The department of telemedicine, SSSIHMS, Whitefield is part of the Sri Sathya Sai Tele-health Network that includes both the sister institutions at Prasanthigram and Whitefield.
Need for Sri Sathya Sai Telehealth Network:
India is a vast country with its population widely distributed over a diverse landscape. Modern health care is yet to make inroads to the majority of the populace residing in rural India. One thrust area in vogue is the field of Telemedicine. Due to the non-commercial nature of the treatment provided at SSSIHMS, the hospital receives patients from all over India and even from many SAARC countries like Nepal and Bangladesh. A large number of these patients are below poverty line and some cannot afford to even travel the distance to avail the free and quality services of SSSIHMS. The telemedicine facility at SSSIHMS aims at reaching out to these patients in their geographical areas providing both diagnosis and counseling without them having to traverse the distance and incur avoidable expense.
The mission of the Sri Sathya Sai Telehealth Network is to leverage the potential of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools and extend the reach of quality medical care provided free of cost by Sri Sathya Sai Health System for patients requiring neurosurgical care.
Aims of the project:
Sri Sathya Sai Telehealth Network seeks to extend its neurosurgical expertise to remote areas through the nodes established at select locations across several States. SSSIHMS looks forward to utilize it telemedicine network to:
Through successful integration of telemedicine services in it’s routine clinical care, SSSIHMS expects to achieve “right service mix” that is both timely and distance insensitive ensuring maximum efficiency and effectiveness in optimal utilization of its resources.
Integration with other projects
The scope of Sri Sathya Sai Telehealth Network can also be scaled to meet the referrals for neurosurgical support from sister institutions like SSSGH-Whitefield, SSSIHMS-Prasanthi Gram, Sri Sathya Sai Mobile Hospital and any other associated institutions. The possibility of integrating the telemedicine application provided by ISRO with the eHIS and PACS functional at SSSIHMS-Whitefield will enhance the scope of the project and will have an impact on the delivery of telehealth services positively. Challenges Ahead include…
