Meshnet Conceptualization for Health Services in Nagaland

The pilot project is implemented on joint venture by Mission for Geo-spatial Application, Department of Science & Technology, Govt. of India and GIS & Remote Sensing Centre, Planning Department, Govt. of Nagaland.
In a state like Nagaland where the total area is 16,579 sq, with many hilly and rugged terrain which are still inaccessible, the Department aimed to provide for an accessible, affordable, acceptable and accountable health care through a functional public health system comprising of District Hospitals, Community Health Centers (CHCs), Primary Health Centers (PHCs), Sub Centers (SCs) and Big Dispensaries.
At present challenge is to make basic health care accessible for the masses while utilizing the existing human resources available with the department. To extend the basic minimum healthcare for state�s population which is predominantly rural and distributed across distant geographical terrains; it has been envisioned to introduce Meshnet system through which specialists at higher health units can diagnose a patient from lower health units , prescribe medication and treatment, or even perform surgery through Live HD-quality video assistant without having the patient spend time and money traveling to a major town or city for treatment.
The proposed solution “Meshnet Technology” will enable point to point communication between the different health centres at a speed of 150 MBPS � 200 MBPS. Having high bandwidth, Meshnet technology is initially envisage for use in performing Live surgery in the remote/rural area with assistant from Specialist from NHAK using HD quality video camera and to support/supplement the Telemedicine system. But in addition, meshnet will also be use for setting-up video conferencing environment that will empower individual health centre to connect easily with higher level institutes with specialists and Medical Directorate for face-to-face communication with the click of a mouse button.

Implementation of Meshnet for Health Services
