My name is Dr. Suman Bhusan Bhattacharyya and am a Health Informatics Expert and General Medical Practitioner

I bid you a very hearty and warm welcome to my web site. Thank you for visiting it.

I help in designing innovative electronic clinical records systems that are interoperable and conform to the National EHR Standards for India. By leveraging SNOMED CT, I can help interested parties to have an EHR/EMR system that is intuitive, easy-to-use and capable of generating rich data that can readily be analysed in real-time to produce information that can help deliver optimal levels of care. If interested, do feel free to get in touch.

I have done MBBS from India, and MBA in International Management (capstone thesis was on telemedicine) from Belgium. In July 2015 I was honoured with a Fellowship of College General Practioners. I also know computer programming and although I have several diplomas and certificates in the same, all of my health informatics knowledge is self-taught.

My principal interests are in the field of medical data science, EHR, remote patient care and artificially intelligent clinical decision support systems.

Currently I am Member, National EHR Standardisation Committee, MoH&FW, Member since 2010, Healthcare Informatics Standards, Bureau of Indian Standards since 2009 and Member, Standing Committee for IT, IMA Headquarters since 2016 and Member, Election Commission, IMA Haryana State for IMA Years 2017 - 2020. I also have the honour of serving as an expert on several Government of India Healthcare IT and Health Informatics-related committees. 

I have written a book entitled 'Introduction to SNOMED CT' that was published by Springer in 2016 and have since completed my second book entitled 'A DIY Guide to Telemedicine for Clinicians' that is expected to be published by them by the end of 2017. I also have several publications in national and international magazines on a wide-ranging topics related to health informatics (the links to these are in the menu to the left).

I have previously served as President of Indian Association for Medical Informatics (IAMI) for the 2010 - 2011 session, Honorary Secretary of Indian Medical Association (IMA) Faridabad Branch for 2010 - 2011, 2011 - 2012 and 2012 - 2013 sessions, Governing Council Member, IMACGP, IMA Haryana State for 2012 & 2013 sessions and Member, Healthcare IT Group, IMA Headquarters (2010 - 2012), Honorary State Secretary, IMA Haryana State Branch (2015), Chairman, Disciplinary Committee, IMA Haryana State (2016).

I also know R and have working knowledge of Octave and the Python language.


Currently I am focusing on application of machine learning techniques in healthcare in terms of predictive analytics and simulations, use of SNOMED-CT in Clinical Analytics, especially predictive analytics, Internet of Healthcare Things and Big Data Analytics in Healthcare.
