Telemedicine makes geography history

It may never ever be possible to spend Rs 30,000 crore annually to put up, every year, 750 hospitals of 250 beds each, to achieve the minimum WHO (the World Health Organisation) standards.

Ganapathy, Head of the Division of Stereotactic Radiosurgery in Apollo Hospitals Chennai, and President of the Apollo Telemedicine Networking Foundation.
