Abstract

India with a population of nearly 1.3 billion has unimaginable challenges in planning for a health care system. While accessibility in geographical terms is challenging for a huge country, the rich and affluent can access state of the art services, while lower- and middle-income population are left to face cruel choices, as the state health infrastructure remains sparse and grossly under-funded. The evolution of new quantum computing and its capitulation with robotic or molecular technologies is creating faster diagnostic and treatment algorithms. With the availability of satellite communications for remote areas and advances in accurate sensing gadgets, the possibility of providing rapid healthcare via artificial intelligence is becoming closer to reality.
