Though the budgeting for health has increased in recent times and we see a robust network of quality public and private health centres across the nation, the budgeting for e-Health technologies have not received the Indian health plannerâ€™s adequate attention. The heart of e-Health efforts should be an efficient mobile based short messaging network which is very much available at a common manâ€™s price. A back up network of call centres like Project M of Africa will not be difficult for a nation that provides call centre back â€“up and technologies to the world. Convergence E-Health Services under a Unified National Health Grid hold good prospects for a big overpopulated country like India, with a poor and inefficient health infrastructure.
