I suggest a ‘E-HEALTH MODULE’ as the futuristic module for health.
This ‘E-HEALTH MODULE’ is based on networking modules centrally coordinated by the ‘e-health networking centres’. In this module, all the systems of medicine are connected through e-network yet have their parallel existence. It is in common interest that all the systems of medicine co-exist under one roof instead of being pitted against each other.
This future health module would be based on the ‘Solar System Model’ or the “Atomic Model’, wherein ‘planets’ or the ‘electrons/protons’ are centrally connected and controlled by ‘Sun’ or the ‘Nucleus’ respectively. In solar system, the planets have their individual path of revolution as well as independent axis of rotation, yet they all move around their central body which is the ‘Sun’. Similarly in an atom, the protons, neutrons and electrons have their independent energies but they still revolve around the ‘Nucleus’. In the same manner, the nature of all the system of medicine (Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy) should be like planets with their independent existence, their individual axis and path of rotation and revolution, thus acknowledging the fact that they are essentially inter-dependent for their individual existence, revolving round the central control of the ‘E-HEALTH NETWORK CENTRE’. A balancing act of offence and defence would be the USP of this ‘E-HEALTH MODULE’ which would be centrally controlled by ‘E- HEALTH NETWORK CENTRE’.
Functioning of E-Health Module:
The ‘E-Health Network Centre’ would be the centre of this networking module. This ‘E-Health Centre’ will have a network of doctors from their respective fields. The patients would approach the ‘E-Health Network Centre’ and get their problems registered with this E-Network. This E-Network will then consult the network of associated doctors from various fields for the disease/problem in question. Virtual conferences of doctors may replace the physically attended conferences for this purpose. This network technology of this E-Health Module would help the patients and doctors to connect from anywhere. After thorough discussion, the patient will be guided to the right track of treatment through this ‘E-Health Network’. With this module patients will have an option to choose his doctors and treatments with a transparent in approach.
