Rural area people have a major issue in availing specialized doctor’s facility. A single device acquiring all the health data of the patients and transferring the data to a specialized doctor would be an ideal device in this scenario. This device would acts as a data acquisition and storing warehouse. This type of device which is a part of the health delivery system architecture eliminates the involvement of too many test reports. Combination of this type of system architecture along with the kiosk model shall be very helpful in the rural areas.

TBI VLSI Health Lab is an experimental lab for such a health delivery model.
