Abstract: Background : Telehealth is defined as synchronous or asynchronous consultation using information and Communication technologies such as telephone, video conferencing, or secure messaging to overcome geographical and functional distance. In the current pandemic scenario, telemedicine can supplement health-care delivery in the absence of in-person visit.

As there has been a dearth in studies assessing challenges, our study aimed to identify limitations and problems of telemedicine services faced by population.

A total of 390 patients who used telemedicine services atleast once during COVID pandemic were considered by multistage random sampling technique and study was done for a period of 2 months.
