In the wake of increasing cancer cases and the poor specialist: patient ratio in India, we worked with our client to develop a digital health solution that could be deployed across their entire network of 25 hospitals
We were able to achieve a 95% paperless operation with a TAT reduction of 30%, improving patient and provider experience across facilities.
The client, one of India’s largest philanthropic groups, wanted to design and develop an oncology focused digital health solution for a network of 25 cancer hospitals.
India has high cancer incidence of over 1.45 million people per year and there is only 1 oncologist per million population, making access to cancer care difficult. The client wanted an IT solution to enable an integrated model of care where diagnosis, care planning and monitoring could be delivered seamlessly across the network.
The cancer care continuum begins with screening for the disease and ends with palliative care. Most systems focus on treatment and system’s capabilities must be expanded to provide cross continuum care with real time sharing of clinical data and collaboration.
This solution was designed through a multi-pronged approach. Data of existing practices was scarce and unstructured, so we studied large volume cancer centers in India and abroad.
To develop a unique system, the patient has to be central to the solution
