Understand how Holiadvice meets my area for expertise

Telemedicine is used in Western medicine for several years. Telemedicine systems have been developed for a wide range of expertise such as primary care, psychiatry, psychology, consulting in various medical specialties, employee health management, exercise and more. There are appropriate treatment protocols in different kinds of therapy but these do not yet exist in holistic medicine. Holiadvice will lead to the development of these protocols to allow practitioners to get a general framework for the provision of remote medical treatment. The protocols will include the entire chain of care and will be developed with the practitioners themselves.

Digital Clinic is a digital asset used by the practitioners in several forms

1. Consulting: Practitioner can consult in any field, like primary care , integrative medicine practitioners can also advise in their field of expertise. Many are already doing so by e-mail, Skype, and in different chat software. Holiadvice's advantage, is that it allows isolating the environment of the treatment and give the patient and the practitioner to a dedicated setting. This is the digital equivalent of a physical clinic. Practitioners can consult in many cases, even if his or hers field of expertise combines physical therapy.
