Thank you for your interesting and timely post!
We're looking for digital home telehealth technology products we can distribute in Hawaii and elsewhere.
Are you or any of your readers aware of any telehealth products made in India which might be suitable for the US marketplace?
We're also looking for a partner in India.
Thank you,
