Yogi govt to set up ‘Digital Doctor Clinics’

Lucknow : The Uttar Pradesh government will establish ‘Digital Doctor Clinics’ in rural regions to improve healthcare services in rural and remote areas of the state. These ‘Digital Doctor Clinics’ will function like primary health centres, where not only consultation of doctors will be available through online video conferences, but also medications along with laboratory facilities.

Currently, this Digital Doctor Clinic is part of a pilot project and will be opened soon in a total of 20 centres in Lucknow and Bulandshahr. After this, it will be expanded across the entire state. According to the government spokesman, the state government is undertaking this initiative through private investments. The government aims to improve healthcare in remote rural areas so that people can receive medical advice, medications, and pathology testing at concessional rates for serious illnesses. The Yogi government has signed an MoU of Rs 350 crore with Obdu Group for this project. The Obdu Group will establish this project even before the Ground Breaking Ceremony.
