Union Minister of State for Labour and Employment Bandaru Dattatreya inaugurated the first phase of telemedicine services of Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) here today for providing specialist medical services at a distance to insured workers. With this facility, ESIC Model Hospital at Basaidarapur has been connected with three ESIS dispensaries at Katihar (Bihar), Unnao (UP) and Rudarpur (Uttrachal).
ESIC has launched an ambitious pilot project of telemedicine services at 11 ESI locations in coordination with C-DAC, Mohali under the aegis of “Digital Inclusive and Smart Community (DISC)” which is a part of Digital India Programmed of Government of India.
So let’s do:
1. Who is the union minister for Labour and Employment?
2. Expand the term ESIC?
