Disaster or emergency can create unusual circumstances. And usually they are extremely hard to stop. However, an intelligent approach or strategy can limit the damage or causalities and can help in the restoration of the victims. The technology platform is promising for disaster management. But due to continuous innovation and shift in technology, one single platform for disaster still lacks to be settled that promise less depravity. Telemedicine can blend both technology and medical assistance that can aid in analysis, scalability and potential of a particular plan execution as well as in doing priority protocol practice based on victim's conditions, indicators and diagnosis. Distance from approaching a victim and waiting time can be lessened by a fight-or-flight strategy which is active and rebound since it demands coordination and communication between various sectors for compliance and rebuilding with an intelligent strategy. Telemedicine describes the use of medical information exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications to improve patients' health status and care. Its applications in disaster situation likewise earthquake, war etc., required efficient, reliable communication technology such as GPRS, LTE etc. However, transmission losses or delay occur during transmission. Using Friis transmission condition transmission loses can be minimized for efficient communication. This paper proposed a model where telemedicine technology could be helpful especially in the areas the shortage of medical specialist or doctors.
