Telemedicine centers bring quality, affordable medical treatment to India’s hundreds of millions of poor people.

Patients schedule a doctor’s “visit” at the center, and consult with a doctor by video about symptoms and care. The nurse will measure vital signs like blood pressure and heartbeat, through equipment that transmits readings directly to the doctor and into a patient’s computerized medical file.

Total cost to the patient: 50 rupees, or about 96 U.S. cents.

According to a recent study by Polycom, more teachers are aware of the power of video conferencing technology and an increasing number want to use it to enhance communication.

More than three-quarters of British teachers would like access to video conferencing technology so they can have digital meetings with pupils, their parents and colleagues when face-to-face meetings are not possible. The driving force behind demand for the technology appears to be its ability to increase engagement.
