Impact of Internet on delivery of critical cardiac health care: A case study from India
A case study has been conducted in India to estimate the impact of Internet on delivery of critical health care. Time series data on discharge and death from intensive cardiac care units have been collected from three individual centers that are under the Internet based telemedicine project of a private public partnership. Logistic Regression analysis has been performed to estimate the response parameters and test of hypotheses. The results confirm the effectiveness of using Internet in providing critical cardiac care to patients. The findings can be utilized to increase the number of local telemedicine centers in remote and underdeveloped areas.
