COMMON SERVICES CENTRES

Common Services Centers (CSCs) are a strategic cornerstone of the Digital India programme. They are the access points for delivery of various electronic services to villages in India, thereby contributing to a digitally and financially inclusive society.

CSCs enable the three vision areas of the Digital India programme:

Digital Infrastructure as a Core Utility to Every Citizen



CSCs are more than service delivery points in rural India. They are positioned as change agents, promoting rural entrepreneurship and building rural capacities and livelihoods. They are enablers of community participation and collective action for engendering social change through a bottom-up approach with key focus on the rural citizen.


Pradhan Mantri Gramin Digital Saksharta Abhiyaan is the scheme to make six crore persons in rural areas, across States/UTs, digitally literate, reaching to around 40% of rural households by covering one member from every eligible household by 31st March, 2019.

The Scheme would empower the citizens in rural areas by training them to operate computer or digital access devices (like tablets, smart phones etc.), send and receive e-mails, browse Internet, access Government services, search for information, undertake digital payment etc. and hence enable them to use the Information Technology and related applications especially Digital Payments to actively participate in the process of nation building. The Scheme aims to bridge the digital divide, specifically targeting the rural population including the marginalised sections of society like Scheduled Castes (SC) / Scheduled Tribes (ST), Minorities, Below Poverty Line (BPL), women and differently-abled persons and minorities.

TELEMEDICINE

Telemedicine simply means the use of communications and information technology for the delivery of clinical care. It can be as simple as two healthcare experts discussing a patient over the phone or as complex as using satellite technology and facilities such as video conferencing for real-time consultation between a doctor and a patient sitting in a remote corner of the world. These telemedicine consultations can be divided into two categories: 'synchronous telemedicine' utilizes telecommunications for real time interactions between participants (e.g. video conferencing), and 'store-and forward' telemedicine which involves the capture of patient data for subsequent interpretation by a remote expert

BENEFITS OF TELEMEDICINE:

•    Telemedicine is a great option for patients who find it difficult to travel to clinics or hospitals to consult with a doctor.

•    The costs associated with physical visits to hospitals or doctor's offices can substantially reduce for both patient and doctor, by using telemedicine technologies like video conferencing.

•    Telemedicine is also proving to be the ideal way to manage chronic conditions and administer preventive medicine.

•    By facilitating communication between doctors and patients, telemedicine makes it easy to monitor discharged patients and track patient recovery

•    Research shows that the use of telemedicine technologies results in fewer hospital re-admissions, more faithful following of prescribed courses of treatment, and faster recovery than that of patients not receiving remote treatment and consultation.

•    With the help of telemedicine hospitals can create networks to help each other. They can share their expertise outside their own set-ups to advise their colleagues on the treatment of their patients.
