TELEDOC uses leading-edge communications technology to bring high-quality healthcare and health related information directly to rural villages. Local healthcare personal can enter disease symptoms and patient information into the database over the widely-available GPRS network. Doctors retrieve that information at an IT-enabled central clinic, where they input diagnoses, prescriptions and treatment for retrieval by the local personal. TELEDOC is a low-cost, highly effective and broadly applicable networking solution.
