Birth of the Idea

Andhra Pradesh has one of the highest incidences of deaths due to heart and brain stroke. Doctor to population ratio in the state is one of the lowest in the country. Limited access for people in smaller towns and villages to consult super specialists within the “Golden Hours” has resulted in the increased incidence of cardiac deaths, stroke incidents and many life threatening medical conditions. In developed countries, sudden cardiac deaths have declined by 15% since 1980, largely because of early identification of heart attack, golden hour programs, BLS training for masses and application of Telemedicine in acute emergency care. This sparked the motivation in us to bring Telemedicine services to Andhra Pradesh.

Primary Telemedicine Centres

With a view to saving peoples’ lives during the “Golden Hours”, we have started Telemedicine Centres. We partner with local doctors, nursing homes and PHCs to provide these services in remote towns (“Spokes”). Each spoke is connected to our “Hubs” to receive expert consultation about the medical condition.

Using wireless ECG machines, 3G communication and video conferencing technology, patients in smaller towns can be treated by specialists in the Hubs. It is utilized for preventive as well as emergency care in Cardiology, Neurology and other specialties. We are pioneers in adopting technology and providing Telemedicine services for emergency care in Andhra Pradesh.
