Dial D for Doctor
For villagers in far-flung hamlets, quality healthcare remains an undreamt-of dream. KGVK’s telemedicine initiative, as a part of its ambitious health project, aims to make the dream a living reality. Our remotely located franchisee units (Shalini Swasth Kendras) will have simple interactive kiosks connecting them to the medical resources in the secondary care hospitals like the Shalini Hospital Network and a statewide network of super specialists. At the second stage, the Shalini Hospitals network and the Shalini Swasth Kendra franchisees would be connected through dial-up and Wi-Fi network (wherever available).
With Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) as our infrastructure provider, the sky is the limit! Technology consists of the satellite, a hub or the uplink facility and the remote terminals at the Shalini Hospitals for two-way communication. Franchisees will have low-cost laptops powered by solar panels, which would be integrated with tele-pathology devices like Glucometer and digital ECG machines. Apollo Telemedicine Network Foundation has offered technical help to design the software solutions for the second stage.
