Image Processing: In India image processing is very important, for example, at present it is very difficult to distinguish between X-rays obtained for following diseases: Pneumonia, Tuberculosis, diffrent Cancer. This position could be modified and qualitatively improved through image processing with enhanced techniques available in information technology. This is relatively a new area but has wide applications in medical image processing. Drug Designing and Development: Drug Designing and Development along with various phases of clinical trials to culminate into drugs could be carried out. Support System for critical clinical decisions: Usage of IT would provide surgeons, physicians and nurses with specific recommendations for real-time diagnostic and treatment. It covers a wide variety of technologies which range from simple alerts and prescribing drug interaction warnings to full clinical pathways and protocols. Also, an electronic/digital medical reference Library / encyclopedia could be maintained for references. Electronic Database System of Health: It could be implemented as an electronic file cabinet for patient data from diversified sources (that eventually integrate text, images, voice, handwritten notes, scans etc.). They are generally viewed as part of an automated order-entry and patient-tracking system that provides real-time access to patient data, as well as a continuous longitudinal record of their care. Computerized Medication Environment: Information Technology can be used as an medication ordering and fulfillment system that includes lab orders, radiology studies, procedures, discharges, transfers, and referrals. Image archiving and communication system: Development of technology to capture and integrate diagnostic and radiological images from various devices (e.g., X-ray, MRI, Computed tomography scan), collecting data and disseminating to a medical record, a clinical data repository, or other points of healthcare. Use of Bar-coding: Bar-coding in a healthcare environment uses an optical scanner to electronically capture information encoded on a product. Patents could be provided with arm bracelets with barcodes that could hold the vital record of that patient for doctors, which could be retrieved / assessed by handheld scanners when needed. It can be used for matching proper and exact medication (for example, matching drugs to patients by using barcodes on both the medications as well as patients' arm bracelets). Other applications could also be pursued, such as medical devices, lab, and Radiology.

Hence, there is great opportunity to advance the healthcare delivery system both hospitals based and domiciliary adopting technologies like Telemedicine there by attending to calls at home and village level. Advanced multimedia and communication network have shown immense potential in distance education and mentoring in health.
