Talking to an acquaintance in medical profession on telephone would be the most easy and perhaps the most frequently used mode of seeking medical advice. With the exponential increase in mobile phone users in urban and rural India, we have the opportunity to use this extensive network to take medical help to the doorstep of patients. To this effect Telemedicine Centre, All India Institute of Medical sciences Bhopal has launched its upgraded Tele health Call Centre "Doorasth chikitsa Kendra" which is a voice based Tele consultation facility with Toll free calling at 1800-233-1104.
● First consultation is by trained “Tele triage” Healthcare Professionals who will segregate phone call based on their level of risk as identified by the Tele-triage guidelines.
● Along with Telephonic consultation callers will receive e-prescription through SMS. A Weblink will be provided in the SMS through which callers can download a formal prescription as per medical prescription guidelines.
● “Callers detail”, “Doctor’s observations” and “Advice given” will be recorded in a database and will be available to the doctor during next tele consultation when the same patient calls again.
● To make Tele consultation effective and safe for the patients Telemedicine centre AIIMS Bhopal has collaborated with Tele Triage SystemsTM California USA for development of standards of practise guidelines and training in telephone triage.
