Teladoc Health Robots- India’s First Telemedicine Robots
Founded in 2002, Teladoc Health is the largest virtual care company in the United States serving over 170 countries with a portfolio of services including AI and analytics, Telehealth, Medical consultations, Telehealth devices, and virtual care programs. It is the first and largest provider of Telehealth medical consults in the United States, giving 24*7 access to quality medical care.
The world’s most advanced robotic telemedicine platforms, called the Teladoc Health robots are transforming healthcare in many of the world’s finest hospitals. These robots make it possible for doctors in different locations to collaborate, design and deliver multidisciplinary AI-powered treatment regimens. These robots have been installed in 6 of the 10 world’s best hospitals.
First of its kind in India, Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre have deployed 16 mobile Teladoc Health Robots. The primary objective of the Teladoc Robot is to augment the diagnostic abilities of doctors and improve access, quality, and efficiency of healthcare delivery for patients irrespective of their physical location.
The Teladoc telemedicine robots have the capabilities to carry out basic clinical examinations (such as checking blood pressure and heart rate) on their own, as instructed by the doctors. As IoT devices, they can be used to control other advanced diagnostic equipment such as CT and MRI scan machines. These robots can collect and process data from other diagnostic equipment and present it to doctors to help them make precise clinical decisions. With the help of Teladoc, doctors from different disciplines, from all parts of the world, can come together to treat and monitor patients all the time.
At Meenakshi Mission, these robots have empowered our doctors to treat patients anywhere and anytime. Our ambulances will also be equipped with Teladoc robots. By doing this, the patient can immediately get in touch with the Emergency and ICU specialists along with the other specialists of all departments. This means that specialists like neurologists and cardiologists can begin vital treatment even as critically ill patients are on their way to the hospital.
We are all set to explore ways to use this novel technology to provide expert diagnosis from Madurai to patients in other parts of the country and put world-class healthcare within everyone’s reach.
Summing up, Meenakshi Mission feels proud to bring this cutting-edge technology to the people of Tamilnadu. Yet again we have proved that we are Always First and Always Best.
