2018 Internet Trends Rerport by Mary Meeker @KPCB


Review the Mary Meeker 2018 Internet Report to understand the most important technology statistics and trends. Legendary Venture Capitalist has released the 2018 Internet Report covering insights about mobile, commerce, competition between Tech Giants, Freelance workers, Job Trends, Healthcare spend, and many other aspects in the entire 294 page report.

Context via KPCB 2018 Internet Trends Report:


“We use data to tell stories of business-related trends we focus on. We hope others take the ideas, build on them & make them better.  

At 3.6B, the number of Internet users has surpassed half the world’s population. When markets reach mainstream, new growth gets harder to find – evinced by 0% new smartphone unit shipment growth in 2017. 

Internet usage growth is solid while many believe it’s higher than it should be. Reality is the dynamics of global innovation & competition are driving product improvements, which, in turn, are driving usage & monetization. Many usability improvements are based on data – collected during the taps / clicks / movements of mobile device users. This creates a privacy paradox… 

Internet Companies continue to make low-priced services better, in part, from user data. Internet Users continue to increase time spent on Internet services based on perceived value. Regulators want to ensure user data is not used ‘improperly.’

Scrutiny is rising on all sides – users / businesses / regulators. Technology-driven trends are changing so rapidly that it’s rare when one side fully understands the other…setting the stage for reactions that can have unintended consequences. And, not all countries & actors look at the issues through the same lens. 

We focus on trends around data + personalization; high relative levels of tech company R&D + Capex Spending; E-Commerce innovation + revenue acceleration; ways in which the Internet is helping consumers contain expenses + drive income (via on-demand work) + find learning opportunities.  

We review the consumerization of enterprise software and, lastly, we focus on China’s rising intensity & leadership in Internet-related markets.”

We need your opinion now – Respond to the Data Democracy Survey by @drvikram


Can patients manage their own healthcare records?

Healthcare records are a subject for an engaging discussion across the world. In India, we are just seeing the beginning of this debate. On one hand, many corporate hospitals have taken concrete measures to collect, maintain and drive insights from patient health records. While on the other hand valuable data is either not stored properly or is lying locked up in paper forms. Insights that could have saved lives are never collected.


In this context, we at Healthcare India are working on our next report on data democracy in healthcare. We have created a short survey which will help us capture the sentiments of our readers on this topic. We are also conducting interviews with healthcare leaders to get their views on the same.

The survey would take less than five minutes and will help us drive insights on this topic. Please click here to take the survey.

The responses are anonymous and we will rely on Survey Monkey technology to keep it secure.

We plan to release the report by the end of the year. Looking forward to seeing you all participate in the same.

Social Media Survey Report for Dental Practitioners in India by @drvikram and @drmayurdavda


  • 63% of respondents say they use social media professionally but only 28% have a budget for investing in it
  • 70% of respondents use social media to connect with peers; only 51% use it for patient education


Dental practitioners are reluctant adopters of social media for professional use, according to a survey report by HealthCare in India and The Dental Education. While 90% of survey respondents said they used social media for personal use, only 63% indicated that they used it for professional purposes such as connecting with peers (70%), raising awareness of their practice (61%) and educating patients (51%).


“With the government of India’s healthcare policy emphasizing on preventive healthcare, medical practitioners and hospitals have to find new ways to reach and educate patients to stay healthy. In this context, social media can be a game changer, especially for specialist care providers such as dental surgeons, ophthalmologists, dermatologists and ENT specialists,” said Dr. Vikram Venkateswaran, Founder and Editor, Healthcare in India.

The survey report, possibly the first of its kind in India, outlines possible reasons for low social media adoption as ranging from limited understanding of social media; lack of skills needed to create compelling content on social media; uncertainty around how regulatory bodies such as the Indian Dental Association perceive social media use; and absence of well-known peers using social media.

“As an education provider and a practicing dentist, I have seen interest from dentists to use social media for professional purposes. But the rigors of running a practice means they seldom have the time to invest in familiarizing themselves with this medium,” said Dr. Mayur Davda, Founder, The Dental Education. Other salient findings of the report include the following:

  • The top social media platforms used by respondents for professional work include Twitter, LinkedIn and Blogs (in that order)
  • 42% of respondents spent an average of one to five hours a week on social media pertaining to work. About 33% spent less than an hour a week.
  • Only 28% of respondents had a budget for investing in social media activities

According to the report, social media can be used to educate, promote, interact and advise patients. To this effect the report also includes a section on five commonly asked questions and actionable insights to help medical practitioners build their social media presence credibly

About the Survey

Conducted between August and December 2015 last year, the survey received responses from 114 dentists, of which 52% were women.  The responses were fairly distributed between professionals with less than five years of experience (40%), those between five and 10 years of experience (35%) and those over 10 years of experience (25%)

About Healthcare in India

Healthcare in India is a social movement for better health. We believe that revolutionary health care outcomes are possible only when patients, care providers, local communities, businesses and the government are all deeply involved in the cause for better health. We run a blog for all these stakeholders to share different perspectives on health to allow individuals to make better informed health decisions. We provide advice to healthcare organizations on their digital, marketing and social media strategies.

About The Dental Education

The Dental Education was established by Dr. Mayur Davda so that every dentist/ dental student / dental associate (like dental hygienist and dental ceramist) could get quick and easy access to the vast knowledge of dentistry on the go. The Dental Education is aiming to be as resourceful to dental students and para dental staff as it is for the dentists and offer educational services at free / subsidized cost. Dr. Davda is also President of the Dental Photography School (pioneers of Dental/ Medical Photography Training And research in India) and a Photomentor at Canon India & GPS Smile design, Las Vegas, USA.
