Issues E-Health strategy can address



The eHealth strategy aims to address a number of issues currently being faced by people who provide care to patients and those who support them. The key issues can be summarised as follows:

• Improved ability to access information that is integrated and accurate
• Better support for clinicians and care providers from across the health system to interact more efficiently and effectively with each
• Support for clinical and managerial decision making
• Greater capability for managing patient flow through improved planning and scheduling
• Support for location-independent health service delivery.


Principles of Implementation:


The principles for the implementation of the eHealth Strategy are:


• Build on what exists today and re-use viable capabilities in place
• Establish solid functionality and information, and then build new capabilities
• Introduce new and extended capabilities in phases, and realise benefits incrementally
• Identify solutions that improve quality of care and patient outcomes, while easing the workload burden on care providers
• Implement simple and practical solutions that can be refined over time.


Well donno about others but portfolios that need to be workon according to me are:


Portfolio 1: Information Integration and Communication (
is focussed on providing integrated patient information to care providers )


Portfolio 2: Core Systems Implementation

Focused on selecting, developing and implementing core systems incorporates:
• Medications reporting
• Emergency information management
• Diagnostic imaging
• Community health, mental health and chronic disease management
• Patient management and coordination


Portfolio 3: Foundation Projects

Implements functionality and information management practices that provide a foundation for the eHealth program, including:
• Information management
• Unique patient identifier
• Unique provider identifier and service catalogue


Portfolio 4: Managing and Delivering the eHealth Program

The Initiative covers:
  • Business and clinical alignment
  • Business transition and sustaining the change
  • Benefits realisation
  • Program management office and architecture

Well the risks areas are however,


Inability to secure sufficient funding to invest in eHealth and associated change activities

• Inability to meet expectations – both internal and external (including community, external providers, industry /vendors, politicians)

• Capacity of Kayaguru Health to deliver a program of the complexity of the eHealth program

• Solutions designed (both technology and processes are not relevant to clinicians and do not add value to their roles / clinical practice

• Inability of the organisation to absorb change (magnitude / rate)

• Not delivering early enough or fast enough

• Perceptions of Information Division credibility and reputation.

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…
