The Tele-ECG link between STS-BSF Hospital at Yelahanka and Narayana Health City in Bangalore was inaugurated recently by Dr. Devi Shetty Chairman, Narayana Health in the presence of Mr. Vimal Satyarthi, DIG & Commandant, and Border Security Force. Dr. Mukesh Saxena, IG/Director (Medical) FHQ BSF New Delhi presided over the function and Dr. V G Talawar, Vice –Chancellor, Reva University, Bangalore was the Guest of Honor.
This is the first Tele-ECG link installed for the BSF. Tele-ECG links will be established with all other BSF units across India in the next six to eight months. Narayana Health currently has more than 850 Tele-ECG links across the country.
Addressing the BSF Jawans at the inaugural function about innovation in healthcare delivery, Dr. Devi Shetty, Chairman – Narayana Health said, “There is a scarcity of access to quality healthcare and specialist doctors in the borders of our country. With innovative technology today, we are able to bridge the gap and enable better access to healthcare delivery through connected care and mobility solutions that are cost effective and simple to use.” Tele-ECG is a cost-effective and convenient tool for diagnosis and monitoring of heart diseases and thus improves quality and accessibility, especially in remote areas.
Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial to ensure sustainable medical treatment. Tele-ECG is a convenient tool to distinguish individuals with suspected heart diseases that may require urgent referral to a tertiary care hospital or even emergency medical intervention.
BSF at Yelahanka in Bangalore has organized various health awareness and screening camps in association with Narayana Health City. Doctors from Narayana Health provide speciality consultation and medical advice to the troops of BSF and their families. A free breast cancer screening camp using mobile mammography was held recently apart from screening camps for renal disease as well as bone and joint pain apart from free heart check-up camps.
About Narayana Health: From a humble beginning of a 225 bed hospital in 2000, Narayana Health group of hospitals has grown to become a 6655 beds healthcare conglomerate with 32 hospitals across 20 cities.
