According to a statement made by an official spokeswoman, a delegation from Medical Dialogues had previously claimed that a private company of doctors based in Delhi had suggested the provision of telemedicine facilities in remote areas of Ladakh. The suggestion was delivered to R. K. Mathur, the Lieutenant Governor of Ladakh, in New Delhi by a group of medical professionals led by the director of Medijunction smart healthcare private limited. The delegation was there to present the proposition. The spokesman for the delegation stated that the group advocated establishing telemedicine healthcare facilities in addition to the physical presence of medical staff in Ladakh’s outlying regions. This medical staff would include physicians and nurses. According to him, they also discussed offering instant healthcare services at patients’ doorsteps and digital ICUs (intensive care units). He added that the delegation also advocated building up rural digital clinics, integrating multiple services, and appropriately utilising doctors’ time.
