Research and Development for My Healthline application started extensively in 2018.
3T: Technology (product suite), training (ARPHFellows), tracking (FHW and patients) My Healthline constituting of Web portal, Application and Helpline system in many languages Indian and International languages. The frontline healthcare workers armed with AI enabled software will conduct symptom assessments, surveys and screen the target population for Oral,Cervical,Breast cancers and Covid-19. The continuous process over the period of the programme will result in skilled healthcare workers, an aware general population, seed the preventive healthcare acumen and collect real time health data. The real time health data will help Map the population for Habits,chronic diseases and disease burden.
From January to December 2018, the Aaroogya team coordinated door to door research, pathological diagnoses, health check ups and counseling, advanced diagnoses and triaging, and patient mobilization for necessary treatments in India’s capital city of Delhi and NCR.
After Aaroogya’s research and development team collected data on the general health status, lifestyle, topography, and demography of the area, the team compiled a base of targeted health-related intervention prospects to steer patient consultations, check-ups, and screening strategies. Health camps were erected to facilitate health care counseling and the collection and analysis of pathological blood, tissue and excretory tests. Patients who tested positive for cancerous growth or other diseases were subsequently examined further by doctors to determine a proper plan of recovery and treatment. Patients were then presented options for treatment to assure the most cost-effective and efficient avenue to recovery, and finally taken to a partner hospital to assure their full and proper treatment. 5,000 women were screened for breast cancer, 2000 children were assessed, and all 7,000 were evaluated for malnutrition, tuberculosis, and hypertension.
Additionally, 15,000 ambassadors were trained in early cancer detection and early diagnosis to be able to spread awareness about these issues to their constituent communities, and were given eco-friendly, bacteria-free, reusable sanitary napkins (fact check). 24 research fellows were also trained in the Delhi campaigns to become global health leaders.
Aaroogya’s work in Delhi and NCR reflected three of our primary desired outcomes: Awareness, Accessibility, and Affordability. 7,000 women and children were screened for life-threatening diseases, given access to treatment centers, and counseled to assure that the most cost-effective treatments would be employed to assure a complete recovery, while 15,000 future health care leaders were educated on the pertinent health care issues of their region.
