Internet of Things has the huge potential for a massive impact it can have on the health care industry, it has a myriad of applications, which benefit the patient, and their families and physicians alike. The mistakes made due to human errors are slowly going down after the introduction of IOT in the healthcare Industry. With advancement in technology, with an introduction to the healthcare industry, IOT totally transformed the way medical health functioned and was perceived, with mitigating chances of human error, providing much more organized and effective healthcare services to the one in need.
Such a technology is now available in the market by Sanohub technologies which has already transformed the personalized healthcare services by offering them innovative digital healthcare services through a recently launched Sanohub' VitaCuro product, a game changer in the personalized health sector.
Since its inception in 2016, Sanohub Technologies has instituted new benchmarks within the healthcare industry by empowering the personalized healthcare services providers in delivering high-quality care at home through its unique capabilities like remote patient monitoring, online video consultation, and continuous patient engagement. Ageing Population, Rise in non-communicable diseases, and access to quality healthcare are some of the issues that need to be addressed to increase the outcome of Treatments. The current systems and Platforms are addressing primarily transactions like appointment scheduling, Medicine Delivery, Diagnostic Services and hence, a little focus and awareness is left on addressing the need to extend the care towards prevention proactively and managing health conditions outside traditional Hospital setup that require continuity of care.
Sanohub's Digital Heatlhcare platform, VitaCuro, takes care of all the hindrances in enabling better Heatlhcare by providing a complete care sequence including the transactional services in a cost-effective manner.
With the proliferation of digital and IOT technologies, Sanohub is driving a paradigm shift and enabling differentiated digital Healthcare services in the care continuum. To further gain insight into this health tech disruptor, we interviewed Sridhar Perepa, CEO of Sanohubon its successful endeavor and its bright future…
Here are the edited excerpts
What problem is Sanohub Technologies focusing on and how is it different from others in the field?
We have started the company with a view that participation of patients is core to enabling better Healthcare. With that purpose, we have developed the product as "Patient-Centric" and all the design decisions and positioning in the product is pivoted on this. This common purpose drives the team to have a shared vision. The care management is shifting from traditional hospital set up to outside as per the convenience of patient/user. Healthcare service providers and patients need technology/solution to manage the shift while ensuring the Quality Care. Our Product, VitaCuro enables better care management for healthcare service providers to reach patients/users anytime & anywhere and help manage their health conditions in a holistic manner.
Sanohub's flagship VitaCuro's patient engagement platform
We differentiate ourselves as a focused Product/Technology provider for the healthcare organizations to improve their quality of care with our technical expertise and domain knowledge.
Who is the company's ideal customer and how does the company currently approach them?
Our ideal customers are Healthcare service providers who cater to the needs of patients requiring continuity of care. The three areas of care where we are currently focusing on are Pregnancy care, Chronic illness care, Elderly Care. We follow B2B model and our customer business entities can be Clinics / Hospitals for out-patient care, Transition care and rehabilitation centers, Elderly care service provides, Home Healthcare service providers and other services providers who are into Medical Tourism, Onsite Health Centers in Corporates etc
How did the company get to where it is today?
We have developed initial product requirements based on market research and current trends in healthcare with the focus on patient engagement and continuity of care as the key differentiators. The requirements were validated with early adopters, including a hospital, a speciality care provider for elderly, patients with chronic illness and a speciality remote healthcare provider. We have developed an initial prototype of IoT digital platform by integrating FDA approved health monitoring devices using Mobile and Web Technologies. The prototype was demonstrated to end users for validation and update on the product requirements. Further, we have received direct market feedback through participation in exhibitions and events and through these inputs, we have refined the product requirements.
Our product is now commercially available and actively used across a different category of healthcare service providers that include Clinic / Hospital / Transition care Center / OHC and Medical Value travel service provider.
Where do you want to company to be in the upcoming year?
We would like to be known as leaders and trendsetters in enabling better Healthcare towards Pregnancy care, Chronic care and Elderly care through innovative Digital Healthcare services.
What are the greatest obstacles for the company this year?
The healthcare delivery market is in transformation phase along with new initiatives and frameworks that GoI is working on for Healthcare like National Electronic Health Act (NEHA) and Digital Information Security in Healthcare Act (DISHA) and also the impact of Accreditation requirements for participating in Universal Healthcare Initiatives. The customers are aware of the direction that they need to take and see value in our solution/technology but may want to wait until GoI frameworks are finalized.
How are you planning to overcome them?
As our solution is built with patient/consumer as the centre of the solution, we ensured utmost privacy and consent driven access to others for the health data, so in a way, our solution is in line with the requirements proposed by these standards. We are always following the latest standards to ensure it gets built into our product roadmap, thus ensuring our customers are compliant with the laws and keep their focus on delivering Quality Care and we take care of the technology for them.
Share your Experiences!
In our experience, we have found the providers who have an inherent need for providing remote care and/or requiring collaboration/coordination among caregivers are most amenable to use VitaCuro. They are able to provide better value for their service through VitaCuro and derive benefit in retaining their clientele and scaling their business by providing better care. Many of the providers who have shown interest currently and using other IT systems to run their business operations have an inherent issue concerning the use of different software systems. We work closely with these organizations and provide a technical solution to overcome this constraint. With an increase in standardization of Digital Healthcare interoperability and compliance, we expect to streamlining of digital Healthcare services and accelerate the proliferation of VitaCuro.
