Abstract: This paper represents that how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is influencing the health services. Emergence of Internet has boosted the use of this technology and now this has become an imitable source of healthcare services. We have listed the technologies that are being used to cure the patient in various medical sectors and hospitals. Further, comparison between traditional methods of treatment and methods that include ICT, shows that it is beneficial to implement ICT to provide e-health services which helps developing countries to reduce cost of treatment. As obvious that installation cost is more but after implementation it becomes more facilitating solution. Conclusion can be made that if technology is easy to understand, learn and implement as well as solves various problems at a one stretch then no harm in its procurement even though installation cost is a bit high because after effects are more beneficial.
