Telemedicine

Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute today provides diagnostic and tertiary treatment facilities to cancer patients of West Bengal and Eastern region of the country. The Institute is well equipped to handle the large number of patients who regularly attend the OPD. However it has been observed that delayed referrals, irregular follow up and inability to reach the Institute in time are some of the reasons for which treatment results are often disappointing. Recognizing the importance of Telemedicine in providing services to cancer patients, CNCI is presently actively participating in the West Bengal Telemedicine Project. This is expected to benefit cancer patients, particularly those from remote areas and also allow CNCI to be connected to the other Regional Cancer Centers (RCC) to form a national cancer network. Webel ECS Ltd, the implementing agent for the West Bengal Telemedicine Project is presently providing logistic & manpower support to CNCI with regard to developing the telemedicine facility in CNCI.
