Key program components
In collaboration with the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, ReMeDi creates indigenously developed telemedicine solutions useful to clinics, hospitals and rural health centers. These affordable telemedicine solutions are intended to bridge the gap between state of the art health care available in urban areas and developed countries, and underdeveloped healthcare services in rural areas and developing countries.
One example is the Remote Diagnostic Kit developed by Neurosynaptic. The kit can be installed at villages and other remote locations with internet connectivity. Doctors located in urban or distant locations can video link to rural patients and use the Remote Diagnostic Kit to measure basic physiological parameters. The kit can send information on the patients temperature, blood pressure, pulse rate and multi-channel ECG. The kit also contains an Electronic Stethoscope to capture sounds from the chest and back of the patient. Complete software is provided for the doctor to remotely control the kit and for biomedical measurements to be sent to the doctor. There is a central database to store all patient records and history.
