Dr. Rajesh Gokhale spoke on “The Information Quagmire to Digital Health” and informed the audience that rural healthcare still poses enormous challenges with over 66% of the rural population not having access to critical healthcare while 31% still having to walk more than 30 kms. to reach health services. Preventive and curable diseases still dominate the morbidity pattern which include diseases like typhoid, measles and diarrhea. He also shared that the Government has set up telemedicine centres backed by data centres in 170 rural locations in association with HP where they get live information about the patients. These centres are in the form of shipping containers.

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.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CONFERENCE

  • 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.

In order for the Indian industry to compete successfully and excel in the competitive global environment, it is an imperative for managers and engineers to effectively initiate and manage the technology of the future. Broad application of such technologies across India will be a great leveler for closing the rural and urban technology divide. Key areas of development in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry are likely to be driven by smart city, Internet of Things (IOT), and ubiquitous computing applications.

This will entail acquisition, processing / analysis, communication, and dissemination of large amounts of heterogeneous data. Major areas of coverage and challenges are in managing the multimedia data and traffic; integrating distributed heterogeneous and dynamic databases; understanding scientific, social, legal, and human behavior aspects of smart city technologies; designing and realizing ubiquitous and pervasive networking infrastructure, handling trust-worthy embedded systems, and formulating technology/human friendly policies.

This MDP will focus on need for developing comprehensive interdisciplinary thematic expertize in our engineers and managers for business success in the industry of the future. The workforce needs to be imparted with multi-disciplinary and broad-based knowledge not only in the technology issues but also in societal and legal challenges associated with the business environment of the future. 

The workforce will be required to successfully manage transformative and disruptive technologies, collaboration building, Entrepreneurship, and succeeding in an environment of multidisciplinary global and diverse teams. The attributes of influencers and change agents will be covered as India and the rest of the world marches relentlessly towards the smart technologies of the future.

We take this opportunity to invite you and your concerned colleagues to this interaction. To defray the event costs, a nominal delegate fee of Rs. 750/- (inclusive of all taxes) is being charged. 3 or more delegates from the same organization will be entitled to a 10% discount.
