The Department of BioMedical Engineering, SRM University, Chennai, has organized a series of ‘BIOYANTRA’ a National Level Technical Event in the yester years. In this year, it is organized with the theme: “National Symposium on Medical Devices” in association with Philips Healthcare India Ltd & Consortium of Biomedical Engineers. This Symposium emphasizes on the interaction of Medical Industry professional with the young biomedical engineering students. Often it is a big problem for employment in the medical industry for fresher due to the lack of knowledge about the modern medical devices in the market and its technology. As we know that health related problems are increasing day by day. This increases the demand of health care services. In order to reduce the healthcare related problems, first we have to identify the diseases in its early stage and give the treatment for curing the disease. For that, innovation is required in the biomedical field, that is, low cost medical equipment which is affordable for the common man should be the main goal and mantra of a biomedical engineer. To bring this dream into reality, both doctors and medical industry should interact with biomedical engineering students to share their experiences, problems and knowledge in order to create a better world by giving better healthcare services for the patients. Hence, this event is an attempt to create new innovative product in future by sharing the past and present experience of medical industry professionals with the young biomedical engineers.
The workshop aims to discuss the various ways and means by which information and communication technology can be applied in health care sector so that selective diagnosis, emergency and long-term clinical care can be provided to people. It can also help to produce new clinical decision support systems which can aid the physician. This workshop will explore the possibility of reducing the cost & complexity involved in healthcare practice thereby benefiting healthcare professionals and ultimately aims to provide quality healthcare to people at a lesser cost. Further this workshop will highlight the need for continued support for the advancement of e-health leading to health Information System, Telemedicine/TeleHealth and its applications which have greater relevance to rural people in India.
