Calcutta, Jan. 30: Krishnagar was today connected with the state’s apex teaching hospital, SSKM, on the tele-medicine network. Malda and Balurghat will be the next.

Infotech minister Manab Mukherjee said: “We have successfully treated 1,500 patients and are planning to spread the network set up with technology from Isro (Indian Space Research Organisation).”

The V-sat technology being used here is safer and much faster than fibre optic connectivity, which we see being used in tele-medicine in the state, said Isro director K.. Sankaran.
