History of Telemedicine in Nepal
In 1995, an Ohio based INGO, United Hands to Nepal (UHN) came up with an idea of serving rural hospitals in Nepal through telehealth by connecting doctors and nurses of Nepal to Doctors in Columbus, Ohio. This is how telemedicine was born in Nepal. At that time, Dr. Anu Amatya was one of the founding directors of UHN and had played the instrumental role in creating UHN while undergoing post graduate pediatric training at Columbus Children's Hospital in Ohio, USA.
Telemedicine is an important tool that provides clinical health care from a distance. It helps to eliminate the difficulties of distance and allows prompt access to essential medical services. This also allows families and children to get medical assistance in-case of illnesses and emergencies. During travel, Nepal bandhas, at night and after hours, or at dire times like in the recent pandemic when one is unable to leave home, telemedicine is readily available. With the help of telemedicine, your queries and concerns get answered regarding your child’s medical issues, via virtual consultation using internet applications like Zoom, Viber, WhatsApp, Skype or simple email. This will bolster continued care and improved pediatric health services of Kopila even after office hours.
Here at Kopila, we strive to achieve excellence through renewed knowledge and innovations. We work together to provide the best care for our patients and their families. With the help of Telemedicine, we hope to make a meaningful impact and make significant differences in our service.
For the past two decades, we have been maintaining clinical data of every child visiting us. This makes Telemedicine more efficient for us as we can refer back to every child’s growth, development, immunizations, medications used and all the clinical tests that were done. As a result, children now can enjoy our specialized pediatric health care services within the comforts of their home.
Travel Medicine is a highly dynamic specialty
focusing on pre-travel preventive care.
We have been providing this service for the past 2 decades, thanks to our expertise on pre-travel counselling and vaccinations. Irrespective of the travel destination, there is always a big risk of getting exposed to the destination-specific organisms and getting severely ill. This is specifically true when travelling to the developing countries as many vaccine preventable diseases are still commonly found despite having been eradicated from the developed world.
At Kopila, we provide advise on the most appropriate risk management interventions to individual children and adults based on their destination-specific risks and prevent adverse health outcomes during travel. The risk prevention interventions range from personalized Vaccinations and medications (depending upon the destination, itinerary and the amount of time available before departure and traveler’s immunization history) to providing an emergency medical kit (stocked with essential medicines that might be needed during travel). This is further backed by our state-of-art Telemedicine service, which is available to all patients on 24/7 basis.
