Doc's prescription for tele-medicine in India


Doc's prescription for tele-medicine

-- High investment required for telemedicine is one of the reason for its slow progress in India. Fortunately Internet has the potential to change all that and more, as it reduces communication costs. 

--Majority of the telemedicine applications in India pertain to teleradiology, telepathology and telecardiology.

--However it is the concept of "social inclusion" which is more important than technology for the tele-medicine.
