They can also monitor patients

Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre (MMHRC), here has deployed 16 mobile Health Robots by Teladoc Health for purpose of clinical examinations, diagnosis, and monitoring of health parameters patients.

MMHRC was the first healthcare institution in India to deploy the health robots, said its chairman Dr.S. Gurushankar.He said that the robots had empowered our doctors to treat patients anywhere and anytime. An expert opinion from a specialist anywhere in the world could be easily obtained and doctors from different disciplines can come together to treat a patient.

They can also monitor patients. This capability has helped us save many lives during the COVID-19 pandemic, he said,
The robots could carry out basic clinical examinations on their own, as instructed by the doctors. Applying Artificial Intelligence, the robots could collect and process data from other diagnostic equipment and present it to the doctors to help them make precise clinical decisions.

The adoption of such health robots would not take away the jobs of paramedical staff. Their primary objective is to augment the diagnostic abilities of doctors and improve access, quality, and efficiency of healthcare for the patients, he said.
