From November, a senior official said Friday, Common Service Centers (CSCs) in rural communities will start rolling out telemedicine facilities through which people can access alternative medicine systems such as homeopathy and Ayurveda. The product will be made accessible after an arrangement between CSC e-Governance Services India (CSC SPV) and Ayush Ministry has been concluded. The Ministry will provide video conferencing to the physicians who can provide people with mobile consultation. CSV has a low-bandwidth video conference service that doesn’t even need a broadband connection. At first, the focus will be to propagate Tamil Nadu’s Siddha type of medicine. The CSC SPV CEO Dinesh Tyagi has been chosen for this reason one hundred CSCs. He said it would take around a week to combine the telemedicine system with the CSC network. The product will initially be available free of charge and a modest price for village-level entrepreneurs (VLEs) will be established by CSC SPV. Certain types of alternative medicine will also be made available under the system after Siddha as homeopathy and Ayurveda, said Tyagi. Telemedicine will be accessible 24 hours a day. Starting December on, it will be carried out in other countries, he said. The CSCs, which serve as access points for the distribution of digital services, will be equipped with some pharmacy kits to meet the requirement for prescription and others can be bought either by the client or the VLE
