Abstract:

Cloud Computing, nowadays used for saving cost, space, computer hardware and software, can be  implemented on a newly  designed system with cloud computing approach is a solution forremote districts, villages in hilarious regions where mobile network exists. First it can be implemented on animals and then if successful can be implemented on human beings. It provides better solution for the patients admitted in a veterinary hospital first and then hospital or primary health center for humans. The developing countries are still fighting with less number of doctors in those areas and sometime in town or big cities are also searching for certain specialist medical practitioners opinion. The situation is already worst for poor and illiterate people in terms of finding a doctor in such area. So it is easily understandable for animals, it's horrible. Existing system in major parts are based on manual paper work and independent standalone applications in some districts & small towns' hospitals and primary health centers which results in waste of resources, high construction and maintenance costs and difficult to manage and maintain. The main objective of proposing cloud based solution is to reduce the cost (construction and maintenance), to reduce data loss risk, to gather all the hospitals on one platform to better access patients' medical information for easy management and maintenance. The proposed cloud computing solution is intended to be used by hospitals and primary health centers of third world  countries; however the solution is generic and can be used by hospitals of any country and the community based hospitals. This approach also saves a massive amount of paper works and be able to save trees to fulfill one step ahead to the greener world. In future the proposed system will have a huge impact on saving animal and human life and we will feel goodness by dedicating this system for humankind. Some people will laugh at using clouds for animals but we do strongly believe in the fact that all the creations are made by the godfather for all and each of them have equal rights to get facilities in this new era of cloud technologies.
