iKure is developing and applying a variety of digital solutions to help India solve its healthcare quality and access issues.
With India being the second-most populous country in the world, it is no surprise that the public healthcare system struggles with both quality and accessibility due to lack of funding. Studies have shown that avoidable deaths per year in India caused by lack of access or insufficient healthcare is in the millions.
The country can’t meet the healthcare needs of its large population through traditional means because of the cost required. Instead, advancements in healthtech will be necessary to make the most of limited resources. Companies like iKure are doing just that; developing and applying technological solutions to make the healthcare system more efficient.
iKure, located in West Bengal, is using technology in a variety of ways to improve healthcare quality and access for people in India, especially those in rural communities who are often extremely underserved. They have a long list of projects that are solving problems through the adoption of new technologies.
According to a study published in 2017, India has only 4.8 doctors per 10,000 people. By integrating telemedicine into the healthcare system, iKure can make the most of each doctor’s time. iKure has also partnered with IBM to apply artificial intelligence for more accurate and efficient medical treatments.
In response to -19, iKure is using their mobile app to educate the population, provide telemedicine support, and offer training to medical professionals.
By using a variety of digital solutions to solve healthcare issues, iKure is making quality care accessible throughout India.
