It gives me immense pleasure to conduct First International Conference on E-Health And Telehealth (ICEHAT) 2018 as Organizing Secretary. In a country like Nepal where terrain is difficult and medical facility is not available at all places Telehealth can be one of the major means to reach the people in the need of medical support. All credits to DISHARC for taking a step forward and reaching the unreached and unattended people in the rural areas in the mountains and Terai region. The conference is going to be a land mark event because firstly, this is the first international conference of its kind and secondly, it is going to bring a lot of new and innovative ideas which is ultimately going to benefit the patients in need and thirdly this conference will give opportunity to the delegates to interact with world renowned experts of this field. This blend of medical skill and Information Technology will go a long way in the field of patient care. I am looking forward for the grand success of this important event.
