Digisahayam - an assisted telemedicine program developed by the BRIDGE Centre for Digital Health aims to improve quality and access to healthcare through trained personnel who help urban underprivileged populations access tele-medicine platforms.
An interoperable and innovative platform that embeds electronic health records, an in-built clinical decision support system, and numerous state-of-the-art digital health technologies provide a physician with comprehensive information regarding the patients’ medical history and present illnesses.
A simple yet comprehensive symptom-based template is used to collect history, perform physical examinations, and carry out laboratory investigations before initiating a tele-consultation, thereby saving time and improving quality of care.
This is particularly relevant given the current COVID-19 pandemic and the difficulties in accessing and obtaining routine primary care services in such unprecedented situations.
Improving access to primary as well as tertiary care for the poor, vulnerable, and marginalized societies living in remote, rural as well as urban locations through assisted telemedicine solutions using trained health workers.
Improving the quality of telemedicine care by equipping physicians with all the necessary patient information required to make evidence-based clinical decisions.
