It also offers teleconsultations in OB/GYN, cardiology, orthopedics, and nephrology, among others.

Apollo Telehealth, in collaboration with the Government of Manipur has launched a telemedicine-driven primary health center (PHC) in Borobeka, Manipur.

This initiative aims to improve healthcare access for communities affected by recent conflicts in the state.

Reportedly, Borobeka, known for its isolation and difficult roads, faces significant barriers to timely medical care and emergency services.

Moreover, the nearest referral hospital is in Jiribam, a 90-minute journey away. This distance leads to delayed treatment and worsened health issues for residents.

Justice Gita Mittal, chairperson of the Supreme Court-appointed Committee on Relief and Rehabilitation in Manipur said, “By harnessing their expertise and resources, our aim is to swiftly restore operations at Borobeka PHC, ensuring residents have access to quality medical care.”

What Does it Offer?

Per reports, Apollo Telehealth installed essential medical and IT infrastructure, along with a team of trained staff and internet connectivity.

The PHC underwent a 30-day renovation to meet local needs. Now, it features an MBBS doctor, nurses, lab technicians, and MPHWS professionals. It also offers teleconsultations in OB/GYN, cardiology, orthopedics, and nephrology, among others.

Furthermore, the PHC is fully equipped to execute national health mission programs for NCD, ANC/PNC, mental health, and others.

Moreover, patients can avail of consultations with over 15 specialist doctors from across India through telemedicine services accessible directly from Borobeka.

The attending doctors conduct thorough examinations, diagnose primary health conditions, and prescribe quality medicines as necessary. Additionally, the PHC has laboratories offering over 35 different tests to cater to diverse medical needs.

Last year, Apollo Telehealth inaugurated its TeleEmergency and TeleICU services at nine National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) plants across India.

These NTPC plants, strategically located in Ramagundam, Kaniha, Korba, Vindhyachal, Dadri, Barh, Solapur, North Karanpura, and Mauda, got access to Apollo's TeleEmergency and TeleICU services.

These services aim to bring advanced medical care closer to the NTPC workforce.

Notably, during the COVID-19 pandemic, Apollo Telehealth supported NTPC by establishing and operating remote COVID management units at 11 plant sites, where over 1700 engineers were treated, monitored, and stabilized using a combination of remote monitoring and on-ground support.

Additionally, Apollo TeleHealth played a key role in the Mukhyamantri e-Eye Kendram initiative, spearheaded by the Government of Andhra Pradesh.

Leveraging cutting-edge digital technologies and a skilled team comprising ophthalmologists, optometrists, and technicians, Apollo TeleHealth made a profound impact by delivering eye care services to 2.5 million individuals across 115 Mukyamantri e-Eye Kendram (tele-ophthalmology centers) situated across Andhra Pradesh.

As an integral part of this initiative, Apollo TeleHealth conducted over 2.4 million refraction tests and analysed over 900,000 fundus images.

These efforts aimed to identify early signs of various eye-related conditions, including but not limited to diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, cataracts, macular degeneration, and other ocular issues, providing valuable insights for patients' well-being.
