CENTER For rural healthcare & telemedicine (crht)
Providing healthcare in Nepal is challenging due to the difficult geographic terrain, limited availability of funding and many other issues. In order to match the success achieved in this area by many developed countries, it is necessary to efficiently use the available resources. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is one of the few technologies in medicine that continues to become more affordable and efficient. Therefore, phect-NEPAL utilizes ICT wherever possible. As a result, telemedicine and tele-education have become distinctive features of phect-NEPAL.
Regular tele-consultation and continuing medical education (CME) sessions via video conferencing are held by CRHT for our healthcare personel at KMH and KH. More advanced telemedicine practices are expected to be achieved in the near future.
