Telemedicine Practice Course for Ayush Practitioners



Digital health policy promotes the use of digital tools to enhance the efficiency and outcomes of the healthcare system. One key aspect of this policy is the emphasis on telemedicine services, particularly in grassroots health and wellness centers. These centers aim to connect patients with doctors through technology platforms, facilitated by mid-level healthcare providers or workers. This ensures that patients receive timely and optimal care.

However, the lack of clear guidelines has created confusion among registered medical professionals in the AYUSH systems, hindering the practice of telemedicine. To address this issue, an online foundation course called the "Telemedicine Practice Course for Ayush Practitioners" has been created. This course is a significant step towards regulating telemedicine practices within the AYUSH systems. Its main objective is to equip AYUSH practitioners with the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively utilize telemedicine tools. The course offers online classes, study materials, and interactive sessions with experts.

The AYUSH Telemedicine Practice Course has been designed by experienced professionals who have been practicing telemedicine for many years and are members from technology and heath societies like the Telemedicine Society of India, Medical Computer Society and technology platform like Medindia and Doctorguru. It adheres to the compliance standards outlined in the "Telemedicine Practice Guidelines for Ayurveda, Siddha, and Unani Practitioners" released by the Central Council of Indian Medicine, Government of India.

These guidelines provide practical advice to AYUSH registered medical practitioners, encouraging them to incorporate telemedicine into their regular practice. The faculty of the course have already trained over 7,500 allopathic doctors through online live course delivery and interaction and have received excellent feedback.

If interested in taking the course, please register for the course. The course will include live interactions with faculty members, after a certain number of participants register for such an interaction. The live interaction provides an opportunity to clarify any doubts or questions you may have regarding telemedicine guidelines.
