India headquarters in Delhi watches Dr Prabhat Kumar Chand from NIHMANS conduct his weekly clinic on screen from Bengaluru Top News IT IS 2 pm Dr Prabhat Kumar Chand a specialist dealing with substance-use disorders at the National Institute of Mental Health and Neuroscience (NIMHANS) in Bengaluru speaks into the microphone: “Thought Impulse and Cannabis — that is the topic of discussion today Let’s begin” His audience of 15 community healthcare providers is spread far and wide from Kabul in Afghanistan to Idukki in Kerala and Dr Chand realises it’s important that his message breaks down those distances and reaches the last patient possible This is one of India’s 15 clinics under ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) a concept of weekly or fortnightly virtual clinics that use teleconferencing to bridge the gap in healthcare resources by using the best specialists to reach out to underserved areas But unlike telemedicine ECHO clinics do not provide care directly to patients Instead they equip primary healthcare clinicians — doctors nurses and other health workers — in remote areas with the knowledge and support to manage complex cases Essentially it brings specialist care and knowledge to areas where there is none At the Virtual Knowledge Network Centre on the NIMHANS campus Dr Chand has moved on to questions “Which receptor is responsible for cannabis-induced behavioural or psychological symptom” he asks Among the first to respond is a doctor from Kabul followed by answers from Bhilai in Chhattisgarh Sivasagar in Assam Idukki in Kerala and Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh A detailed discussion follows “These virtual clinics help provide excellent specialty care to patients in their own communities It the best tool to bridge the huge treatment gap in mental health in India” says Dr Chand after the meeting He adds that he and his team have managed to reach out to over 700 healthcare professionals since NIMHANS became part of the ECHO project in 2014 Project ECHO began in 2003 in New Mexico when Dr Sanjeev Arora a liver disease specialist in Albuquerque US realised that there were thousands of people in the state of New Mexico with Hepatitis C but with no access to treatment because there were no specialists where they lived It’s then that Dr Arora began ECHO bringing together local clinicians and specialists through weekly virtual clinics India’s first ECHO clinic began in 2008 as a collaboration between the National Aids Control Organisation (NACO) and Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC) on managing HIV AIDS patients Since then ECHO clinics in the country have tackled addiction and substance use disorders mental health tuberculosis hepatitis C liver diseases cancer screening and prevention among others Many of the best healthcare institutes in the country are part of the ECHO bandwagon The Tata Memorial Centre a premier institute for treatment and research on cancer has launched an ambitious plan to connect 86 hospitals using the ECHO platform The session started on December 16 last year and is held twice a week “We call it the ‘hub and spoke’ model The hub is the hospital or centre of expertise and spokes are the healthcare practitioners in rural and underserved areas” says Dr Sunil Anand executive director of the project Less than 200 km away from NIMHANS is the tribal village of Gumballi with a population of just under 16000 people The village has one primary health centre (PHC) where community health workers offer immunisation and other basic healthcare needs However over the last one year thanks to an ECHO clinic thousands of kilometres away the health workers of Gumballi have been delivering a specialised service: screening of cancer at the village level The Institute of Cytology and Preventive Oncology (ICPO) the research wing of the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in Delhi has been training healthcare workers of Gumballi to conduct cancer screening Dr Anand says that when the project began there in 2015 ICPO staff visited the village and provided four days of intensive training in cancer detection to PHC workers “Subsequently every fortnight through the virtual ECHO clinic we discuss patient cases If someone in the village is screened positive for the disease they are treated at the Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology in Bengaluru” he says adding that 11342 people in Gumballi have been screened For all the latest Lifestyle News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Express News Service | Rajkot | Published: March 26 2009 12:00 am

thanks to 25D curved glass and metal frames Here is our full review Related News LG is back with a mid-budget device – the K10 (2017) The smartphone is a successor of LG K0 (2016) which was priced at Rs 13500 The new K10 has undergone a few changes in terms of design though the price remains nearly the same LG has added Indianised prints on the smart cover to make it look more stylish which now comes in several colours The power button in LG K10 (2017) now doubles as a SOS button when pressed thrice The new phone runs Android 70 Nougat of the box Previously LG launched its K7 smartphone along with the K10 as well However the company has not revealed plans to bring K7 (2017) to India LG K10 (2017) LG K10 (2017) looks slightly better than its predecessor thanks to 25D curved glass and metal frames The smartphone comes with a bigger battery and runs Nougat However the rest of the specifications remain the same We reviewed LG K10 (2017) for a week and here’s what we thought of the smartphone I didn’t not like the design of LG K10 (2017) Even with metallic frames and 25D glass design the phone failed to impress me in terms of design especially when I look at competition like Moto G5 Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo K6 Power Specs: 53-inch HD in-cell display | MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor | 2 GB RAM + 16 GB storage space | 13 megapixel rear and 5 megapixel front camera | 2800 mAh battery| Android 70 Nougat OS | dual-SIM with 4G VoLTE support Price: Rs 13990 What’s good LG K10 (2017)’s review unit came with smart cover which now has an Indianised design and looks great The cover has a textured back which makes the phone less slippery and easy to hold However on its own the K10 is slippery so a cover is must The smart cover displays calls and notifications from apps on a horizontal strip It is pretty convenient to use as it allowed us to answer calls or switch off the alarm even with the cover closed However with the cover on I faced problems accessing volume rocker keys which are present on the left side of the phone LG K10 (2017)’s review unit came with smart cover which now has an Indianised design and looks great The rear camera produces good results when used in bright outdoors The colour reproduction is fairly accurate and images appear sharp as well In low-light pictures tend to have a lot of noise with missing details Also it is quite difficult to focus in low-light with rear camera The front camera just like Oppo F3 comes with a group selfie mode along with the usual single selfie mode It comes with strong beautification filters something you realise as soon as you open the front camera app The soft glow can be reduced to zero to click normal real life selfies There are other filters as well Even in well-lit outdoors the selfies lack detail and appear grainy though the colour reproduction is good Camera sample from K10 (2017) (Image resized for web) Camera sample from K10 (2017) (Image resized

well I didn’t face app crashes or lags during the review period However the phone starts to get warm starting upper back within 3-4 minutes of playing graphic heavy games like Asphalt-8 Battery is another area where LG K10 (2017) lags LG K10 (2017) on the other hand comes with just 2800mAh battery which is a disappointment given the price point Just like its predecessor the K10 (2017) comes with a host of handy customisations which I like Some include the ability to set up to five on screen navigation buttons on the home screen and capture option in the drop down menu that allows for taking quick notes Additionally it comes with SOS button that lets you send distress messages to pre-set contacts by pressing the power button thrice What’s not good I didn’t not like the design of LG K10 (2017) Even with metallic frames and 25D glass design the phone failed to impress me in terms of design especially when I look at competition like Moto G5 Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 and Lenovo K6 Power The smartphone has a plastic removable back and though it doesn’t look cheap we expected a lot better on the design front The smartphone has a plastic removable back and though it doesn’t look cheap we expected a lot better on the design front Battery is another area where LG K10 (2017) lags LG K10 (2017) comes with just 2800mAh battery which is a disappointment given the price point Plus it takes three hours or more to fully charge the smartphone The display in LG K10 looks washed out and colours don’t look so great either I had to turn the brightness levels to maximum to view the display in bright outdoors This is a bit of a letdown given a lot of smartphones in the same range offer a Full HD display The power button in LG K10 (2017) now doubles as a SOS button when pressed thrice The fingerprint scanner is not the quickest I’ve come across in a smartphone It took me at least two to three attempts with the sensor almost every time I tried to unlock the phone Plus if you are a new LG user you might take a little time getting used to the power button at the back Verdict LG K10 (2017)is hard to recommend given there are a lot better options in the same price range For Rs 13000 you can easily get a bigger battery Full HD display and definitely a better design (that’s subjective though) in a smartphone For instance there’s Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 Moto G5 Lenovo Vibe K5 Note or even Honor 6X that offers a dual rear camera setup means that for LG K10 convincing potential buyers will be very hard For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App IE Online
