Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India to Drive e-Health Innovations - 2,69 Billion Rupees Sanctioned for Health Sector!
Date:8/4/2011

DUBAI, UAE, August 4, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --

Hospitals across India could be on the brink of finding a solution to closing the gap between the quality of healthcare between city dwellers and those residing in India's villages.

Telemedicine, an umbrella term for new technology and techniques that facilitates healthcare diagnosis and treatment remotely, is being hailed by the industry as an answer to ensuring that India's poorer classes have access to the best healthcare possible.

In a bid to modernise India's telemedicine industry and improve the standard of care for the country's rural inhabitants, some Indian hospitals are now looking to introduce Electronic Health Records (EHR).

These digital records facilitate information exchange between geographical locations, supporting medical professionals in rural areas. Doctors are provided with patient data, including past history, provided by Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and up-to-date medical knowledge and literature - helping doctors to make an accurate diagnosis.

With the growing use of India's private sector using EHR and EMR technology to differentiate itself, the Technology Development Board, Department of Science & Technology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India is driving the government's role and has sanctioned 2,69 billion rupees for e-health and mobile initiatives.

IQPC's Next Generation Health Informatics INDIA conference which is officially endorsed by the Technology Development Board, Department of Science & Technology, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India will take place 18-19 October in New Delhi.

At this event, India's technical advances in health informatics will be discussed in depth and bring together industry experts, including; H.K. Mittal, Secretary, Ministry of Science & Technology, Govt. of India; Neena Pahuja, CIO, Max Healthcare Institute, Jasmeet Singh Puri, Advisor Corporate Affairs, Fortis Healthcare; Baljit Singh Bedi, Advisor - Health Informatics, Centre for Development for Advanced Computing (CDAC), Ministry of Communication & IT, Government of India; Dr. Karanvir Singh, Head of Medical Informatics, Sir Ganga Ram Hospital.

"To address the significant disparities in affordability, quality and access to health-care services in the nation it is imperative we leverage and integrate the wealth in our technologically advanced IT sector. Conferences such as this are ideal platforms to propel the initiative."

Dr Shubnum Singh, VP Medical Affairs, Max Healthcare Institute
