  • 1. “ICDCIT – 2013” e-Health Applications Prepared & Submitted by Deepak Kumar Mohapatra
  • 2. OVERVIEW• Introduction• NGN : Next Generation Networks• QoS : Quality of Service• Mapping• Tele-Consultation• e-Health Related services• m-Health• Disease Management Scopes• Benefits and Challenges• Conclusion and Future Scopes
  • 3. INTRODUCTION e-HEALTH is defined as: Application of the Internet and other related technologies in the healthcare industry to improve the o Access o Efficiency o Effectiveness o Quality of treatment o Business processes utilized by healthcare organizations, practitioners, patients and consumers with the help of next generation networks (NGN) to Improve the health status of patients.
  • 4. WHO defines e-Health as...e-Health is the cost effective and secure use ofinformation and communication technologies insupport of the health and health related fieldsincluding healthcare, health surveillance and healtheducation, knowledge and research.
  • 5. NGN NGN : Next Generation Networks With recent trends and technology advancement in the development of converged broadband next generation networks (NGNs) and advanced multimedia services, the potential has increased in delivering of various e-Health services to end users “anywhere, anytime”.
  • 6. QoS QoS : Quality of Service The wide variety of e-Health services impose different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements on underlying networks.
  • 7. QoS
  • 8. QoS Requirements for e-Health Services e-Health Service Classification Multimedia Conferencing a) Still and Streaming Medical Images b) Transmission of Patient Vital Signs c) Tele-Robotic System d) Research and Education
  • 9. e-Health Classification
  • 10. Mapping of e-Health servicesMapping in e-Health isa particular servicemay comprise multiplemedia types and trafficflows that may need tobe mapped todifferent areas wherethe service is required.
  • 11. Tele-Consultation Tele-Consult or e-consult or Tele-Medicine It involves real-time video conferencing and streaming of ECG signals between a patient and a doctor. The service enables a patient or doctor to initiate an e-consult session using an appropriate research prototype client service media application.
  • 12. Tele-medicine
  • 13. e-Health Related services• Index of available programs and services.• Calendar of events.• Patient satisfaction surveys.• Service provider directories.• Patient e-mail services.• Health news.
  • 14. m-Health• m-Health includes the use of mobile devices in collecting aggregate and patient level health data.• Providing healthcare information to practitioners, researchers, and the patients.• It ensures a great support to the e-Health programs.
  • 15. Disease management scopes Health risks assessment Patient support groups Online discussion forums Moderated chat with guest experts comprehensive patient education “Ask an expert” triage for patients seeking medical advice Electronic newsletter subscription
  • 16. Benefits of e-Health Improve communication among healthcare stakeholders. Facilitate better decision support. Reduce medical errors. Enhance reporting capabilities. Encourage disease prevention and wellness.
  • 17. e-Health challenges 6 main areas of e-Health challenges are...o Information (Inaccurate and Incomplete)o Human resources (Inadequate or Brain- drained)o Infrastructureo Quality and security of data.o Financial and legal issues.o Authenticity
  • 18. Conclusion and Future Scope Developed research and training in this field. Working of Govt. And Private sectors in a parallel manner. Prioritisation of the information flow with ICT. Public support. Advancement of technologies. Lead a long, healthy and a prosperous life.
