New Delhi, Aug 25 (RDI IBNS): Ravi Shankar Prasad, Minister of Communications and Information Technology and Minister of Law and Justice launched the government's latest health and IT initiative called SEHAT ( Social Endeavour for Health And Telemedicine ) at the India Habitat Centre in Delhi on Tuesday.

This venture with the Apollo Hospitals was the first of its kind in India to connect 60,000 Common Service Centers across the country to a common network and provide healthcare access to millions of citizens irrespective of geographical location or connectivity, an official statement said. Prathap C Reddy, Chairman Apollo Hospitals said: This initiative of SEHAT, shall connect the largest population of our country on a common network to avail telehealth services. Apollo Hospitals has always been committed to providing the DIGITAL DIVIDEND to all Indians. We are very proud to have launched Indias first telemedicine centre in 2000 which was launched in Aragonda and it was inaugurated by the then President of the United States, Mr Bill Clinton. Through our PMs DIGITAL INDIA initiative more Indians shall get access to e-services and we are delighted to be a partner with the GOI in this path breaking endeavour to link SEHAT to 60,000 CSCs, he said. Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals said: Telemedicine can provide rural population access for basic, specialty and super specialty consultations. Since 80% of conditions do not require a doctors physical presence immediately, they can be dealt with through telemedicine. Most lifestyle and communicable diseases fall into this category. It is indeed a privilege for us to work with the Government of India and the Honble Minister in making history by starting the worlds largest telemedicine program in the world today. The Apollo Group launched the first telemedicine centre in the country in 2000. Through this, the hospital has been able to reach geographically remote and inaccessible regions of the country and the world to better enable the reach of medical treatment.
