Centre plans to connect CHCs via telemedicine in Pune, India

The Centre will connect all the Community Health Centres (CHCs) of Pune (India) district with super-specialty hospitals through telemedicine and tele-counseling. The project would be modeled on the lines of Baramati-based Grameen Rugnalaya Centre. The pilot project is expected to be implemented in the next six-nine months in the district. All the rural CHCs will be connected to super-specialty hospitals and talks are on with Ruby Hall Clinic and Aundh Chest Hospital of Pune. The project will also help in maintaining an electronic record of the patient’s medical history and also bring in transparency in the supply chain of drugs and vaccines. The CHCs will send reports like ECG, radiotherapy, images of eye scan and others to specialists in the hospitals. The Baramati CHC has tied up with Bangalore-based Narayana Hrudyalaya and Madurai-based Aravind Eye Hospital to provide telemedicine and tele-counseling services.
