3 Ways the Internet is Helping People

 Technology has become extremely advanced in the past two decades. We have online access nearly everywhere in the world. People can see each other despite being thousands of miles away. The internet has evolved from AOL mail to Zoom calls in less than two decades. People can now order food online and receive it within minutes. They can now meet and date people they meet online via mobile apps that are completely open to the public. People can now receive therapy online via chat and video calls with the tap of a button.

Here are three ways the internet is helping people.

1. We can purchase medication online.


Nowadays when we get sick, we can just get on an app or website and purchase our medications. We can have them delivered to our door as well. Companies like RexMD and Hims provide an online platform to purchase medication for men's health. These two online pharmacies concentrate on medication for men's erectile dysfunction (ED) such as Cialis. Some of the benefits of cialis include improved erectile function as it's main purpose, but this can also achieve an improved quality of life for many users. This can improve self-esteem and emotional issues that arise due to ED, but should always be taken according to dosage recommendations and healthcare provider advice. These pharmacies mentioned are actually two of the safest shops to buy Cialis online. They also sell other FDA-approved ED pills that are not available over the counter and require prescriptions in normal pharmacies of the United States like Viagra and Tadalafil. These websites are perfect for people who appreciate privacy in their sexual life and health. Their licensed providers won't judge and provide insightful feedback to help you decide which FDA-approved ED pill is better for you. 

2. We can do telemedicine via video chat.


Telemedicine has been around for a while, but not as it is now. Today, we can press a button and have medical advice regarding any health issues. Telemedicine is available for everyone to use. Many of these companies accept the most common health insurances, so patients can have peace of mind that their services are being covered. Some health insurance companies even have their own telemedicine lines so people can call in at any time. They will first speak with a nurse who will take their personal information like their name and address. They'll also review any past consultations, medical history, and medical conditions. Later, the nurse will transfer the patient to one of the doctors on shift so they can properly assess the patient and provide any medication prescription they deem necessary. During the session, the patient can consult with the doctor on any medical issues they're facing such as erectile dysfunction, high blood pressure, heart problems, and headaches.

3. Doctors can email prescriptions to the pharmacies.


When patients go through telemedicine or any other medical service at the doctor's office, the doctor will provide them with a prescription. This prescription as we know it is on paper, and the patient will deliver it to the pharmacy themselves. However, with the internet, the patient is saved the trouble of driving to the pharmacy, making a queue to dispatch their prescription, and then walking or driving around to come back and receive their medicines. Today, the internet has revolutionized this process for everyone's benefit. 

The doctor can now directly send the medical prescription via email or an online portal where the pharmacy receives it within minutes. This saves the doctor money because they don't have to purchase prescription pads (or at least fewer of them). It also saves the patient time because they're freed from making that first trip to the pharmacy and can simply go to pick up their medicines when they're ready. Lastly, this saves the pharmacy time as well because they don't have to tend to patients bringing in their prescriptions.

The internet has helped the world in many more ways we can imagine—these examples are merely snapshots of what it can do to help us.
