There are essentially only two problems, which plague the development of healthcare in third world countries. The first is a shortage of medical expertise and the second is the difficulty to teach rural communities. To solve these problems, most countries would setup clinics manned by nurses who in turn will consult doctors through phone calls or periodic visits. As such, we propose a new system in which the nurses or the patients themselves seek medical advise through a user-friendly system built on natural speech technology developed on field of telemedicine.
