Innovation Description

iKure is creating an integrated network of rural health centers to provide affordable quality healthcare in close proximity to underserved rural populations of India.

iKure applies a unique combination of technology intervention, skills training, and capacity building to create a sustainable health care model that impacts rural life nationwide. With the aim to create a comprehensive solution for delivering effective care at the grassroots, the company has established Rural Health Centers (RHCs) staffed by doctors available seven days a week, pharmacists dispensing accredited medicines, trained health workers and a Mobile Medical Unit to cater to the critical health needs of the rural patients.

In order to strengthen this network iKure has recruited a team of qualified health care professionals to provide continuous clinical and technical training and control processes through standard operating procedures.

For efficient operation iKure has also developed a patent pending software called Wireless Health Incident Monitoring System (WHIMS). WHIMS allows for centralized monitoring of key metrics such as doctor’s attendance, treatment prescriptions, and pharmacy stock management. The system supports effective communication, integration and contact between the Rural Health Centers and city-based Multi-Specialty hospitals and doctors.

The network offers a range of services, including: doctor consultations, diagnostic services, laboratory testing services, and referrals. The programs outreach also includes health camps for gynecology, diabetes, and eye care.
