Telemedicine services in India are underutilized. Otolaryngology provides a unique opportunity to adopt telemedicine services. Otolaryngology has seen a drastic surge in teleconsultation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the challenge lies in sustaining the services and making them affordable and acceptable in the remote corners of the country. The concept of “Mohalla clinics” offers a scope to integrate and adopt telemedicine in otolaryngology and expand its outreach effectively and with minimal resources. It is high time we start training ourselves and investing in telemedicine and develop the modality across our specialties.
