[pib] E-Sanjeevani Tele-Medicine Platform


From UPSC perspective, the following things are important :

Prelims level : E-Sanjeevani

Mains level : Telemedicine and its effectiveness

1.5 lakh teleconsultations were recently completed on the “eSanjeevani” and “eSanjeevani OPD” tele-medicine.

Why Telemedicine?

Telemedicine can increase the efficiency of care delivery, reduce expenses of caring for patients or transporting to another location, and can even keep patients out of the hospital.  

E-Sanjeevani Platform

  • E-Sanjeevani is a platform-independent, browser-based application facilitating both doctor-to-doctor and patient-to-doctor tele-consultations.
  • It provides the ease of accessing the health records at the comforts of one’s home.
  • The application is based on invite-system which restricts it to the actual beneficiaries of the application.
  • It has a user-friendly interface which facilitates both tech-savvy and novice doctors/users in the rural and urban environment to access the application.
  • This eSanjeevani platform has enabled two types of telemedicine services viz. Doctor-to-Doctor (eSanjeevani) and Patient-to-Doctor (eSanjeevani OPD) Tele-consultations.
  • The former is being implemented under the Ayushman Bharat Health and Wellness Centre (AB-HWCs) programme.

Services included:

The telemedicine platform hosts speciality OPDs which include:

  • Gynaecology, Psychiatry, Dermatology, ENT, Ophthalmology, antiretroviral therapy (ART) for the AIDS/HIV patients, Non-Communicable Disease (NCD) etc

Yes, I agree with you, telemedicine is a modern online treatment. Yes, it is convenient in a metropolis for people with an Internet with smartphones. And what about people in villages, in abandoned collective farms who do not know what an Internet and a smart phone are? .

I believe that in the field of medicine there should always be high-quality software. After all, we are talking about the health of patients and their care. And such software should work without failures.

There is a very cool application there is even an ambulance button. The developers have tried so hard that even an ignorant person can handle this telemedicine application. A very cool developed medical program can be exited with any device.
