In rural India, poor people can’t afford to visit a doctor, and when they do, the care is often of poor quality. Intelehealth equips community health worker with “smart tablets” that allows them to provide sophisticated care, and connects patients with more complicated conditions to well-trained doctors via high-quality video. Combining community care with a direct line to doctors and access to reliable, inexpensive pharmacies, Intelehealth provides rural end-to-end telemedicine that is better than what most people get in the city.
