CryptoRelief has partnered with 10BedICU Project to augment the public healthcare infrastructure in India.
Crypto Relief has partnered with and funded the 10BedICU project which is adding critical care infrastructure in rural hospitals. 10BedICU is a partnership of eGovernments Foundation, Karuna Trust and Nirmaan Organisation.
In response to the Covid 2nd wave, 10BedICU was specifically created to work with creating 10 Bedded ICU wards in Government Hospitals in rural and remote districts, so as to handle the severe cases of Covid locally.
The project aims to create a lasting impact on the public health infrastructure by introducing CARE - an open-source healthcare platform from eGovernments Foundation, for pandemic management and tools for efficient utilization and smooth operation of these ICU infrastructures. A new TeleICU module is also being launched to bring in intensivists and other specialists online to help rural patients.
The project is implemented through a PPP model, where the Health Department of the concerned state actively participates in the deployment and continued operation of these ICUs.
Talking about this initiative, Sandeep Nailwal, Founder of Crypto Relief said, “With this project, we aim to set up the infrastructure in collaboration with the government and equip it with an open-source technology platform to ensure access to critical care at Tertiary Level Hospitals.”
“Our contribution does not end at providing ICU equipment to the selected hospitals. We are aware of the fact that our system lacks skilled doctors and specialists to cater to the patients seeking critical care, especially in rural areas. Hence, I feel that the Tele-ICU tooling is one of the most valuable contributions we are bringing to the project” says the Co-Founder of eGovernments Foundation, Mr Srikanth Nadhamuni.
The Tele-ICU feature within CARE software allows the local doctor to work with a specialist at a TeleICU Hub to provide high-quality care to patients in remote hospitals. Features such as hi-res video camera integration and remote monitoring of vitals are all supported in this TeleICU module.
So far, Crypto Relief has supported the project to add 340 ICU Beds with 24 ICU Units in Karnataka and 10 ICU Units in Andhra Pradesh.
