We need your opinion now - Respond to the Data Democracy Survey by @drvikram



Can patients manage their own healthcare records?

Healthcare records are a subject for an engaging discussion across the world. In India, we are just seeing the beginning of this debate. On one hand, many corporate hospitals have taken concrete measures to collect, maintain and drive insights from patient health records. While on the other hand valuable data is either not stored properly or is lying locked up in paper forms. Insights that could have saved lives are never collected.

In this context, we at Healthcare India are working on our next report on data democracy in healthcare. We have created a short survey which will help us capture the sentiments of our readers on this topic. We are also conducting interviews with healthcare leaders to get their views on the same.

The survey would take less than five minutes and will help us drive insights on this topic. Please click here to take the survey.

The responses are anonymous and we will rely on Survey Monkey technology to keep it secure.

We plan to release the report by the end of the year. Looking forward to seeing you all participate in the same.

#AI in Healthcare by @deveshrajadhyax



There are some subjects that invoke sharp and contrasting emotions in the society. In present day India, the GST tops the list of such things that are considered boon by some and curse by others. New technology usually does this to people. The steam engine, the telephone and the computer all have been greeted both as the savior and the nemesis of the mankind.

Philips Digital Healthcare Conclave 2017 #ConnectedCare In Focus by Sagay Mary, @hisagay



What if expensive, specialized patient monitoring systems in ICUs could be replaced with discreet sensors that transmitted all the vital health data directly to the doctors’ smartphones? What if the data could be analysed to deliver intelligible insights as well? Not only would it ensure better quality of care, it would also help bring down equipment and overhead costs for the hospital by eliminating expensive equipment and by even allowing patients to be cared for at home. The good news is that, this is not a hypothetical scenario but a real possibility as technology makes connected healthcare a reality.

In my discussions with the delegates, I realized that the foundation of medical education in India can be improved drastically. One just needs to look around medical colleges in India to understand the state of the dissection halls there.
