Intelehealth is a mobile app that improves access to comprehensive primary health care for remote & underserved communities through telemedicine

Empower local health workers

A health worker can screen and triage for common health conditions in their communities like fever, chest pain, back pain. Using Intelehealth, the health worker can start a patient consultation, collect health information and then connect with a remote doctor for a diagnosis, prescription or referral.


Use a Knowledge Engine

The app uses a customizable knowledge engine with protocols for comprehensive primary care. These guide the health worker through asking the right questions & collecting detailed diagnostic information. Our protocols are developed by a team of doctors using evidence based methodologies.



Connect with remote doctors

We use an open source electronic health record system, OpenMRS, to ensure reliable communication between the patient and the doctor and ensure longitudinal management of patient data.

Communicate over
low bandwidth data connections

Our software is designed to work in the remotest of areas, over a 2G data connection or SMS if there's no data connection at all. Even in places slower than dial-up!
