With a Virtual Assistant or a Chatbot in Healthcare, the problem of Patients waiting in queue for meeting with the Doctor for small diagnosis could actually be solved when the chatbot is with the patients only assisting them for the prescription and dosage. Just like your Google voice search asking it to search about anything you desired and it shows the results, the chatbot, in this case, assisting the patient can understand your symptoms when you tell it to it and answers to your questions providing the desired prescriptions you need.
