Dr. Sunita Maheshwari, President of Telemedicine Society of India – Karnataka Chapter and founder of Teleradiology Solutions said, “When it comes to any health issue, time is of utmost importance. Timely medical intervention, diagnosis or treatment is the only thing that can cure illnesses and save lives. Telemedicine bridges this gap.” She added, “TSI, Karnataka aims to educate people across the state on the advantages of telemedicine and how it will bring the much needed change in the healthcare sector in the coming years.”
Dr.Maheswari further added, “ Telemedicine has been attempted in bits and pieces over the past decade in India. This patchwork and pilot approach did not really get the desired benefits for rural India where access to doctor is still a challenge. A large government initiative like SEHAT can hopefully impact many lives. It would be ideal if government can rope in as many service providers as possible so the impact created is larger. At the end of the day how good the implementation will determine its real impact.”
“IMPACT & TRENDS IN TELEMEDICINE 2015” conclave aims to create awareness about the impact of Telemedicine in healthcare delivery and establish the fact that telemedicine is not just for regions with limited medical access but is also an important tool to expedite process in developed cities. Medical practitioners will showcase the latest technologies that has the potential and the power to deliver quicker, more efficient and cheaper healthcare to all, at the Impact & Trends in Telemedicine 2015 conference.
Dr Sanjay Sharma, Secretary of Telemedicine Society of India – Karnataka Chapter says, “Karnataka in recent time has witnessed a lot of development in the field of telemedicine compared to any other states in India. The inaugural conclave of Telemedicine Society of India-Karnataka Chapter is a great platform for the telemedicine practitioners to showcase their latest work. Through this initiative, we urge the practitioners in this sector to come share their experience and knowledge.”
