Abstract

As a result of our R&D efforts, we have developed an integrated telemedicine application “e-Diabetes” in accordance with the vision of Govt. of India to provide multi-specialty healthcare to all at an affordable cost. Its primary aim is to develop a world-class telemedicine technology solution for providing health care to all at affordable cost. This paper describes the potential benefits made available by this technology in diabetes care, and how this new E-Diabetes solution complements the daily care of diabetic patients. This Telemedicine Diabetes Application will deliver diabetic care to the patients of under-served rural areas of India at very low cost.
