The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) of India has expanded its telemedicine connectivity at its cancer treatment facility. The telemedicine node will be a part of the overall telemedicine initiatives at AIIMS to connect and offer consultations to around 100 networked hospitals in the country and abroad. The telemedicine link will be established between the hospitals to provide easy access of best medical services to patients at their places. The hospital has plans to strengthen its intra-hospital interlinking in next few months so that experts in various departments can directly converse with the patients and doctors from their respective departments. The facility will provide emergency on call consultation for the networked institutions, regular scheduled telemedicine consultation and tele-education lectures, teaching and training programmes. The AIIMS telemedicine facility will also provide consultations to the SAARC and pan-African countries.
