The app will be a boon for remote area hospitals where non-availability of doctors is a major issue.
The Society for Administration of Telemedicine and Health Informatics (Sathi) has joined hands with a Hyderabad-based engineering institute to jointly develop a cloud-based app, which facilitates prompt medical attention to a patient even if there is no doctor available at short notice.
The app will be a boon for remote area hospitals where non-availability of doctors is a major issue. It will enable the nurse to take a photograph of the wound, feed it into the computer system software, and in hardly any time an analysis of the wound will come up with suggestions on how to handle it by giving first aid. Dr Sridhar Pappu and Dr Dakshinamurthy V Kolluru from International School of Engineering (Insofe) is involved in developing the application.
The app highlights how data science analytics and latest technology can be utilised to bridge the wide healthcare gap in the country’s health system.
