The digital health technologies of teleradiology, teleconsultations, and teleICU will be housed in the new telecommand center.
The Telecommand Centre and Digital Health facility of Aster DM Healthcare, a GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) and India-based healthcare provider, has opened in Bengaluru, India. All telehealth services, including teleradiology, teleconsultations, teleICU, and remote monitoring, are offered under one roof at the new center, which makes use of cutting-edge technology. The facility employs a skilled medical staff that is able to remotely monitor and treat patients in real time, offering expert guidance and care from a distance.
