between two sessions. Every delegate was given a kit, with a
brief conference schedule, and note books for making notes.
The topics covered ranged from Hospital Information System to
Virtual Reality. Each delegate was given 15 minutes for
presentation and 5 minutes of question time was given Per
delegate. In this way a effective interaction was enabled. The
main highlight of the conference was a Remote Video conference

It was a true medical industry and medical professional
partnership , with displays from Aethra, Prognosys, Sun Micro

Medical computer society of India will strive to organize such

computing with the practitioners of technology. This will also
be an opportunity for beginners and professionals to seek a
platform on which they can share their ideas and make use of
newer ones in their practice of telemedicine and Medical
