The use of ICT for health (e-health) has the potential to transform healthcare by efficiently connecting people and improving information sharing. Developing countries like India have potential to adopt e – health care in coming years.

The Indian companies are realigning their IT strategies, managing operational costs, automating processes, and implementing new systems to improve efficiency leading to a technology rich lifestyle for the citizens of the country. In this era of ICT revolution IoT is a thing to be highlighted. IoT is disrupting both the industrial sectors and the consumer sectors by increasing use of sensors, cloud, robotics, centralized tracking, quality inspection etc. and thereby forming an ecosystem of smart manufacturing. Moreover this also ensures low cost, enhanced revenue, enhanced safety, security and quality.
