Telemedicine is a set of communication tools, an app-based online treatment that delivers healthcare services remotely. Telemedicine is redefining the doctor-patient relationship to a new level across India today. People are resorting to online consultation with doctors for treatment and prescriptions of medicines. There is no distance barrier, and easy access to healthcare in the virtual mode is capturing stakeholders’ attention like never before. Immediate medical attention can be meted out to patients via a telemedicine app. As per Mckinsey’s report, India can save up to $10 billion by 2025 if telemedicine services could replace 30 to 40 % of in-person consultations.
