Abstract: Fiber to the home is a useful technology which is used by different industries including healthcare. Though it is expensive that is why it is difficult to implement worldwide but still it proves essential tools in the healthcare sector. It is a helpful tool in different health care purpose such as monitoring, sending fast and effective information, enhancing the quality of health care, providing E-health solutions, telemedicine, tele-surgery, health education and many more. In this paper we are trying to find out the scope, opportunities and difficulties of fiber to home in Indian health care system and the impact of FTTH on enhancing efficiencies of Health-Care system and quality service delivery. For measuring the impact of FTTH, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) has been used as a statistical tool in this study. It is found that the growing demand of health care need requires fast and effective health care which is only possible by having high speed network facilities. So if Indian health care system is able to implement FTTH, then they can reach every people and can enhance the quality of health care.
