MeraHealth – Foundation stone


Dear Sir/Friend,
Being a computer science and application student and my enthusiasm to serve the sick people of India has motivated me to devote my constructive attitude for the applications of e-health.
I will be writing on this topic through out my blogging life along with other similar friends on net. I have a dream of reaching medical applications for the lakhs of needy people and to aid doctors whose many of the needs can be assisted using the computers. It needs doctors, NGOs, Govt. officials, developers, supporters and the common man. A small contribution will be helpful .The purpose of this blog is not to generate money for it but the interaction between the similar enthusiasts like me or more than me. I need your ideas, your time, your services for this project. This project on e-health will not generate any money from the common man and doctors. It will give their life an ease. Project is to be called as MERAHEALTH or MH in short (I have registered http://www.merahealth.com for it but files need the sponsorship to upload). The word “MERA” is a Hindi word which means “my”. So this project is meant for myhealth, the health of million Indians. The module-1 have been started at NIMHANS, Bangalore two years early as my MCA project work. I choose not to do my MCA project work in any company due to this reason. I like to innovate according to our need or better to say I like to apply the innovations of other great people.This module deals with psychiatry and mental health. Why I choose this topic primarily, I will write other day.From that time, we have two professors Dr.N.Pradhan,MD, Dr.C.R.Chandrashekhar ,MD from Bangalore and from Saltlake software park,Kolkata I have Amitabha Sinha,M.Tech. in this project. More are needed in our team. I wish Dr. Sujay Rao, MS ,Manipal Hospital Bangalore will join us very soon.
The plan for MH is clear to my eyes revolving around it. You will be happy to know that the director of NIMHANS appreciated the module-1 and told about the support he can give for it.
I will not make any monetary profit from this project, the money generated from it will be invested in it again.Some medical companies can sponsor it, I am searching for the suitable one. The companies can run ads on the site in return of their sponsorship.

At last to sum up get a glimpse of my dream:

Situation:
My neighbor is having a kidney problem.
a)What can I do now?
I go to the nearby doctor or enquire in some medical shop about kidney specialist. We can also go to the bigger town where a nephrologist may be available. Using computers what we can do is search Google for kidney topics and at last receive a lot of information of no immediate use for him.
b) What can be done with the MERAHEALTH project?
Logged on to http://www.merahealth.com and searched for the kidney doctor and can find the doctor's address and the contact no. along with the fees and the availability of appointment. May we find that a famous nephrologist comes in the same town tomorrow.Yes this kind of situation happens but we don't know about it most of the time. So we sent a request for an appointment with him instantly. Or we got booked a concession ticket for train instantly and set an appointment at CMC Vellore sitting in a colony of Saharanpur in UP.
The need of hour is make the dream true.

Yours truly,
Prem Piyush.
