Unlocking the Potential of Connected Healthcare in India –
an impact assessment report
India’s public healthcare infrastructure has huge challenges in terms of service accessibility and quality of patient care. According to the Global Health Security Index 2021, which measures a country’s preparedness for epidemics and pandemics, India ranks 66th out of all 195 countries and 9th out of 13 countries that have a population size of >100 million. There are challenges across the spectrum of availability, accessibility and affordability of healthcare infrastructure and services in India that were further accentuated and highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Adopting innovative technology solutions in healthcare can help mitigate some of these challenges, while improving the overall quality of patient care in India – especially within public healthcare delivery. Government policies like the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission (ABDM) and regulations which allow 100% Foreign Direct Investment in the medical technology sector are a step in the right direction. However, there is also a need for targeted public private interventions which can help tackle these challenges.
Dozee is one such example of technology innovation which could help solve some of the critical availability and accessibility challenges faced by public healthcare institutions.
Sattva Consulting carried out an independent retrospective assessment study to measure the impact of Dozee and estimate its potential on the public healthcare delivery system in India. The assessment aimed to study the adoption and acceptance of the device; its impact on workload of the medical staff; its impact on quality of patient care and on operational cost at hospitals; and the impact of digitisation of patient vitals.
