E – Sanjeevani Telemedicine Platform Project

It may be noted that the Government of India started the ‘e-Sanjeevani OPD Service’ program some time ago with the objective of providing health services in rural areas.

In the series, due to the Covid pandemic, the government has recently allowed former doctors of the Indian Army to offer their OPD services on the ‘e-Sanjeevani’ telemedicine platform under the e-Sanjeevani OPD Service Program.

Key points

  • It should be noted that retired (former) doctors of the Medical Corps of the Indian Army have been called back on duty by the Army.
  • Their task is to provide online medical advice to the common citizens through telemedicine service. The ‘e-Sanjeevani’ telemedicine platform of the Government of India is to be used for this advice.
  • The Indian Army has taken this step to meet the challenges posed by the Covid-19

What is e-Sanjeevani?

  • e-Sanjeevani is a program to provide access to specialized health services in rural areas and backward communities of the country. It is a web-based comprehensive telemedicine service.
  • The objective of e-Sanjeevani is to increase the quality of medical services and to overcome the uneven distribution of health services and lack of infrastructure in the country.
  • It will also justify health services by reducing the digital divide in the country, addressing issues related to human resources through online service.
  • Through the e-Sanjeevani platform, two types of telemedicine services such as doctor-to-doctor and patient-to-doctor Tele-counseling have been enabled.

E-Sanjeevani OPD
