Newly launched Protean Clinic to enable physicians to collaborate with their patient community to perform timely checkups, detect red flags, intervene early and diagnose, and treat special conditions under specialist advice
Protean (formerly NSDL e-Gov) has 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.
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.
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 specialist technology-enabled services. Our latest venture aims to provide better primary health care to all Indians based on 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 health care.”
The current, incoming and immediate former presidents of IAP, Dr. Piyush Gupta, Dr. Remesh Kumar and Dr. Bakul Parekh, said: “There is a strong need to expand specialist capacity across the country and provide general pediatric clinics with specialist services, diagnostic support and high-tech diagnostic devices, improving health outcomes for more than 100 million children. We are delighted to partner with Protean eGov in this program for the children of India.”
