Easing health education

There are a number of common things between the Health Department and us, like human machine interface tools for handicapped, RCTS, and in particular, telemedicine. We have also formed got a group that will help the physicians placed in the remote areas to communicate with our experts. Being a teaching institution, we also started using eLibrary for students, and eClass, where people sitting in smaller towns can communicate with large centres and even abroad for various dialogues or seminars. We are trying to get the database updated and it’s already under process. Also, we are trying to overcome whatever issues are there in communicating with the bureaucratic system with the help of this data and Cloud Computing. It will become easier to update logistics relating to equipment with RFID system, drug databases, etc. However, there is a long way to go in education system and there can be phenomenal changes with the help of virtual hospitals. Earlier, the medical students had to do the dissection on the body or on the patients, which at times, was not comfortable. However, with the help of virtual reality, the assimilation of 3D CT and MRI can be created to make them feel as if they are operating for real.
