HOW TO EARN REVENUE IN A HEALTH PORTAL?

Revenue-------Your focus should be on advertisements. Web users don't mind qualityPortals having a banner ad at the top of the page, and Google Ads havethe ability to provide ads relevant to page content. Getting doctorsor hospitals to pay for inclusion in a your directory only becomesviable when they sense they *need* to be listed. Consider how longYahoo took before they charged for inclusion as the correct model. Which is the better option, from your visitors’ point of view? 1. A complete directory, supported by ads2. A patchy directory, supported by submission fees Revenue by section------------------In general, I do not think any gain can be made from dividing yoursite into sections for revenue purposes. Although there may be theoccasional section of your site worthy of special attention, it is notcommon for large sites to complicate their advertising in this way. If an individual page receives a lot of visitors, then a staticadvertisement that ties in well with the topic of the page can workwell. Typically this would be a link to a book or product thatdirectly fills the needs of the likely visitor to the page. This could also apply to sections like your drug search. One presumesthat anyone using the drug search is either looking to purchase thecorrect drugs for their situation, or have some concern about whetherthe drugs they have been prescribed are correct. For this category,prominent ads for an online pharmacy would do well, as would books onthe topic, like an "A-Z of Drugs". Revenue streams that are available to sites such as those in the USAmight not be available to Indian sites, primarily because Indianretail e-commerce is in its relative infancy. Being an American sitethat links directly to books at Amazon.com is quite easy.GoBookShopping would be a good Indian alliance for your site if itprovided a means of linking to books individually.http://www.gobookshopping.com/alliances.asp You are a Portal----------------Health is a never-ending topic, and trying to be everything foreveryone is impossible. It does, however, seem to be human nature totry. Many amateur websites include a visitor book a long time beforethey have any visitors. As the web-surfing audience matures with experience, they take heed oflittle indicators that continuing to browse a site could be a waste oftheir precious time. As noted above, having a forum with noparticipants is one example. So too are any pages that are "underconstruction", and any link directories or databases that lackcontent. Therefore your main priority is to fulfill the expectationsof your visitor. You can do this by focusing on one aspect and makingit as close to perfect as is possible. Your site is a portal. Your focus should be on being a portal - acombination of health information, links to specialist resources, anda directory of Indian resources, products and facilities.

Healthcare On Mobiles: Featured post- mHealth fighting malnutrition
Malnutrition is a byword in the forested hills of the Melghat region inhabited mostly by Korku Adivasis. Every year 400-500 children between the ages of 0 and 6 die in the region, comprising Chikhaldhara and Dharni taluks, according to official figures from 2005.


The Problem: Thousands of kids die every year in the tribal area of Melghat (Maharashtra, India) due to lack of medical attention and nutritional support. Increased incidence and rapid spread of infectious diseases such as pneumonia, typhoid, and dysentery are primary cause of high child mortality. Situation worsens during monsoon when the food supplies are low and the communicable diseases are at their peak.

Melghat is also a place known for high infant mortality rate. Some reasons for the health crisis in Melghat include lack of infrastructure, under-equipped and under-staffed public health and ICDS centres, the tradition of early marriages and early mothe…

The Formula of Driver and Demand- Indian Startups story

The healthcare industry is currently experiencing change at an unprecedented rate. Change is not only occurring in the technology used in diagnostics and care delivery, but this change is so fundamental that it could, and likely will, fundamentally alter the business model of the industry.
Today we have fitness bands, healthcare apps, appointment schedulers, health chats and several such means to access healthcare but one thing that all of this does not necessarily correlate with high quality of care or better outcomes. We need to understand that “Not even a Ferrari will get us to our destination without a driver.”Formula of Driver:
Driver = (Need + Incentive) where;
Incentive = (Value + Reward) Need = (Gap + Demand)
To define the best drivers, we need to first address the need. Need might not make economic or business sense but it is the best opportunity to leave an impact. No one remembers how much business a “Mughal-e-Azam” or “Usual suspects” did but everyone remembers that these were…

Why we never noticed ZIKA?- Indian Research and Development

“Zika had 'disappeared' because it wasn’t worth worrying about and people weren’t paying attention.”

Zika virus was first identified in 1947 in a sentinel monkey that was being used to monitor for the presence of yellow fever virus in the Zika Forest of Uganda. At this time cell lines were not available for studying viruses, so serum from the febrile monkey was inoculated intra-cerebrally into mice. All the mice became sick, and the virus isolated from their brains was called Zika virus. The same virus was subsequently isolated from Aedes africanus mosquitoes in the Zika forest.

In 1950, when some serological studies were being done, it was found that we humans developed antibodies against this virus. Further studies revealed evidence of infection in other African countries, including Uganda, Tanzania, Egypt, Central African Republic, Sierra Leone, and Gabon, as well as Asia (India, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia). The virus circulating in Brazil is an Asi…
