Reaching care to where it’s never been.
Meenakshi Tele Care (MTC) is the telemedicine project at MMHRC. Launched in 2009, it is aimed at improving healthcare delivery in the underserved rural areas. The telemedicine system was introduced by MMHRC and is supported by Direct Relief International (USA), the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and a few prominent NGOs.
Telemedicine provides delivery of healthcare services to places where distance is a critical factor. In this practice, all the healthcare professionals involved use information and communication technologies for exchange of valid information, diagnoses, treatments and the prevention of disease and injuries.
People living in remote areas often struggle to access timely and quality medical care, since most of the specialist doctors are located in the cities. Telemedicine makes it possible for patients to have easy access to expert doctors through a virtual interface.
