Understand the cause
O Minha Vida is the largest health and wellness portal in Brazil with a high impact: 8 out of 10 users passed here in 2014 . More than 20 million people access My Life every month for a variety of reasons: whether it is to learn more about diagnosing diabetes, understanding how cancer treatment works, finding out the symptoms of depression or knowing how to care for a Alzheimer, among other infinite questions, the reasons range from the most prevalent to the rarest, from the most simple to the most complex. However, the goal of all who seek us is only one: to better inform about some health issue.
Many care about the quality of life but, unfortunately, access to health in Brazil is uneven . In Brazil, the differences begin in the number of doctors available to the population. There are 2 doctors for every 1000 inhabitants. In England, system considered model, are 2.7 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. In addition, the distribution of physicians in the Brazilian territory is not homogeneous. There are 2.67 doctors per 1000 inhabitants in the Southeast region, while in the North region it is only 1 doctor for 1000 people. In many states the numbers are well below that. In addition to the shortage of professionals, there are deficiencies in the agility of care, availability of treatments and infrastructure for those who depend exclusively on SUS: about 75% of the Brazilian population.
My Life has as its main purpose to improve the quality of life of the Brazilian population. A purpose that inspires us in the daily search for innovation, for solutions. One is to facilitate people's access to more health and well-being. That is why My Life is promoting the first Online Health Effort, an innovative initiative to celebrate National Health Day, celebrated today, August 5. Our dream is to spread health to whoever and wherever you are. In the absence of a hospital to conduct physical assistance efforts, we have an internally developed Q & A platform, Ask the Expert. A single question answered will already make a difference in one's life.
The objective of the Online Health Effort is to gather together thousands of physicians on an online platform for a single cause, which is to promote more health for the Brazilian population. Without queues, without physical barriers, without distance limitations , we will have the technology to approach. On one side, someone who needs help, the other on a professional who is willing to help with all the knowledge he has.
My Life is sure that nothing replaces a medical consultation, especially medical / patient contact, but we firmly believe in the power of democratization of health information to help people make better decisions and make better choices. In a country where the health care chain is deficient, we are often the first stop before a patient arrives at a doctor's office. The goal of the Online Health Effort is not to be the only stop, just the beginning of a much greater quest for a healthier life.
To participate, the doctor must register at Ask the Expert at // specialists. The Good Consultation is a website for scheduling online medical consultations. It is a good site for medical appointments online.
