Forty-one government medical institutions will be interlinked to create a national task force on telemedicine to address the problem of scarcity of doctors in rural India.

Navneet Kumar Dhamija, deputy commissioner, e-health, Health Ministry said: “Telemedicine centres will be established in medical colleges, which will also facilitate online consultation.’’
AIIMS additional professor, surgery, Dr. Subodh Kumar, who is part of the project said that several lakh villages will be benefit from the venture.
