Making sense out of a Health Website!



From the well known like medindia and doctorndtv.com to the better but less known like goodhealthnyou.com & healthcaremagic....Everybody today is talking about selling Health on the net.How is your website better than mine..? My page rank is better, your Alexa rating is higher...

In Business, failure costs so much of money that nearly every satisfied company avoids risk of innovation. I may help you with facts but for creativity you will have to help yourself. Hold one finger first Are you and your website into Health products

or, Health content,

or, Medical Consultation.

Integral to every Web development project is the understanding of elements evolving within e-health. For most of the start up companies in India, business is an exciting time during which they are invigorated by the possibility of success and the fun of tackling new challenges.But where do they make mistakes:

1.Incorporation: While incorporating is an appropriate step for many businesses, it pays to wait until your business idea is well formed before taking the plunge.

2.Research: Arrange to speak to as many of your potential customers as possible. Questions to ask include: Would you buy my product or service? Where do you currently obtain this product or service? How much would you be willing to pay for it?

3.Infrastructure:A nice office and great computer equipment make many entrepreneurs feel as though their dream of entrepreneurism is coming true.Save here!

4.Designing: I have a flash template with animations and a wow look so what..if it requires the customer to download a plugin..He would rather cross the window..

5.Trust: Ever geard of emotional visitors..well if you are into internet that too into health..you should know them..They love to hear from you, Introduce your people, what all you do? where are you situated? Charity, Success and forth coming events..Are u coming on paperback, let them know?

6.Traffic Suppositories: To any health website to browse today, women visitors contribute to around 60% of the total value..wonder why? the website are made lame and easy.

7.What are the top 20 drugs browsed? ever wondered, any efforts for the same?Infertility, Diabetes, alternative medicine and Health insurance are the hottest in India.

What made WebMD and MayoClinic best websites?

Simple answer would be:

1. A one stop shop feeling.

2. Easy navigation, use and browsing.

3.Hon Code accredition.

4. Online support, Guides and newsletters.

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;

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…
