Direct to Consumer Marketing – An Indication of the Future
On these sites, people self-diagnose and select the drug they want, then enter some personal health and credit information. A doctor then assesses their choice, with no in-person consultation. If approved, the medicine arrives in the mail days or weeks later. The sites invert the usual practice of medicine by turning the act of prescribing drugs into a service. Instead of doctors making diagnoses and then suggesting treatments, patients request drugs and physicians serve largely as gatekeepers card information.
