Rural clinics are the second part of our physical infrastructure which actually acts as the interface between patients and technology. As rural patients are mainly illiterate and new to smart phone's advanced applications, they need assistance in using the platform.
Our medic thus creates the profiles of new patients (previously not created in health camps) and inspect the patients at his level. If the problem is simple, he prescribes treatment then and there as recalls the patient for following after a fixed time.
But if the problem is complex and needs specialist intervention, the medic connects the patient to the respective specialist sitting far away in the city and assist the specialist in the primary inspection of the patients and thus giving the much needed human touch.
Thus clinics serve the following purpose:
Interface between people and technology
facilitate people to access telemedicine
facilitate telemedicine to function properly and in inspecting patients through human intervention
