The number of mobile and Internet users in India have also been witnessing an increasing trend, hence new business models emerging in this space are expected to gain acceptance.
According to an industry veteran, “the scope of EHR in India has only been restricted to metro and tier 1 cities, however, with continuous government support and state governments emphasizing on modernization and automation of public hospitals, the demand for EHR software, which will further ensure efficiency and quality patient care, is expected to rise in rural areas as well..”
“Cloud computing and mobile technology is essential to take healthcare to a next level of growth in the country. Such kind of solutions will also help to tackle issues such as high costs, reach, complex patient records, infrastructure and other aspects that the sector countenances. However, in spite of the efforts, since majority of the population in the country resides in the rural areas where still outdated healthcare systems are prevailing, the challenge to extend such kind of services to the rural areas will still be there even after considerable amount of improvement in healthcare facilities with the help of IT in the metropolitan cities will be accomplished.”, according to the Research Analyst, Ken Research.
