Intelehealth provides a telemedicine platform through Frontline Health Workers (FHWs). The female FHW is guided by a digital assistant to provide evidence-based health services. For conditions which are beyond the capacity of the FHW and digital assistant, she connects with a virtual doctor over telemedicine. The platform not only increased the FHW’s knowledge, it has also placed her as a trusted and respected member of the community.
“I thank the local authorities for introducing telemedicine in our village at a very low cost, this is a very useful initiative for poor people like us. It has been a month now that I was treated at the clinic and there is a lot of improvement in my back pain.”
