Every year over a billion people turn to the internet to get information about their health and wellness. It is estimated that 1 in 20 of these searches are about health-related concerns but unfortunately, these searches seldom yield the correct answer.
The new Discovery DrConnect functionality provides seamless access to high quality medical information from a worldwide network of over 105 000 doctors in over 174 countries and also facilitates personalised interactions between patients and their doctors.
Through the Discovery app and website, you now have access to;
- Ask a doctor: a growing library of over 5 billion doctor - created answers to medical questions or you can get a personalised answer from a doctor, at no additional cost to you
- Health goals: Doctor-created tips and checklists to help you meet your health goals and manage your chronic conditions
- Your doctors: Virtual follow-up consultations with participating doctors who you have seen in the last 12 months, using voice, video or text, paid from applicable day-to-day benefits
