Mobile ODT's Enhanced Visual Assessment (EVA) System is a smartphone-based integrated cervical cancer screening and patient tracking system that enables ongoing engagement with patients. In this pilot, International Oncology will test the EVA System in cervical cancer screening programs in affiliated hospitals and outreach centers to minimize "loss to follow-up" care among patients who screen positive on primary cervical cancer screening tests.
Mobile ODT has created the Enhanced Visual Assessment (EVA) System, an integrated cervical cancer screening and patient tracking system that enables
ongoing engagement with patients through a smartphone platform. In this pilot, Apollo will be integrating MobileODT’s EVA System for digital cervicography into their primary screening for cervical cancer to reduce “loss to follow-up" and to provide
mTatva’s post-prescription solution is a text message enabled “digital-nurse” called HealthPIE. In this pilot, mTava’s technology will scan and digitize details of investigations to be done, medicines, reviews, and any details on the paper prescription, providing SMS reminders to increase patient engagement with Apollo providers through continuous communication.
Optomed Oy has created a portable cloud-based retinal camera, optimizing resources and improving eye care delivery. In this pilot, conducted in EyeQ’s super specialty eye hospitals, Retinal Surgeons and Senior Optometrists will screen patients allowing for Optomed Oy to compare the analysis of Angiography images from their low cost portable FFA camera with images from Conventional FFA Camera in order to improve access to quality eye healthcare in rural India.
Stasis Labs has developed the Stasis Monitoring System, a bedside monitoring system along with a portable tablet that serves as a patient chart because many patients remain in ICUs past the point of needed care, and need only to be monitored. In this pilot, the Stasis Monitoring System will be implemented in beds across multiple Narayana Health hospital non-ICU wards in the Bangalore Medicity Branch in order to de-congest the intensive care unit and improve operational efficiency.
Stasis Labs has created the Stasis Monitoring System, a bedside monitoring system, along with a portable tablet, that serves as a patient chart. In this pilot, the Stasis Monitoring System will be implemented in multiple post-surgical recovery beds across Cloudnine hospital non-ICU wards in the Bangalore Jayanagar Branch to monitor patients who can be relieved from the ICU but still need monitoring.
Transmural Biotech has developed quantusFLM, a non‐invasive, fast and easy‐to‐use Fetal Lung Maturity test. In this pilot, quantusFLM, will be integrated into Cloudnine’s Hospitals testing of pregnant woman at risk of late pre-term birth, or scheduled for an early term birth, to determine Fetal Lung Maturity by analyzing just an ultrasound image.
Vios Medical has created the Vios Monitoring System (VMS), allowing for automated continuous surveillance of patients’ physiological vital signs in a non-ICU setting. In this pilot, Vios will implement monitoring systems in general medical-surgical wards at Regency Healthcare allowing clinicians to monitor, manage, and provide care to patients remotely.
Vios Medical has developed the Vios Monitoring System (VMS) an alternative to the expensive, bulky, wall powered, and wired monitors that only have the capacity to be used in ICUs. In this pilot, Vios will implement monitoring systems to test at-home monitoring for Portea clients allowing for continuous surveillance of patients’ physiological vital signs to care for patients remotely.
Ceeable is piloting their Visual Field Analyzer system at Dr. Agarwal clinic sites to quickly and accurately screen patients. In addition to rapid screening, the Ceeable test will increase diagnostic and hospital efficiencies by allowing clinicians to quickly access comprehensive test results upon completion of the test.
ZedScan, Zilico's product, utilizes Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) to improve the ability to detect cervical cancer following an abnormal smear result, increasing diagnostic accuracy. In their pilot with International Oncology, they aim to increase early detection and quickly enable treatment.
WellDoc's BlueStar is a mobile prescription therapy application for adults with Type 2 diabetes. In their pilot with Max Healthcare, they will test BlueStar with Type 2 diabetes patients to track blood glucose, medications and dietary habits over time to improve patient engagement and decrease patients' HbA1c levels.
