Bangalore: The National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), Assam together with the Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Assam launched first of its kind Tele Radiology Project in public health sector of India in a public private partnership model with HealthFore Technologies.

The project was inaugurated by Shri Ghulam Nabi Azad, Honb’le Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare in the presence of Shri Tarun Gogoi, Honb’le Chief Minister, Assam, Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, Honb’le Minister of Health and Family Welfare, Assam and Smt. Anuradha Gupta, Additional Secretary and Mission Director, NRHM, Pankaj Vaish, CEO represented HealthFore Technologies.

With the aim to make radiology services accessible and affordable to the entire rural populace of Assam; Department of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of Assam has been commissioning Regional Diagnostic Centers (RDC) and equipping them with CT and X-Ray modalities. However, over the years, it was observed that the full potential of these centers were not been realized owing to the glaring lack of Radiologists in the state, especially for most of the rural areas where the Radiologists are sparsely available. In 2012, NRHM, Assam decided to introduce next-gen Tele Radiology solution to the established infrastructure.

Under this program, the existing CT and X-Ray machines are being enabled for transmitting digital images of the scans (DICOM compatibility) at the RDC, which are then connected by fibre optic/UBR/ADSL/3G to the Central Data Center (CDC) in Guwahati.
