Health Ministry's tele-medicine platform provides over 1.5 lakh online consultations

@drharshvardhan
Health ministry’s initiative eSanjeevani OPD, a telemedicine service, has registered one lakh 58 thousand online consultations. Health and family welfare minister Harsh Vardhan said, since last November, 23 states have launched the services covering 75 per cent of the country’s population, while others are in the process of rolling it out. The eSanjeevani platform has enabled two types of tele-consultations-doctor-to-doctor (eSanjeevani) and patient-to-doctor (eSanjeevani OPD).
 
Dr Harsh Vardhan said, eSanjeevani is being implemented under the Ayushman Bharat Health and Wellness Centre (AB-HWCs) programme. It seeks to connect all 150,000 Health and wellness centres using the hub-and-spoke model by December 2022, he said. So far, 12,000 health professionals, including 2,800 doctors, have been trained to offer consultations on the national e-platform through over 3,000 HWCs across 10 states.
 
Every day, around 250 doctors and specialists are providing eHealth services despite the lockdowns, he said. This service is available on Android apps. A patient gets to see the doctor in around five minutes after logging in.
