Welcome to OncoNET
Sponsored By: Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (Govt. of India)


To establish knowledge enabled network between 27 Regional Cancer Centres (RCCs) and 108 peripheral cancer centres(PCCs) across India. This collaborative network between Healthcare Service Providers, Healthcare Professionals and common citizens is expected to facilitate early detection of cancer patients across the country through peripheral centres, delivery of telemedicine services to them, creation of cancer patients' register , Electronic Health Records (EHR), Continued Medical Education (CME) programmes, R & D works etc..


The ‘OncoNET’ project is a proven technology based Cancer care delivery program sponsored by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoH&FW), Government of India (GOI). The project is spearheaded by MoH&FW in association with National Informatics Centre (NIC), Department of Information Technology, Government of India and aims at bringing Cancer Care to towns and villages in India where such services are lacking. This is achieved by connecting Regional Cancer Centres, equipped with best cancer treatment facilities and dedicated doctors and healthcare professionals, with various Government Hospitals such as District hospitals, Taluk hospitals, etc. which are designated as peripheral cancer treatment delivery points (PCCs) using advanced Information & Communication Technologies (ICTs). Such designated PCCs shall act as “virtual” extension of the RCCs using telemedicine tools and Information and Communication Technologies. Thus, cancer patients in places far away from the RCCs shall avail, by visiting the nearest OncoNET centre manned by a doctor and a assistant at PCC, consultation services with specialists of the RCC using OncoNET telemedicine software. It is envisages that this will save patients time, effort and money that otherwise they need to incur in traveling long distances to reach RCCs to avail consultation, early detection, management and treatment follow-up , as well as various other uncertainty aspects..
