Vodafone Developer Program’s 'Innovations through Collaboration' on healthcare – a YourStory meetup


Disruptive technologies – mobile, cloud and big data are revolutionizing healthcare. From quality patient care anytime, anywhere, to vital patient information for doctors, from remote diagnostics and monitoring to easy-to-use telemedicine kits, mobile devices and video-conferencing technology is shaping the future of healthcare. While it is making it more convenient for the well off, massive efforts are underway to make healthcare accessible and affordable to the bottom of the pyramid. Today, India`s healthcare expenditure accounts to 4.1% of the GDP which is likely to grow to 6% in the coming years.
