Telehealth has evolved as a very comprehensive tool for treating patients with mild to moderate symptoms across the globe during the global pandemic. Adoption of Telehealth in India posed special challenges because of its diversity in languages. Lack of proper healthcare infastructure and especially poor network connectivity have affected pre-hospitalisation care. We have developed an easy to use replicable tool and shown the path to succesful telecare for affected communities. Methods MedicAidTM – an EMR software has been used along with Zoom® to quickly provide online consultations for COVID patients, individually and in groups. Results A total of 60 COVID patients were given online consultation and provided support with recovery in all. Conclusion Group based community care is safe for mass treatment of COVID.
