DIstributed Global Health Technology

The DIGHT (Distributed Information store for Global Healthcare Technology) project is addressing the problem of building a scalable and highly available information store for the Electronic Health Records (EHRs) of the over one billion citizens of India.

The project partners are SICS (CSL lab) and the Indian Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), where SICS is responsible for the distributed storage aspects of the project, while C-DAC will work towards evolving an EHR standard for India. The project will embrace both open-source technology and open standards to ensure that information is managed and secured in an accountable and transparent manner.
