Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, there is an increased global emphasis placed on the pursuit of new cures and vaccines.
The Blended Healthcare system aims to develop cures whilst introducing cultural sensitivity in medicine by encouraging collaboration between different practices. This involves creating a standardised healthcare system that unites traditional and conventional medicine, giving patients the option of various treatment methods depending on their symptoms. The system introduces a new healthcare role – the Treatment Mediator and Consultant (TMC). They operate within surgeries and pharmacies, informing patients of the different treatment options available to them. They also provide information to laboratories focused on creating new cures. Patients can access their own health records and biometric data using dedicated machines that provide updates on advice from the TMCs or doctors.
