Thrust Areas

Health Informatics

Health informatics is a multidisciplinary field that integrates healthcare, information technology, and data science to manage and analyze health-related information. It encompasses the use of technology to store, retrieve, and transmit healthcare data for better decision-making, research, and patient care. Health informatics involves electronic health records (EHRs), health information exchange (HIE), telemedicine, clinical decision support systems (CDSS), and healthcare analytics. By leveraging advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence and machine learning, health informatics aims to improve efficiency, quality, and outcomes in healthcare delivery while ensuring patient privacy and security.

Next Generation Networks

Next Generation Networks (NGN) represent the evolutionary leap in communication infrastructure, integrating voice, data, and multimedia services over IP-based networks. They supersede traditional telecommunication systems, offering faster speeds, heightened reliability, lower latency, and greater flexibility. NGNs leverage packet-switching technology, allowing for efficient data transmission and facilitating the convergence of various services onto a single platform. Key components include IP telephony, broadband access, Quality of Service (QoS) mechanisms, and advanced network management systems. NGNs support emerging technologies such as 5G, Internet of Things (IoT), and cloud computing, enabling seamless connectivity and innovative applications. With NGNs, users experience enhanced communication capabilities, expanded service offerings, and improved efficiency in both personal and business contexts.
