13 We will help you find the right medical professional nearest to you. We will provide a summary of your doctors medical qualifications, registration and clinical expertise. We will point you in the direction of a real doctor not a fake or a charlatan. We will obviate the need for you to pay an unnecessary consultation fee to the doctor unless you need to see one. ©Medlinks Consulting

14 We will provide preliminary medical advice that does not replace a proper medical consultation but will help you decide if you need to see a doctor or not. We will save you the cost of spending money on quacks so you can see a real doctor instead. All this will be done to preserve your autonomy in making decisions about your treatment. ©Medlinks Consulting

15 You can send us a message through our website. In the future you can send us an SMS/text message from your mobile phone from anywhere in Nigeria in an emergency. We will answer your queries for the meagre cost of N50 per SMS/text message or for free through our website. A detailed response to your query will be sent to your phone from our doctors who are registered medical professionals working in Nigeria or abroad. ©Medlinks Consulting

16 In the future you will be able to have medical consultations over the phone with your doctor before you decide to make an appointment. We will put you in touch with doctors all over the world and let you decide how far you want to go for your treatment. You will find more information on these doctors on our website when fully set up. ©Medlinks Consulting

19 Consumers of healthcare want more control over their treatment. Healthcare as a commodity is also subject to the basic laws of economics and the demand for healthcare will keep rising The trends in information technology makes consumers better prepared to take decisions about their health. Doctors need to keep up with this trend and begin to give their patients their moneys worth. ©Medlinks Consulting

20 Telemedicine is already impacting the healthcare market worldwide but Africa still lags behind. The availability of mobile telecommunications in Africa could make up for this deficiency Medical appointments can be arranged via SMS. Patients can be given advice and directed to the right specialist via SMS. The patients autonomy is preserved because the choice to attend a clinic remains his. ©Medlinks Consulting

21 A globalized approach at tackling the healthcare problems in Nigeria can help build a private sector based healthcare system similar to that in Asian countries today. Economies of scale can drive the cost of care downwards and improve the quality of life of every citizen. Better quality of life means more involvement of the citizens in nation building as their basic needs would have been met. ©Medlinks Consulting
