Abstract: Healthcare globally is failing to meet its objectives of delivering appropriate medical attention to patients. We suggest that by adopting a networkcentric approach healthcare operations and delivery will be dramatically enhanced with the ultimate beneficiary being the patient. Underlying the networkcentric doctrine of healthcare is the use of IC2T. As discussed in the paper, all the essential network and telecommunication components already exist. We must now focus on how to combine them so that network centric healthcare can in fact become a reality.
