Three-year-old Shruti had a sore throat since morning. Her mom, Natasha, noticed it but did not worry about it. By the time Shruti came back home in the evening, she was running a 101 temperature and her sore throat had given way to a nasty cough.
The toddler was cranky and irritable. How do you think Natasha would have reacted? Ask any mom who has a little one at home and the answer is likely to be: worried and anxious. Hundreds of questions go on in their heads including how will the baby cope, what medicines should be given, what doctor will be available in the night etc.
Natasha was definitely concerned but not worried or anxious. She got Shruti changed, gave her some warm soup to drink and got her settled in bed. She then sat down on the bed next to the kid and turned on her phone and logged onto the mfine app. Within minutes, she had keyed in Shruti’s symptoms - persistent cough, temperature and a runny nose. The app then allowed her to choose the hospital and the doctor that she would like to consult. Within the next 10 minutes, she was having a video chat with the pediatrician from a top hospital nearby who recommended a course of treatment for the next two days with exact doses.
Natasha’s husband picked up the medicines from the nearest pharmacy store on his way home. After one dose, Shruti settled down and dozed off. Natasha and her husband too had a good night’s sleep!
Over the next two days, Natasha felt the need to follow-up with the doctor on a couple of other things. She was able to reach out to same doctor again easily on the app and got her questions answered promptly, all the time! The doctor assured her that she could walk into the hospital for a consultation anytime for no additional cost in case she felt the need.
