Health Minister lauds contribution of States in popularising eSanjeevani

@drharshvardhan
Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan today lauded the contribution of States in popularising eSanjeevani. In a short span of time since November last year, tele-consultation by eSanjeevani and eSanjeevaniOPD have been implemented by 23 States, which covers 75 percent of the population.

This eSanjeevani platform has enabled two types of telemedicine services -  Doctor-to-Doctor (eSanjeevani) and Patient-to-Doctor (eSanjeevani OPD) Tele-consultations.

Addressing a review meeting with states and Union Territories, Dr Harsh Vardhan said, the national telemedicine service has completed more than one lakh 50 thousand tele-consultations enabling patient to doctor consultations from the confines of their home.

He said, the government has started implementing the vision of Digital India through broadband and mobile phones at the Ayushman Bharat - Health and Wellness Centres. He said, with the cooperation of States and UTs, and a pool of selfless and medical practitioners and specialists, they have been able to provide healthcare services through tele-medicine platforms such as eSanjeevani. The Minister said, this has substantially augmented the health infrastructure during the COVID pandemic.
