Abstract: “Health is not everything, but everything is after health”, no one will disagree with this statement. However, if we talk about the current scenario of Indian rural health care system, it is facing a crisis as compared to any other social sector. Nearly 86% of all the medical visit in India are made by remote area residence with majority still travelling more than 100 km to avail health care facility of which 70-80% is born out of pocket, landing them in poverty. In India, around 27% of total population lives in urban areas where more than 75% of total health care infrastructure is available and rest is for more than 80% of the population of rural areas, with this figure we can easily predict that rural population is witnessing the lack of proper primary healthcare facilities. According to a KMPG report, “74% of Indian doctors are catering to the needs of the urban population.” India is undergoing rapid epidemiological transition as a consequence of economic and social change. Due to the lack of basic health care infra in rural areas people are not aware of many diseases and they do not go through proper consultation. Some 2.4 million Indians die of treatable conditions every year, the worst situation among 136 nations studied for a report published in The Lancet. So, we come across a solution that how we can facilitate this problem in which we can connect the rural India about their basic health requirement using the technology
