Information and Communications Technology (ICT) can be the force-multiplier to overcome the above challenges and enable public healthcare to be scaled up at an affordable cost. ICT-enabled solutions help in improving telemedicine and citizen lifecycle healthcare with electronic patient records, integrated preventive disease surveillance, remote consultations to reduce outpatient visits and increased efficiency of the drug supply chain.
TCS’ ICT-enabled public healthcare solutions and the unique experience of automating large hospitals, integrating state-level medical facilities, enabling health insurance provisioning for the disadvantaged citizens, etc. make it a pre-eminent public healthcare solution provider.
An aging population in the developed economies is straining the governments’ healthcare budget and altering the public healthcare delivery paradigm with its unique requirements. In the developing economies, there is a huge gap between the demand and supply of public healthcare.
The critical challenges include the following:
- Optimizing the medical infrastructure
- Reducing the cost of healthcare delivery
- Shortening the lead times for capacity development
- Attracting investments to create medical facilities
- Building public awareness for preventive healthcare
- Coping with the lack of disease surveillance systems
