A local court in Kerala recently sentenced an obstetrician to 1 year of jail for failure to deliver a baby in time resulting in the death of the child in 2007. Whereas, the merits of the case can always be debated, it is very clear that society and courts are becoming increasingly hostile to perceived medical errors. Whereas, many such situations may arise due to errors of judgement, it is necessary that the medical professional documents the exercise of due diligence while taking the decision. One such act of due diligence could be a timely second opinion.

PyraMed enables doctors to get a second opinion by discussing the case with peers/ specialists on a joint video-consultation platform from the comfort of their clinics, using a smartphone.
