The use of Information Communication Technology tools and methods in the healthcare sector is one of the most rapidly evolving areas today. India is a vast country consisting of 28 states and seven union territories. Health is the primary responsibility of each state and there is paucity of infrastructure and dearth of doctors in rural areas. The paper discusses the challenges and opportunities for the successful deployment of health services. Later we provide analysis that providing services through mobile to the elder population is the one of the most effective way.
