Doctors are constantly consulting each other using informal platforms using their phones. This exposes patient information to insecure platforms as it is hard to keep their discussions discreet while sharing patient files, practice notes and images. The influx of specialist in urban areas also creates a shortage of skills in rural areas, this forces patients to travel in search of the specialists, increasing the cost of healthcare on their end.
