Its aim is to reach the under-serviced rural populations through virtual physical examination modules such as tele-ENT, tele-dermatology, tele-medical and surgical consult, tele-cardiology, tele-ophthalmology, rapid diagnosis of diabetes, etc.
The objective of 'Dox in box' service is to design a point of care, user friendly, cost effective, integrated multi functional device for rural telemedicine applications with emphasis on general physician functionality. The disease pattern at the primary health centre and sub centre level in rural India typically includes conditions like acute minor ailments, chronic diseases (diabetes, hypertension, renal disease, and COPD), pregnancy and related illness and pediatric illnesses. Since there is a lacuna of trained physicians, there is a dire need for an 'all in one' comprehensive low cost point of care tele-med device which fills this gap.
