SETTING UP TELE HEALTH FACILITIES AT PERIPHERAL SMALL-SCALE HEALTHCARE SET UPS
Conventional medicine with direct patient-medic suffers stagnation and may become redundant without any innovative oxygen of ideas. Current healthcare practices will ultimately need newer gateways for evolution, more cost-effective medical businesses and evidence-based healthcare at doorsteps. Though promising, the practice may face additional kick starts for changing patient-physician approach, infrastructural development, ethical and regulatory guidelines to help pave the way forward. In the opinion of author the successful deployment of “Tele-Health” will economize finances, patient referrals, physician/paramedical move to casualty site, improve clinical decisions, quality healthcare provision at country‟s periphery, and can dawn upon new learning avenues by distant learning programs.
