The rapidly burgeoning health care industry is moving ahead with the development of both the pharmaceutical and software industry in our country. Till date, the improvement in the healthcare sector is approximately 12% and is anticipated to grow by 13% year on year. The health informatics, a novel academic discipline bridging medicine and information sciences, has already made its presence felt in the country.

To reduce this gap and to meet the needs of the Healthcare professionals and Paramedical personnel, Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences has designed and delivered Online Health Informatics Certification (OHIC).
