Meena and employees of Chasnala Dispensary were associated with patient Mona Devi during the treatment session.
During the teleconsultation, the doctors interacted with the patient Mona Devi and asked her to take the necessary medications for her treatment. Personnel working in the mine like Chasnala, Jitpur, etc. included in the Colliery division of BSL can take advantage of this facility. Thus, with the introduction of the telemedicine facility, now patients in remote areas, if they want to seek advice or consultation from BGH specialist doctors, can easily obtain it by videoconference. In addition, arrangements have been made to transport any serious patients in the event of an emergency.
