  15. 15. Evolution Cycle Funding ► Biggest issue is of funding ► All major projects are either not-for-profit or ‘Trust run’ ► Government run projects have not gone „Beyond the Pilot phase‟ ( Actually , could not even sustain the pilot phase ! ) ► Time for the industry to come together and start doing projects that are financially viable ► Go to the government and showcase success stories for adoption 15© Rajendra Pratap Gupta . Email: office@rajendragupta.in eindia.eletsonline.com

  17. 17. Evolution Cycle Research ► All those into Telemedicine do not share the data transparently ► They do not ‘invest’ in research for ‘Outcomes’ related to Telemedicine , and this is one reason why we have to always quote USA/ European data ► Unless we invest in research , we will not be able to convince the medical fraternity to use telemedicine ► Time to come under one project „ Project – iHope – „Improving Healthcare Outcomes by practicing eHealth‟ – A joint initiative of MCIT , DMAI & TSI* . ► Legal & Regulatory issues needs to be sorted out to ensure provider / user adoption * Modalities being worked out 17© Rajendra Pratap Gupta .

Evolution Cycle Adoption ► We are still in the pilot phase ► Telemedicine to become an important component of Rural Health ► Telemedicine to be used for Chronic disease management ► EMRs to be adopted in clinical practice ► Tablets should be used for medical education and this is the best way to get doctors to use latest technology ► If 100 million consumers used health related applications on mobile phones, we could have reached the threshold of going ‘Mass scale’ on Telemedicine 19© Rajendra Pratap Gupta .

Are we really prepared for it ? ► In the 12th Five year plan, healthcare spending on chronic diseases may go up to Rs. 55000.00 crores. If we fail to come up with solutions , either 80 % of the money will get misused or, as usual, only 45 % of the funds would be used ! ► Rural Health will undergo drastic changes and mHealth could get a real boost 11 % of adult US Mobile phone users have mHealth applications to „Track‟ or „Manage‟ health ( MobiHealthNews.com) 21© Rajendra Pratap Gupta .
