To expand research on patterns of certain diseases

Gurugram-based startup MyHealthcare has partnered with Ashoka University to build evidence based, clinical research across hypertension, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. With the growing need for chronic care management in India, the partnership aims to research and build clinical models that will help deliver better care outcomes.

 MyHealthcare will work with Ashoka University to improve clinical data collection, curation, and analytics and help develop evidence based clinical decision support system across key chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes. 

As a part of this engagement, Ashoka University will provide its expertise in data analysis, biomedical research and public health expertise in data collection and will further ensure access to scientists, academicians, data analysts, public health experts etc. for accelerating this joint research initiative.

With 78 million diabetes patients, India ranks second in the world for this growing lifestyle disease. It’s estimated that there will be 134 million people living with diabetes in India by 2045. Furthermore, World Health Organisation estimates that 70% of deaths in India will be due to chronic diseases over the next 8 years. Studies and development of effective care models from clinical research institutions will be key in delivering a preventive treatment framework to help contain, manage and work towards slowing down the growth of chronic diseases.
