  • The National Cancer Grid (NCG) is an initiative of the Department of Atomic Energy and Tata Memorial Centre.

  • Telemedicine and remote patient monitoring will help make care more accessible, especially in semi-urban and rural areas.
  • AI-assisted clinical decision support tools will help improve doctors’ ability to provide better care
  • Mobile patient engagement apps will help patients with medication management and better compliance with care guidelines.
