Health Care 4.0

Affordable and accessible Health Care for Every Indian


Health Care 4.0

In India, there is huge limitations in healthcare services due to limited number of hospitals, shortage of qualified healthcare professionals and services like qualified doctors, nurses, technicians and debilitating medical infrastructure. Adding to the problem is non-uniform and restricted accessibility to healthcare across the country and huge disparity between rural, semiurban and urban India as most of the basic and advanced healthcare facilities are concentrated in and around tier 1 and tier 2 cities.


Smart Cities

People centered Smart Cities


Smart Cities

In the last several years there has been explosive growth of information and communication technologies (ICTs) due to advancement of hardware and software designs. The use of ICT in cities in various forms for different city activities will lead to the increased effectiveness of city operations. The smart city is a concept and there is still not a clear and consistent definition of the concept among academia and practitioners. Moreover, these advances in researches for making achieving these smart cities, do not have a wide practical application.
