In Mexico, the digital divide is one of the most relevant issues, but experts point out that when life returns to normal, the digital divide will continue to be adopted.
In Mexico, before COVID-19, since there was little exploration in this field, telemedicine was not an alternative method suitable for the population. However, after medical emergencies and closures, this technological solution has made a leap, and after a year of more attention, it seeks to be an option to narrow the gap in medical coverage.
During this year, the pandemic background is critical to the development of this technology. One example is the online consultation platform Doctoralia, which provided users with 2,000 doctors in March 2020. Now, according to Ricardo Moguel, general manager of the Mexican company, they have more than 10,000 professionals, and in January this year, they appointed more than 11,000 positions.
Mogle said: “We have seen changes in the way people get health at home, and changed their habits based on breaking boundaries for counseling.” He emphasized the fact that a patient in Chiapas came from Mexico City. Of doctors get care, this is an example. . He emphasized: “Experts can provide services to people no matter where they are.”
