On 6 June 2023, Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel flagged off the new initiative of the district administration 'Doctor Tumcho Duar' at a program organized at village Bedma of Keskal Development Block.
- Under this pilot project, medical facilities will be made available through telemedicine in the inaccessible villages of Baderajpur and Pharasgaon development blocks of the district. For this, a call centre will be set up and 24-hour staff will be deployed in the call centre.
- As soon as the call is received from the call centre, the team made up of doctors, ANMs and other staff will be informed. The doctor will discuss with the sick person and their family members and consult through teleconferencing and for serious patients who need immediate treatment, the doctor & his team will reach home with the vehicle and treat the patient. If necessary, they will be brought to the hospital and treated.
- It is known that the Haat Bazaar Clinic Scheme is already being successfully operated for treatment in remote areas in the district. In such a situation, efforts are being made by 'Doctor Tumcho Duar' to provide accessible health facilities even in inaccessible villages of the district and to provide medical facilities to more and more people through telemedicine.
- If this scheme is successful, the scheme will be extended to other development blocks as well. This scheme is based on the government's initiative of equal justice, equal facilities for all.
