a prescription, it will be sent within the hour to my local pharmacy. Everything was done at my fingertips and I never felt relieved, knowing my condition and still can do my works.
