Mobile Telemedicine

C-DAC Thiruvananthapuram has developed and implemented Mobile Telemedicine systems which are operational for many years. These systems are vehicle based and are equipped with all necessary diagnostic equipments. These can travel to remote areas on pre-defined schedule with medical personnel onboard for conducting medical camps. The web based, W3C compliant telemedicine software facilitates tele-consultation of patients with specialist doctors in major hospitals. The Electronic Medical Record of the patient can be transferred from vehicle to Hospital on real time, including medical images and investigation reports. Video conferencing system is embedded in the telemedicine software, which makes use of any mode of communication technology available, including 4G. .
