Dr Maya is an app for patients to download and communicate with their chosen doctor. Maya Doc is a doctor who is registered on the Maya system. Dr Maya acts like a receptionist + Nurse + Doctor in Emergency.
When a patient registers as a user of Dr Maya the app will collect information about the patient (name, age, address) exactly like a receptionist and then ask them to describe 3 symptoms, just like a nurses or GP. The Dr. Maya app will then advise the patient whom they should consult: a pharmacist; "Ask a Nurse"; contact a doctor (calls will be to the doctor you have named when you register); book an appointment (calls will be diverted to a booking system or will be linked to hospital computer system). Based on what symptoms the patient has reported Dr Maya will refer them to the relevant specialist (cardiology, neurology or orthopaedics etc).
This will save doctors and medical staff money, time and help prevent contagiously ill patients from visiting hospitals and spreading the infection other people and health staff. The app will also systemise care: the doctor who uses Maya Dr will have to specify a treatment. The Maya app is a tool to standardise care, save money and reduce medical errors such as antibiotic mis-use and cross-infections.
Easy Sign Up
Patients download and easily register with Dr. Maya and then add the name of their preferred doctor, either a local doctor or a doctor in their home country, including that doctor's email and telephone number. If a Dr. Maya patient logs in and their symptoms suggest a serious contagious infection that patient can be quickly isolated and their doctor informed. Please note, we do not hold or record consultations, history of illness or diagnosis in our database. We maintain contact details, name, sex, telephone number, your date of birth, name of the doctor you are registered with along with your address.
Focus On Priority
Maya Doc does not initially ask for the patient's symptoms, but provides a page where doctors can enter symptoms, choose a prioritising colour (for example, red for critical, yellow for mild, green for harmless) and enter additional information. Please do not search names of disease or illness but only choose the symptoms that you experience. Our mission is to help you reduce consultation and visit to healthcare centre. Please call and speak to your doctor if necessary or if you are anxious.
One Step Short Of Consultation
Before booking an appointment a patient will log on and enter three symptoms. This is not similar to speaking to a receptionist or a nurse to book an appointment but similar to consulting a doctor. Doctors will use the combination of three or four symptoms before they decide to clinically examine or refer you to hospital. Not every doctors listen to all that you say because you often exaggerate or underplay some symptoms. They will choose some symptoms that are relevant and based on their experience and knowledge.
Once they diagnose based on history and clinical examination, they may offer treatment or refer you to consult a specialist. Dr Maya is like a junior doctor and so you don't need to answer a list of questions that are often not necessary to help differentiate "Minor from Serious illness". Maya will not offer the final diagnosis because it is not necessary to help differentiate the urgency of treatment required.
BUT HERE IS THE GOOD NEWS!
In 2013, we were bombarded by a flashing image that we could not understand and so started looking for answers. Majority of innovations, advances in knowledge and science occurred following a vision. We believe it is important not to through harmful chemicals or drugs that kill the friendly micro-organisms that have lived on earth for more than three billions of years. We must learn to "Live & Let Live" and help them fight their battle and kill superbugs.
