TWIVES is a web-based video consult application for rural and remote care that allows a patient to connect with remotely. TWIVES offers a cost effective solution that patients can potentially use from the comfort of their homes and does not depend on elaborate hardware and specialized software. This in essence removes the need to commute from rural and remote communities to cities or facilities, for consultations. With a simple Internet device, community health workers who are registered with TWIVES, as well as enrolled patients, can connect with and access the services of healthcare providers at distant locations for delivery of care.
