"When the lockdown started due to Covid-19 many national and international patients were very concerned about their disease and their treatment. In these challenging times, Online Video Consultations turned out to be an excellent tool to overcome obstacles like travel restrictions making it again possible for international patients to see their preferred physician face to face."
"Patients are now becoming free of pain faster, often it takes only two or three consultations for the patient to see and feel positive progress with their new therapy."
"It happens to many patients that a diagnosis is not performed properly. Having a second opinion often shows essential new insights to the patient and physician making new treatments and therapies much more effective. In a few cases, a second opinion can be even life-saving." - Doz. Dr. Johannes Grisar

Ideal process of an online consultation:

  1. Patient sends relevant files and history in advance
  2. The physician reviews all documents and prepares for the online consultation
    - this saves a lot of time and makes the process even more effective
  3. In the video online consultation, the physician will ask specific questions to the patient in order to find out the best treatment
    - If an in-person consultation is mandatory, the physician of Wiener Privatklinik will send clear advice for a physician close to the patients' residence. Optional the patient will also receive support from WPK’s Case Managers to plan a trip to WPK hospital in Vienna/Austria.
  4. A personal therapy plan will be discussed and assigned to the patient
    - if necessary the interdisciplinary board of physicians at WPK will support the planning and process for the best possible treatment of the patient
  5. New check-ups might be advised
  6. Follow-up video consultations (discounted - 50 %) scheduled if necessary
