MITSOT to organize a Conference focusing on Digital Healthcare


Around the world governments have realized that the economic growth of a country cannot be achieved without healthier citizens and a disease-free society. India’s phenomenal economic growth in the last decade has improved overall health standards in the country. Despite making significant improvements in health outcomes such as lowering of infant mortality rate (IMR) and maternal mortality rates (MMR), and polio eradication, the country continues to suffer from inequities and inefficiencies.

As the world pivots closer to the ‘virtualization of care’, amazing breakthroughs occur erasing the healthcare boundaries and enabling care through mobile, digital, and wireless technologies.Digital health technologies have the potential to transform the way healthcare is delivered and help governments analyze Big Data to identify unmet needs and measure outcomes in a precise manner. mHealth applications can be a game changer for the Indian healthcare sector.

This Conference aims to focus on some of the aforementioned technologies and advances in the field of healthcare such as Digital Health, mHealth & eHealth, Health IT, Telehealth & connected health, EHR/EMR, Sensors & Wearables, Big Data & Analytics etc. This will be achieved by expert panel discussions, presentations as well as Startup Demos.


  • Participation of leading doctors as well as senior professionals from Pharma, Healthcare, IT & Telecom sectors including Hospital Administrators & Mobile App Developers.
  • Live product demonstrations at the Conference venue in the field of sensors, wearable, health and wellness apps, EHR/MHR, mHealth & eHealth initiatives etc.
  • Participation of final year students from MIT Group of Institutions as well as other concerned engineering, science, computer applications, telecom, medical, pharmacy, pathology and biomedical colleges from in & around Pune
  • Competitions such as Idea Competition, Poster Competition, mHealth App Development Competition etc. for students.
