Free Medical Advice for your Medical Questions. Great start, what’s next?

I have been following the “Free Advice”, “Free help”, “Free this”, “Free that” news pretty actively on the Internet. When everyone in the world was crazy for domain names, a company came out of nowhere offering free “.com” domain names (it ultimately went bust, but that’s beside the point 😉 ). When information was expensive and you had to subscribe to encyclopedias like Encarta or Britannica, Wikipedia came and made it all free. Then it was the paid news era – Online news subscription! Who would’ve thought, those same Newspapers will be competing with each other to provide more and more for free online! Thank you Google.

Talking of services that are still “paid for” on the Internet – there’s web hosting, all physical products that need to be delivered to you, leisure stuff like hotel stays, airlines, holidays etc and that’s probably about it (leaving the teeny weeny video, audio downloads, tickets, services etc.)

There’s one industry that has evolved at a fairly slow pace online – Medicine, Medical advice and stuff related to doctors and hospitals. Some time ago, Google came up with Google health, which at one point, was believed, had a bright future and was destined to take medical services to levels similar to other fields, but that wasn’t to happen.

While searching for a solution to my friend’s insomnia related problem, I came through to this new web site – Free Medical Helpline – Started by a few Doctors from India. They emphasize on giving medical guidance, and not prescriptions.

A new Free in Medical field
A new “Free” in Medical Advice

I have posted a question on this site about my friend’s medical issues. On going through some questions posted by others, I can see how the team was enthusiastic at first and has gradually come down to miniature answers. Probably the site can evolve into a wider encyclopedic source as and when questions come in. I will keep at eye out for my answer and update this post once I get an answer to my question.

Time will tell if this “Free Medical Advice Service” will pass the test of time and join Newspapers and Social Media!
