Potraz launches telemedicine pilot project
Published: 25 July 2018
The Postal and Telecommunications Regulatory Authority of Zimbabwe (Potraz) has launched a telemedicine pilot project in Manicaland.

The move is aimed at expanding the Pan African e-network telemedicine from the hub, Parirenyatwa Central Hospital, in Harare, to Provincial, District and Rural Health Centres Clinics in order to improve access and delivery of medical services to remote and rural areas after partnering the International Telecommunications Union ( ITU) on a project.

Telemedicine is an ICT-based health care model, which can be used as a tool for providing specialist medical attention to patients in any type of medical institution, especially remote rural areas with marginal or no power or telephone connection, using off-site specialists.
