We feel mobility is the way to go and it is the inexpensive way to provide quality healthcare. Today, a mobile comes with all the elements required for audio/ visual communication and transmission. It is expected that all mobile phones manufactured and released in early 2017 onwards must have an SOS alert system and GPS tracking. Indian telemedicine is demanding light weight smart healthcare devices which can be carried anywhere and can be easily used by village entrepreneurs or health workers. Mobile penetration in India is very high and it is across the country. Slowly smartphone penetration is also increasing.
The "Make in India" initiative has helped companies like us to get an extra edge in the challenging Indian healthcare device market. With government initiatives of fibre- connectivity across villages is going to help India digitally connected and aid digital revolution. Hence, connectivity and reach would become a mute issue. However, the last mile of collecting the right data and sharing with the quality care providers has become the need of the day. The latest generation medical equipment with sophisticated system has supported physicians to diagnose and cure patients from critical and life threatening diseases. Technological advancements in video/ audio conferencing, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and healthcare information systems (HIS) have made significant inroads in providing better system for patient care. All the notable advancements made in IT are oriented towards sick care.
AMI has entered into a strategic partnership with HealthNet Global Limited (HNG) , an affiliate of Apollo Hospitals, aimed at delivering global digital health solutions for Rural Health Connect, Home Health Monitoring and Tele-health Services. Through this partnership HNG will launch a new set of digital health care solutions under the " Control-H " brand.
The Control-H Health Monitoring Device is a fully integrated solution that combines handheld medical device technology developed by AMI with the total remote healthcare solution technology developed by HealthNet Global. Control-H provides the user with essential health information at any time and place by collecting key vital data such as non-invasive blood pressure (NiBP), pulse, blood oxygen level, body temperature, blood glucose, hemoglobin and cholesterol levels via a compact and portable device and sending the data to the HNG Health Cloud.
