About Us


The healthcare system in the United States and the world at large is currently undergoing extensive changes, in part because of such challenges faced by its delivery system as (1) The increased demand for healthcare due to an increased number of elderly and the changes in lifestyle leading to an increase in chronic diseases; (2) The demand for increased accessibility of care outside hospitals, moving health services into the patient’s own homes; (3) The need for increased efficiency, individualization and equity of quality-oriented health care with limited financial resources; (4) The difficulties of recruiting and retaining personnel in healthcare services in general and in home and elderly care in particular. Telehealth, the use of electronic information and telecommunication technologies to support long-distance clinical health care, patient and professional health-related education, public health and health administration, has the potential to address these issues. One subsection, telemedicine, the use of technology to provide and support healthcare when distance separates the clinical service and the patient, appears to be particularly attractive.

TeleHealth and Assisted Living Center, Inc.(TALC) which was established in 2013 as a non-profit corporation and operated exclusively for Health, Assisted Living, Educational and Charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, or the corresponding section of any future Federal tax code.   This was after our founder relocated to the USA  birthed it out of his doctoral thesis titled “IMPLEMENTING DIGITAL HEALTH IN LOW–AND MIDDLE–INCOME COUNTRIES (LMICs): AN ACTOR-NETWORK THEORY APPROACH”, a research that took me to study telemedicine and eHealth implementations in India and Ghana.
The purpose of TALC is to engage in the following business activities:
Provide the citizens of low income communities and the developing world the best available health care while providing their healthcare professionals the best available health information and education.
Engage the indigenes from the developing world to promote health care delivery to all those who need it using technology.
Conduct and disseminate research findings to advance the practice of telehealth and assisted living.
