Research Interventions: A critical element to meet our vision
We have accomplished
1. Root-Cause Healthcare Analysis
2. Critical Care Management
3. Prevention and Wellness
4. AI-enabled model predicting High-Risk Disease Patterns
We focused on both in-house research and external collaborations that enabled us to increase our operational efficiency and productivity. Our multidisciplinary approach towards research is led by strong partnerships which enabled us to build an inclusive and sustainable business model. Together it has improved the health and livelihood of our beneficiaries exchanged learning opportunities, and generated an urge for strong public policies.
Some of the opportunities which we have developed through various partnerships are as follows:
McGill University: This collaborative approach involved working with McGill University, Canada on MMA projects. The concept of the partnership was based on three Use Cases by the McGill students to contribute towards developing AI-enabled framework to predict the Hypertensive Asian Population. The impact arising from this research is diverse, for example, the AI-enabled framework will help develop evidence-based research interventions for NCD management, support technology innovations in public health services and inform policy and practices for better hypertension disease management.
Lifeplus: Use of digital technology is increasing at exponential growth. However, it is important to analyze its effectiveness in-home healthcare and personalized care. iKure’s collaboration with Stanford University on the use of Bio-sensory Lifeplus smartwatch is an effort towards understanding its positive outcomes on individual’s health and their willingness to embrace m-health. Through the support of the UK partner, we are exploring new forms of data, developing approaches to analyze different functionalities to create better experience for users.
CORT- iKure together with Centre for Operations Research and Training (CORT) has collaborated for a research program, IHSC to assess the capacity of HWCs to deliver Comprehensive Primary Care Services.
