A team of Engineers, Doctors & Business experts.

Background

Government studies state that 60% of the population in rural and remote areas lack access to proper primary care due to a lack of manpower, skills, and basic medical devices. Additionally, challenges include in the health care system include large geographical coverage, 70 % specialist not found in position (at local health centres), the mismatch between the medical specialist’s vis-a-vis facilities & staff, sub-optimal usage, inactivity, and inaccessibility of the centres and misdiagnosis in telehealth due to lack of real-time medical data transmission. The most common but serious medical error made during telemedicine is misdiagnosis – due to the lack of adequate real-time medical data of the patients. In current telemedicine techniques, clinicians make several correct diagnoses in clinical scenarios where photographs/video/audio alone are not adequate, but when basic additional medical parameters (body temperature, Heart, lung & abdomen sounds, pulse rate, heart rate, Spo2, Blood pressure, real-time data for vision exams, ear exams, throat exams) were important, they regularly failed to diagnose properly, and performance was also poor.

Considering challenges in the rural healthcare system and infrastructure in terms of medical staff availability, quality care, connectivity, bandwidth, and facility we provide a solution addressing these limitations.

Calidad Healthcare Private Limited is a telehealth start-up focussed on addressing the primary health care needs of society. Overcoming the challenges in the rural healthcare system and infrastructure in terms of medical staff availability, quality care, connectivity, and infrastructure we have developed a telehealth platform for guided medical examination. Our solution includes a web platform (for the doctor), mobile application (for the patients)  and add-on medical devices that seamlessly integrate with the application. The solution connects people to live clinicians anytime /anywhere to provide a guided examination, video consultation, routine checkups, and digitised prescriptions. The solution works on low bandwidth and transmits live patient data securely. The solution is designed to meet the primary health care needs of the semi-urban and rural communities by making telehealth affordable, accessible, and available. Moreover, build a telehealth ecosystem by instilling confidence in telehealth solutions in these regions.
