Protean eGov Technologies (Formerly NSDL e-Governance Infrastructure) joins hands with Indian Academy of Pediatrics to transform Last-mile Healthcare
Bombay (Maharashtra) [India], Dec. 22 (ANI/NewsVoir): In its effort to improve primary health care for millions of Indians across the country, Protean (formerly NSDL e-Gov), India’s leading e-governance institution, launched its healthcare solution ‘Protean Clinic’, along with the dIAP program of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics. The system will be offered to IAP’s 35,000 affiliated pediatricians and subsequently to all other OPD clinics, enabling early diagnosis, specialized treatment and superior patient engagement to better prevent, diagnose, treat and manage disease, both in the clinic and at home. .
OPD clinics using the system will be certified and promoted in their locations as Protean Certified SMART clinics, offering specialized services with the highest privacy and security standards. Protean plans to connect the network with the Government of India’s National Digital Health Mission to solve the lack of accurate and real-time epidemiological data, thereby strengthening health policies and national standards. Crores of Indians suffer from late or incorrect diagnosis and treatment due to severe shortage of specialists in India and lack of specialized services in OPD clinics. OPD clinics also cannot extend their reach to patients’ homes.
There is an urgent need to make specialist capabilities available in OPD clinics for early diagnosis, local treatment and timely referrals under specialist advice. Specialized services are also needed to prevent or manage lifestyle diseases and many chronic conditions. In addition, OPD clinics require patient care and high-tech medical equipment to ensure timely detection and intervention even before the patient comes to the clinic. Protean Clinic enables physicians to collaborate with their patient community to conduct timely checkups, detect red flags, intervene and diagnose early, and treat special conditions under specialist advice. The clinics will also provide specialized services in the assessment, prevention and management of chronic diseases.
Protean aims to equip tens of thousands of local health professionals with high-tech devices using its own network of more than 44,000 locations. This will enable OPD clinics across the country to provide home services for assisted telemedicine (remote physical examinations), wellness visits, rapid diagnosis, measurement and monitoring. Essentially, the platform will extend the clinic’s services, push boundaries and enable the doctors to care outside of the clinics. Suresh Sethi, Managing Director and CEO, Protean, said: “Our country is faced with the task of rapidly upgrading its OPD clinic capabilities to provide early diagnoses and treat locally under specialist advice and with specialized technology-based services. Our latest The company aims to provide better primary healthcare facilities for all Indians through a strong technology infrastructure. We are excited to partner with the Indian Academy of Pediatrics and extend our state-of-the-art platform to all its physicians for better pediatric healthcare.”
Current, incoming and immediate former presidents of IAP, Dr. Piyush Gupta, Dr. Remesh Kumar and Dr. Bakul Parekh, said: “There is a great need to expand specialized capacity across the country and to establish general pediatric clinics with specialized services, diagnostic support, and high-tech diagnostic devices, improving health outcomes for more than 100 million children. We are excited to partner with Protean eGov in this program for the children of India.” This story is provided by NewsVoir. ANI is in no way responsible for the content of this article.
