Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) – cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), chronic respiratory diseases, diabetes and cancer – are a major threat to health and economic growth of Indian population. World Health Organization (WHO) report suggests that 1 in 4 Indian adult risks dying from an NCD before they reach the age of 70. It is also estimated that collectively Indians would lose $3.55 trillion during 2012-2030 due health expenditures and productivity loss.
Chikitsak LifeSciences provides a cost-effective large scale NCD screening solution for under-served populations by leveraging technology and community outreach model. It is creating a pool of dedicated, trained; technology enabled healthcare micro-entrepreneurs called Chikitsaks. These primary healthcare workers will serve as a bridge between the healthcare ecosystem and communities, in both rural India and urban India.
Chikitsak LifeSciences leverages a proprietary technology solution that has a clinical decision support system bundled with certified medical devices. This allows for seamless data transfer from medical devices without manual data entry and thus reducing data entry/omission errors. This in turn is integrated with an enterprise grade electronic health records system for health data storage and retrievals.
