We have been fortunate in having DigiHealth Platform working with us at Karunashraya to help develop IT based solutions for use in Palliative Care.
This has been in three different areas, viz:
a) developing a smartphone mobile app containing information on the treatment and management of some sixteen common problems in Palliative care.
Based in ten modules, this provides speedy and relevant information to non-specialist doctors, especially in rural areas. It is available on both Android and iOS platforms.
b) Cloud-based support for learning for those participants on our many training programmes
c) developing suitable mobile technology to help our home care teams to document and track symptoms for patients at home. This will improve our ability to respond promptly and modify medications as necessary.
Without the inputs fro DigiHealth Platform, this would not have been possible.
Their friendly, enthusiastic approach, willingness to be flexible, understand the problems and design appropriate solutions has led to excellent partnership working. They are thoroughly professional, very approachable, meticulous in detail and it has been a delight to undertake collaborative work with them.
We look forward to a fruitful ongoing mutually beneficial relationship.
