Telemedicine Education Center
There are dramatic changes in the delivery of healthcare across the world, driven by economic, political
and consumer will. In India, there is a major issue of access of patients to quality health care.
The current healthcare model cannot meet these demands. This is leading to the concept of providing a greater level of service nearer the patient, in the community.
Telehealth is rapidly being integrated into the mainstream of healthcare delivery in a number of countries across the world.
There are relatively few courses that include formal training in telehealth.
A Certificate ptogramme in Telehealth will be organized by the Apollo Telemedicine Networking Foundation
(ATNF), the oldest and largest multi-specialty telemedicine network in South Asia.
This course will be designed to address the demands of people with skills to deliver and manage these new healthcare delivery systems.
The objective is to provide the health and industry sectors with people skilled to understand design, selection, procurement, installation, management, maintenance, and evaluation of telehealth systems appropriate to present and future needs.
