Good health is significant, while health alone is an essential player for any country’s economy. Having a well-developed health system in a country, plays a significant role in contributing to a well functioning society/economy, regardless of the size. In order to attain a healthy future and a foremost health care system, it is mandatory to put the health and wellbeing of the populations as the centre of public policy. Back in the days, the Government of Pakistan comprised a limited resource system, where the company invested mostly in building medical colleges and universities and invested less in enhancing the health sector industry of Pakistan. The continuous negligence of the Pakistani government had put the country in a pit that was hard to climb and even harder to fill. One of the prime reasons for the country’s flawed health system, as per a number of researches was the tremendously high birth rate. Initially, the country’s prime focus was more on building more health-oriented buildings, rather than taking care of the ultimate goal; the health care sector of Pakistan.
However, in today’s ever-evolving technological world, the country has made some remarkable enhancements in bringing the health sector industry where it is today. Over the years, the government has invested a lump sum of money in training its medical professionals and building institutes that comprise professional trainers for providing professional technical training. These professionals are instead the well-known professors and doctors who have signed up to give utmost training in various institutes or have positioned themselves in the top leading hospitals of Pakistan along with the inauguration of a number of top private clinics.
In today’s technological world, Pakistan has paced itself to give the country the foremost technological health enhancements that would put forth even bigger and better health consequences. The technological advancements in the health care sector in Pakistan have been a life saviour for millions of patients, contributing significantly to the quality of life. Let us talk about some of the main enhancements in the health care sector of Pakistan:
Moving one step further is the invention of various healthcare digital apps, which have contributed extremely to the easiness and convenience in people’s lives. The apps have the motive to provide telehealth services, where the customer fills in a box by the various symptoms they are facing. A health care professional on reading the symptoms provides the patient with the prescriptions. And Voila! That is all it takes! Having such apps in Pakistan makes it quite evident that the country is not far behind before it corners another milestone. Some of the apps that should definitely be on your phone, and highly recommend you are:
