1 1 ICT for Cancer Diagnosis, Treatment and Management Sudhamony S Additional Director / Head, Medical Informatics Section, Centre for Development for Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Thiruvananthapuram, INDIA. APAN-Healthcare-2009

2 22 2 A Scientific research organization of Ministry of Communication and Information Technology, Government of India Vision: To emerge as the premier R&D Institution for the design, development and deployment of world class electronic and IT solutions for economic and human advancement Ten centres across India C-DAC, Thiruvananthapuram is in the state of Kerala C-DAC APAN-Healthcare /4/2009C-DAC Medical Informatics Centre for Development of Advanced Computing

3 33 3 About ONCONET The first successful Tele-Oncology Network in India which provides telemedicine services in early detection, patient follow up and pain relief for cancer patients from rural areas. APAN-Healthcare /4/2009C-DAC Medical Informatics

4 44 4 The Need Statistics from India : 1 million new cancer cases per annum 3 million cancer patients Low socio-economic status and low literacy rates in rural areas Lack of infrastructure and expertise at Public Health Centers in rural areas for early detection of Cancer Long and relatively expensive travel to reach Cancer Care facility 30% of cancers can be prevented; 40% can be cured APAN-Healthcare /4/2009C-DAC Medical Informatics

5 55 5 A research project funded by Govt. of India Designed, developed, implemented and supported by C-DAC, Thiruvananthapuram Implemented at Regional Cancer Centre Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India and its five peripheral clinics across the state ONCONET APAN-Healthcare /4/2009C-DAC Medical Informatics

6 66 6 Regional Cancer Centre Trivandrum (RCC) RCC is the only cancer hospital in the Govt. sector catering to the population of the state of Kerala and neighboring states. Approx. 12,000 new cases are registered every year and the annual follow-up visits reach 150,000 every year APAN-Healthcare /4/2009C-DAC Medical Informatics
