  • This can be good only for seasonal illness and for far remote rural areas that too for small diseases that requires little pathological tests.
    People in India take medical prescriptions seriously and don't take hasty decisions. Indians don't risk their money and health both.

    Also this will require consumers to be literate with both medical and technological knowledge otherwise social communication could lead to unnecessary confusion.

    Although this model suits for naturopathy, yoga like medicine practices in which people are self-learned and also has comparatively less side-effects.

    But I am sure that one day we Indians will be so literate that this actually would make sense, Till then try to socially connect rural - rural, rural - urban and urban - urban doctors,paths for cross-referencing. This has a social service aspect as well, In which a doctor in AIIMS or Medanta could actually help a doctor in some village and then that doctor could pass it on to common man.

    Hope for a Better World to Live in.........

    According to the Jupiter Research report, 17 percent of "online health connectors" said they used the Internet "to get emotional support" for a health condition.Mobile based social networking would help connect patients to each other through disease-specific online communities, virtual support groups, real-time Web chats, and other features whereby patients share experiences and advice, and even rate their doctors.

  • Conclusions
    • Online Healthcare is an emerging field and social networking can be used extensively in collaboration with online healthcare.
    • Location based social networking healthcare can be used to gather real time information of a chronic patient irrespective of his/her location.
    • There is a huge need-gap in preventive healthcare, healthcare information delivery. Existing sites in India like aapkadoctor.com are hardly functional. A huge consumer base awaits the advent of location based social networking product in India.
    • Healthcare is perceived as a sensitive and privacy oriented field, and is not completely explored by social media in India. Therefore Directi can maintain exclusivity in terms of launching a product for healthcare .
    • Collaborative tie ups with healthcare agencies and even health NGOs can ensure a great opportunity to ensure network enhancement for urban and semi urban areas.
