This is the year 2055 and humans have expanded their quest for survival to Mars. The humans are now divided into two groups, one’s who stayed back on Earth to restore the damage done to its nature and the other, who departed for Mars in order to cultivate a new nature there.
While the Martians have been successful in their struggle against nurturing a rather tough planet, they are largely dependent on Earthlings for their medical needs. Since the beginning of this transition from Earth to Mars, humans were so focused on creating a new planet that they neglected the basic necessity of having enough medical practitioners and facilities on the newly inhabited planet.
The Martians face a new variant of Sars-Cov-19 and with limited medical expertise on the planet, only Earthlings can save them. The leaders of Mars are desperate for help and with Variant 572 of the Sars-Cov-19 spreading rampantly across Mars, interplanetary travel is banned.
Earthlings are determined in their effort to help their fellow humans on Mars and they have turned to technology for their mission, a mission, to save the Martians from this deadly variant.
Back in the year, 2019, when the first variant of the Sars-Cov-19 was discovered, the earthlings had looked upon the Telemedicine a.k.a TeleConsultation for their medical practises and since then the technology has developed rather swiftly.
Over the last 30 years or so, Earthlings have grown telemedicine to all-new levels. In the year 2021, a then social media giant, META, had launched METAVERSE which laid foundations for the virtual OPD Rooms.
Development of VIRTUAL TESTS by scanning the density and flow of body fluids
have further helped the Martians. Further, back in 2040, when a satellite-based organ scanner was launched by the Health Department of United Nations of Earth & Mars (UNEA), was launched, it was looked at as a security threat and breach of privacy of the citizens of Earth back then. But, now when a Martian needs a whole-body scan for their inner organs, all they need is to long-press their in-body health chip, placed it in their elbows and walk to their terrace. A satellite then comes within 30 seconds to their exact location and completes a detailed radiology scan along with all necessary vitals and body functions.
These reports are then pushed into, EARMAR Health Systems, the world’s most advanced Physical Environment, Diagnostic & Symptom Mapping AI, which is governed by the joint authority of the UNEA. EARMAR has over the years gathered health patterns of each of the humans residing on each planet and now this AI has developed the capacity to give custom medication and treatment plans to each patient.
Now, Doctors on Earth with their specially made Virtual Reality OPD Rooms, VROs, which demonstrate patient’s vitals, all diagnostic records on a single virtual screen are able to treat patients from Mars. When these meetings are clubbed with 6th Sense & Nano Technology-driven cameras, which is the most common type of camera now, doctors can physically examine the patient’s virtual avatars which replicate all bodily functions. The patient’s connect to these VROs using their smart all-in-one devices and can also get the experience of physical yet personalised consultations which happened back in the early 2000s.
With a combination of EARMAR, VROs & In-Body health Chips, doctors can prescribe customised drugs and quantities in the MetaVerse to the patients not only from Mars but also from Earth. These drugs are then 3-D printed by the patients directly at their homes.
Technology has taken a drift in the last 50 years or so, but healthTech has seen a major uplift only over the recent years. With the advancement of healthTech, we are able to reach far more patients and treat them with much better and accurate care that the mortality rate will reach almost zero for communicable diseases not only on Earth but also on Mars. We are on the cusp of not only surviving on Mars but also cultivating human life and increasing the life span from 70 years to more than 100+ years.
Interestingly, the way healthtech is combining age-old practices from the early 2000s and upgrading them to deliver personal care is not only magnificent but also shows how far we have come as a species.
HArbor Says – Since 2019 when the Covid Era started, Telemedicine has always been the saviour for healthcare consultations but with recent developments, TeleConsultations has taken a form that was unimaginable a few years back. The fact that these systems combine the old practices with modern technology, show how robust the health systems have become. Humanity has never been better prepared to face this deadly, Variant 572 of Covid.
