Tele-Consultation is now available at your convenience to offer instant access to quality care.
Cancer patients can consult our specialists at the comfort of their own home, with an appointment made prior to the tele-consultation. Although tele-consultation has its own limitation as compared to a face-to-face consultation, this service provides an additional solution with convenience for follow-up patients.
After the appointment is confirmed, you will receive a link to connect with our medical specialist who is suited to your medical needs. The link will direct you to the video conference call where the tele-consultation takes place. The video conference call can be conducted easily via a smartphone or computer where there is access to the internet.
Price: RM 60.00 (MMCH Patient) | RM 120.00 (New Patient)
What is Tele-Consultation?
Tele-Consultation uses the edge of the internet and smartphones to allow cancer patients to consult doctors without the need to be physically present.
Is Tele-Consultation suitable for every patient?
Tele-Consultation is suitable:
- For follow-up patients who seek a second or subsequent consultation (for specific medical advice) where a first face-to-face consultation with our medical specialist has already taken place, or
- For new patients who seek general medical advice (without any reference to a person’s medical condition).
Tele-Consultation provides an additional solution with convenience for follow-up patients without the need to be physically present.
If you are seeking for a second medical opinion, our medical professional on-duty will request for a digital copy of your medical reports for preview and advise you accordingly whether this Tele-Consultation service is appropriate for your current medical needs. You may be advised to come to the hospital for a face-to-face consultation and further examination.
Is patient’s consent required for the Tele-Consultation?
Patient’s consent is required so that the patient understands the possible risks, the nature of Tele-Consultation, and his/ her rights associated with the use of this service and the processing of his/ her personal and sensitive data. Customer Service will provide you the link for the Patient’s Consent Form.
How is the diagnosis made without any physical observation being made?
Our medical specialist shall advise you to the best of his or her capability while carrying a Tele-Consultation session. However, should you be required for any tests or required for a more detailed examination, our medical specialist shall advise you accordingly.
