The Public Health Ministry revealed that since 25 percent of patients at provincial hospitals could be treated at community clinics

The Public Health Ministry revealed that since 25 percent of patients at provincial hospitals could be treated at community clinics, the Ministry plans to use telemedicine technology so that patients from remote areas could receive treatment without having to travel to provincial centres which are often too distant and crowded and also add to the work overload of doctors at these main provincial hospitals. This will also help prepare Thailand in providing better public services as the country progresses towards an aging society. The public ministry will collaborate with the Office of the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications (NBTC) to implement this telemedicine scheme, a system that will revolutionize access to medical treatments and consultations with physicians for patients  living in remote areas, such as face-to-face communication from
nearby health centres without the hassle and risks of traveling to distant provincial centres. A series of pilot projects will be initiated at eight provinces before being expanded to other areas of the country.
