Tele-medicine provides monitored appropriate medical care from a distance. It helps to integrate scattered healthcare, whilst cutting down on the cost of care. Healthcare is a very dynamic and complex industry whose cost continues to rise. Elements that contribute to the rising costs of healthcare include its highly fragmented and regional character, and a largely unmet need to seek efficiencies. These factors lead to a broad array of the population remaining medically underserved. These include children, the elderly, women, the uninsured and underinsured, the poor, those living in rural areas, people with chronic illnesses, and people living with HIV/AIDS

Working with the relevant authorities and strategic partners, NigComSat-1R’s tele-medicine application will facilitate higher quality medical healthcare.
