Healthcare @ Mobility in India
While the Government is building more and more hospitals, the gap between the patient-doctor ratio is huge. For the next 20 years, the infrastructure will not be able to match the growing population of India. Hence, the next step is to create a model where one hospital supplies its service to 10 -15 nearby villages through the use of technology. Technology facilitates remote patient monitoring, enables safe data collection and dissemination, while reducing service costs. To give a data point, every citizen in rural area has to travel a distance of 20 kilometers to avail healthcare facility. The need is to decrease the travel time, decrease the cost and make it more affordable and convenient. For this, the government started disseminating information and awareness through mobile phones. It also started educating rural citizens about the various free campaigns being conducted in their district. Also, today the mobile phones worth only Rs 5,000-6,000 have smartphone capabilities. One can run apps that tell us if a person has got flu or not. This has empowered the rural population too.

Healthcare Insurance in India @mHealth
Inspite of low penetration of Health Insurance in India, inclination towards Prevention and wellness products and services is on the rise. Penetration of private healthcare insurance policies is less than 0.5% in India (Health insurance penetration in India is as low as 5%). If you live in the U.S, you would have come across this tagline many a times "Health Insurance companies investing in Wellness products to reduce claims and cut consumer costs". In India, it is unheard of!!!

Help malnutrition in India @mHealth
Malnutrition is a byword in the forested hills of the Melghat region inhabited mostly by Korku Adivasis. Every year 400-500 children between the ages of 0 and 6 die in the region, comprising Chikhaldhara and Dharni taluks, according to official figures from 2005.

The Problem: Thousands of kids die every year in the tribal area of Melghat (Maharashtra, India) due to lack of medical attention and nutritional support. Increased incidence and rapid spread of infectious diseases such as pneumonia, typhoid, and dysentery are primary cause of high child mortality. Situation worsens during monsoon when the food supplies are low and the communicable diseases are at their peak.

"Those were the days when we were provided with Russian computers. These computers used to heat up after every 4-5 hours and then we had to shut them down and let them cool off before we can use them again", said Mr F. C Kohli when I met him recently at INTERCOP

Big Data, Patient Portals and Healthcare
The big data revolution is here, on an aggressive growth path, and the patient might truly be the biggest beneficiary of next wave. But hey! Where is that data?

1. More than 65% of data across the globe stay non-digitized.

2. 68% of digitized data isn't integrated with channels or inter-operable systems.

3. 99% problem in delivering effective healthcare is in bad data, old data and No data.

The health care system is filled with dreamers, from compassionate nurses and doctors to technology experts, researchers in the lab to people like us- mHealth experts.

 many healthcare enterprises which are spread over 10-20 establishments in India are now using VPNs as the enabling technology which allows doctors to use standard public Internet ISPs and high-speed lines to access closed private networks. A simple use case for this is to access virtual patient health records and there are other wireless technologies designed specifically for use in the provision of healthcare, like:
