Come January “ the start up season of hope, promise and expectations, when we find everything old transforming into new. Around this time, we are keen to draw up resolutions, improve performances and chart out goals for greater achievement. Wake up calls are ringing in all verticals of healthcare too. New guidelines are emerging and science is scaling greater heights at a pace that overshadows the past. A lot of things emerge by surprise or just chance discovery (the success in stem cell transplants) that may be taken as a consolation but the real hard work sustains the process of miracle. Gene editing for instance, may be the dream driver for scientists working on the genetic technology.
The current issue of eHEALTH marks the ninth annual issue and we continue to chart the wheels of ICT in healthcare. We take a look at the Indian Health Summit that aims at bringing greater transparency and integrated health system envisioned for the next decade.
Besides the usual array of articles, we focus on few of the events that will impact the Indian health care scenario. USICON 2014 is slated to play a crucial role in shaping the public health perspective in various verticals associated with urology, namely – breakthroughs and technological highlights, Organ donation, Oncology and Mens health. The conference will have scientific programs and extensive training sessions, giving attendees a chance to sign up and master new skills.
The other event, IRIA 2014 showcases the upcoming challenges and forthcoming solutions in radiology. Radiation dose, safety issues, emerging technological marvels like high resolution ultrasound and host of data driven decisions in radiology leading to better image interpretation opens up a health care vertical that everyone is looking upto. Today patients are agog with questions being addressed to physicians who look further to the radiologists for leadership. The upcoming conference aspires to fulfil this vision and we provide a peek into the events along with industry and expert insights.
Other events include a relook at lymphoma at RGCON 2014. Titled Lymphoma, Biology to Therapy is an effort to address the grey areas of malignant neoplasms of the lymphoid tissue.
Enjoy the issue and accept our best wishes for a fast forward 2014
