Abstract: Telemedicine is one of the latest evolutions of information communication technology (ICT). Telemedicine can be used as an effective means of delivering quality healthcare to the rural people. The resource availability is comparatively less for healthcare to reach the rural masses. Telemedicine helps the rural people to get access to expert advice and reducing their health risks. Andhra Pradesh Vaidhya Vidhana Parishad (APVVP), the supervisory body for all the government hospitals in Andhra Pradesh is spearheading the telemedicine implementation at 24 district hospitals with the help of Care and Apollo hospitals. These services heavily rely on ICTs in enabling quality healthcare to reach the rural areas. This paper analyses the application of telemedicine technology towards benefiting the rural people.
