Recent advances in Internet enabled mobile devices have paved the way for remote patient monitoring applications. The aim of this paper is to evaluate the scope and nature of mobile technologies in the healthcare sector on one of the largest countries by population and the fastest growing economy, India. The motivation for the research came from an analysis of the potential benefits Mobile Information Technology could have on large, but often disparate and geographically remote population. Increasing demand for quality services for from a limited resource needs to be matched through massively improved efficiencies in delivery of timely diagnoses and effective treatment. The work presented highlights the possibilities to provide such efficiency gains due, in part, to the awareness of modern ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) systems by young medical practitioners and the ever expanding Mobile Infrastructure in India.
