Dear Readers,

The importance of Information Technology is indisputable and industries the world over have come to realize the potential of the World Wide Web. The Life Sciences industry, in particular, stands to benefit immensely. In an economy that’s still recuperating from the bolt of recession, people the world over are experiencing the burden of rising healthcare costs.

In our latest edition of Hospital and Healthcare Management, we

bring to you insights from renowned experts on the latest trend that has one and all in anticipation - ‘mHealth’.

Advancements in Oncology, though welcome, have raised concerns

about the detrimental effects of the same. As GE Healthcare takes a closer look at the concept of ‘Dose Reduction’, our special feature includes an interview with Dr Gustav von Schulthess, Professor, Chairman and Director, Department of Medical Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at the University Hospital Zurich, Switzerland, one of the first commercial users of a PET/CT scan system developed by GE Healthcare.

Current statistics are far from reassuring, with a considerable section

of the population falling prey to chronic diseases. The World Health Summit sheds light on the need for early diagnosis and prevention of diseases.

The concept of sustainability takes form to make its much awaited foray into Germany. Siemens AG explores ‘The Ethianum’.

The Internet facilitates access to relevant health information and

services, bringing together providers and patients in a cost-effective set- up. CapGemini lends its inputs on the latest software tool – Health 2.0 and Accenture explores the ‘mHealth’ model.

Home to a billion people, India has its fair share of challenges in the

realm of Healthcare; data storage being the most pressing issue to be dealt with. Frost & Sullivan puts forth its views.

Accessible and effective healthcare remains top priority at the moment.

And, with the increasing use of the Internet and the adoption of ‘eHealth & mHealth’ we look forward to a healthcare reform.

Until we meet again!
