NIMHANS, Bangalore and Mysore based KR Hospital has established connectivity for their telemedcine project in collaboration with Larsen & Toubro Ltd in Bangalore. L&T has gifted telemedicine solutions and equipment worth INR 6 lakh to both the medical centres, as part of a private-public participation programme. Initially, neurology and neuro-radiology departments of the KR Hospital will be linked with NIMHANS and later on neuro-psychiatry, cardiology and surgery departments will also be linked. MA Shekar, Telemedicine Co-ordinator of Mysore Medical College & Research Institute stated that if ISRO will go for satellite transmission, the connectivity will be good and smoother. The telemedicine project will also upgrade teaching programmes and interaction between doctors, besides treating patients. NIMHANS was also co-operating with L&T and other Indian companies in respect of their new gadgets, sharing its experience.
