With modern technologies having an immense potential to provide an enriching experience to consumers, the Indian healthcare sector has a vast scope to leverage it and evolve as an easily accessible, affordable and more effective system.
The digital technology and innovative practices have not only bridged existing gaps on various fronts, but they have been instrumental in fostering healthcare delivery system in a holistic way.
Technologies like EHR or EMR (Electronic Health Record or Electronic Medical Record), and telemedicine have evoked a big ray of hope for the people at large for a more satisfactory experience and access of medical facilities even while being in difficult terrains.
eHealth’s latest issue brings to the fore how a right mixture of technology, innovation and personal human touch is today delivering an improvised version of healthcare.
Our cover story titled ‘Home Healthcare — A Big Hope for Real Care’ explores various facets of private care where patients’ comfort level in homely environment is the first preference.
It highlights how home healthcare by professionally trained caregivers is less expensive, more convenient, and just as effective as the care given in a hospital or skilled nursing facility.
The magazine also carries a special feature on EHR, which is proving to be an effective tool to bolster patient care.
We are also featuring interviews of Neeraj Lal, Cluster Head & Vice President, Rainbow Children’s Hospital; Dr Hari K Prasad, President, Hospital Division, Apollo Group; Dr Aloke Mullick, Group CEO, Omni Hospitals; and Col Hemraj Singh Parmar, Group CEO, BR Life, highlighting their organisations’ contribution to boost healthcare delivery system.
The issue also carries articles by Vivek Tiwari, Founder and CEO, Medikabazaar and Dr Swagat Dash, Senior Consultant and HoD – Nuclear Medicine, Sarvodaya Hospital & Research Centre, Faridabad, providing industry insight.
The magazine also carries a conference report of Urban Healthcare Summit, Mumbai, comprising outcomes in terms of experts’ inputs to enhance care.
With such a bouquet of special features, articles, and interviews, I hope the latest issue of the magazine will evoke an invaluable feedback of our esteemed readers.
