Get a Sick Note via Skype

Trevor one comments

There are now 2 websites in Australia that offer sick notes through Skype. Instead of having to go to the doctor’s office to get an assessment and get a legitimate sick leave, you can now easily do it through a Skype call and avoid the commute and waiting.

From the employee side this is great news because the waiting factor is eliminated; particularly if you have to wait more than half a day at the doctors office just to get excused for the day. When this happens, by the time you get back home you are exhausted and reevaluated the value of having waited for 6 hours just to get 2 hours of rest versus just going to work.

From the employer side, the fraud factor is a legitimate concern as well as the ease of obtaining a sick note. Although receiving an accredited medical certificate first thing in the morning, as opposed to the next day, does have it’s merits since you will be able to shift resources quickly without having to doubt the absent employee. Furthermore, if the worker is legitimately sick, it is best to keep him away from your otherwise healthy workers; the last thing you need is a flu outbreak throughout the office.

The two websites that have launched in Australia are Dr. Sicknote and The Medic. These two practices are embracing the use of technology into their customer satisfaction and turnaround time.

It will be interesting to see how soon this will be replicated in other countries, and what measures the healthcare industry and companies will have in place to reduce fraud.
