About our project

The problem we solve: We are providing quality healthcare in rural India where access to hospitals is limited, and patients often receive inaccurate diagnostic due to limited access to registered doctors. Our Telemedicine platform reduces healthcare cost by 60%-70%, eliminates travel time and enables high patient satisfaction as they are treated by registered doctors who are assisted by local caregivers (nurses, rural medical practitioners).

About our solution: Our platform leverages cloud, mobility and IOT technologies to create an ecosystem of doctors, caregiver, patient, labs, hospitals and pharmacies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WqVLzwGnnp4&feature=youtu.be

Progress to date:

In the first phase of the pilot, we have completed 1800 tele-consultations across 10 villages leveraging 50+ doctors and 20 caregivers (Nurses and Rural Medicine Practitioners). In the phase 2, we are looking to expand the program: 

- Setting up Telemedicine PODs in Primary Healthcare centers
- Providing emergency support 
- Expanding the program to 60 villages
- Develop a basic electronic healthcare recording system for patients

To support the Phase 2 of the pilot,  we are looking to raise funding as we don't have any financial support from state government yet.  We will appreciate your support to the rural population that do not have access to quality and affordable healthcare.

How We Help Patients

our healthcare platform reduces cost by 60%-70%, eliminates travel and delivers quality healthcare from registered doctors on-demand or by appointment. In the phase 2 of the pilot we are adding emergency service to guide patients to nearby hospitals or other healthcare facilities. In addition to patient consultation, we provide post consultation services like reminding patients on medication, lab tests and follow-up calls.  In Phase 1 of the pilot, we have achieved high patient satisfaction (95%) and desire to continue on our platform (97%).     

How We Help Physicians

we are working with hospitals to provide referrals in this point. In future, our system will be able to determine the hospital patient should routed to, based on availability in ICU and other key resources. We are building a network of doctors to support Tele-Consultations.  To scale to 13000 villages in Andhra pradesh, we need 1100+ doctors in our system. To achieve this, we are partnering with teaching hospitals to recruite junior doctors, in addition to the experienced , senior doctors.              

How We Help Hospitals

Our telemedicine platform allows remote consultation and monitoring - this allows less patient care at the hospitals. 

How We Help Partners

We are creating referrals for pharmacy and lab partners in this point.

Innovation Details

Intellectual Property Summary

The smart healthcare model was developed by cosine labs in collaboration with UC Berkeley. We consider this as open innovation for masses. For more information, please refer to the book : "The road to Mori - Smart Villages of tomorrow" , written by Dr. Solomon Darwin, avilable in Amazon.com.  

Clinical Information

IN the pilot phase 1 , we have completed 1800+ teleconsultations. 300+ patient surveys were done - we have achieved 95%+ patient satisfaction, 97% patients want to continue leveraging our telemedicine platform.   

Regulatory Status

We are running our platform in India with 500+ registered doctors in this point. We will be filing for FDA documents in 2019. 

How we will use the funds raised

In the longer run, with government support for insurance, our healthcare platform will be self-sufficient. However, in the short term, we need some funding.  Funding will be used to subsidize healthcare cost and develop an electronic healthcare record for rural population. We are looking to build the EHR solution leveraging open source softwares - this EHR will help hospitals to access patient data from our mobile telemedicine platform. 

 

Thank You

There are 650,000 villages in India -  70% of the 1.3 billion population lives in village. 90% of this rural population do not have access to affordable, quality healthcare. Our initiative is leveraging open innovation to deliver a quality, affordable healthcare solution. Join us to deliver care to the mass population.
