New Online Technology for Kilchoan Patients

Telehealth-BoothNoticing that poor people, who are ill, often fail to access healthcare services, a new technology is on the way of its development in Kilchoan, the West Highland village, a recent report has uncovered.

The online technology has been dubbed "Telehealth Booth", which would particularly be meant for the village patients on the Ardnamurchan peninsula, which is the western-most point on mainland Britain.

The aim of the development of this technology is to ease patients as health experts sit miles away from their residences. It is being said that the new technology would allow patients to be diagnosed through an internet satellite call, when doctors would be sitting in an emergency care centre only.

An Emergency First Responders scheme was introduced in the Ardnamurchan community after two GPs and a district nurse got retired. The success of the same has called for the initiative to take place. Health secretary Alex Neil had visited Ardnamurchan the previous day so as to hear about the project.

The project has five volunteers till now. The new scheme has been claimed as akin to Skype when it comes to operations. It is being hoped that it would come into picture within a few weeks or a bit later.
