The Apollo Group of Hospitals in India has launched telemedicine services for the people of Myanmar.

The telemedicine facility services were formally inaugurated at Keen Cie in Yangon during which live tele-consultation was demonstrated between doctors of KC Healthcare, Yangon and Apollo Hospitals, Delhi.

"We are committed to the achievement and maintenance of excellence in education, research and healthcare for the benefit of humanity."

Commenting on the tele-link, Apollo Hospitals Group chairman Dr. Prathap Reddy said the hospital’s mission is to make healthcare of international standards available to every individual.

"We are committed to the achievement and maintenance of excellence in education, research and healthcare for the benefit of humanity," Reddy added.

The facility allows the people of Myanmar to consult doctors and obtain access to health treatment and medical technology without physically going to Apollo Hospitals.

The Apollo Tele-Medicine Network will provide access to specialists and super-specialists for referrals, consultations, second opinions, reviews, and post treatment follow-ups. It will also facilitate tele-continuing medical education programmes for the medical fraternity in Yangoon.

The network is mainly designed to offer tele-education, tele-medicine, internet, video-conferencing and VoIP services via satellite and fibre optic network.

Keen Cie director Dr. Kyaw Min said, "This project will enable us to move to the next level of treatment and will open a new avenue for our people to explore [the] latest medical facilities available at Apollo Hospital in real time."
