Healthcare is the right of every Individual but lack of quality infrastructure, dearth of medical facilities thwarts its reach to the rural population. The key challenges in this case are lack of awareness and limited access to facilities. Thus, there is a need for affordable health services for the low income rural population. This can be done by the use of the available robust IT technologies and services available under Common Service Centers.

In the recent years there has been significant growth in Information Technology. The internet has also transformed clinical care. IT interventions and consultations are being introduced rapidly and on a large scale across health care. Telemedicine will usher a new light towards achieving the target of reaching out the benefits of IT at the grassroots level at a much larger pace. These days, Technology has reached such robustness, that it is just waiting to be embraced.

We, at our CSCs, aim to offer the much required health services via the power, reach and utility of technology, assess and highlight the need for health based interventions, and provide insight for possible solutions. We aim to not only heal the people, but also help increase their awareness about health, making way for a healthier and more aware individual and collectively, the whole nation.

Our services include Telemedicine, Tele-ophthalmology, Tele-homeopathy, Diagnostic services, Awareness building of the rural population and more. One of the prominent rural services in the area of health sector is providing consultation through telemedicine services, whose ICT requirement is fully mapped with the centers. Telemedicine makes it possible to connect health specialists from one end of the world, to patients in the remotest corners – anywhere and anytime. The Common Service Centers, or CSCs, are using telemedicine to provide expert health services to millions of Indians in the remotest parts of the country.

Apollo Tele-Ophthalmology services

India is a land of two worlds in relation to health care services to its people. On one end of the spectrum we have cutting edge technology, advancements in clinical sciences, skill sets among the medical fraternity to perform some of the most complex health interventions and procedures, making India a health care destination for even some of the developed countries. On the other end of the spectrum we have needless mortality due lack of service provisioning in some remote parts of the country. The public health system has been striving to address this challenge of health care service provisioning to such difficult geographies but they are plagued by inherent challenges of scarcity of medical professionals, incentive and motivation for such skilled resources to provide their services in such locations. The estimated doctor population ratio in India is 0.7: 10002 compared to Global average of 1.4, we have a deficit of almost 2.8 Lakh Doctors similarly there is a need for almost 23,00,000 paramedical work force to meet the health care service requirements of the Country.

Apollo Tele-Ophthalmology services has signed a partnership agreement with the Common Services Centers Scheme of the Government of India to enable Primary opinion services through tele consultations for eye realted diseases to CSCs in the Country. The primary objective of the collaborative partnership is to provide grass root level access points for Health Literacy among the communities, develop health seeking behaviour and to promote preventive health care services among the rural populace.

Our Mission: Making comprehensive eye care available, affordable, accessible and sustainable.
            Blindness Scenario in India: There are 37 million people blind in the world. 1/3rd of these blind people live in India. 80% of blindness is avoidable (cataract and refractive errors). Majority of the blind live in rural areas, while most of the eye care services and facilities are available in urban areas.
            Venu has developed a unique 3-tier service delivery network, in response to the felt need of the patient, to ensure quality eye care services reach the poor and needy in the rural areas. It has a tertiary Base Referral & Teaching Hospital in Delhi, 5 rural secondary level Satellite Hospitals and 14 primary level Vision Centres in Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttarakhand. It organizes 500 eye screening camps.
Since its inception Venu has treated 6.5 million patients and operated 0.42 million.
50% of patients are treated free.
            Income generated from the 50% paying patients subsidize the 50% free patients.
            Venu is a university recognized teaching & training centre for post graduate and undergraduate teaching programmes for Doctors and Optometrists.

Venu has been providing eye care using tele-ophthalmology since 2009 through its Vision Centres located at Jhajhar, Alwar, Gohana and Pataudi.
Venu has successfully completed a study ‘Evaluation of the effectiveness of diagnostic and management decision by tele-ophthalmology using indigenous equipment in comparison with in-clinic assessment of patients’.
The study found that the efficacy and sensitivity were comparable to tele-ophthalmic diagnosis reported from other worldwide studies.
It is based on the results of this study that the CSC project was conceived.
The Tele-ophthalmology project is a path-breaking new venture that marries technology and expertise with compassion, via a revolutionary self-sustaining model.
Conceived by the team at Venu, and under execution in collaboration with the Departments of Science & Technology and Information Technology, Government of India, this project promises to revolutionise the field of accessible eye care in India.
Currently, we are conducting it as a controlled pilot project wherein 10 Village Level Entrepreneurs (VLEs) are being trained to enable them to add e-health services at the Common Service Centres that they are already managing, under the Government of India’s e-governance initiative.
Once executed with success in the pilot stage, this project will be replicated across the country.
