COVID-19 pandemic has created significant disruptions globally and presented multiple challenges for healthcare providers. We at iKure, have been focusing on multiple solutions and initiatives to address some of these challenges.
Solutions from iKure:
COVID Awareness & Counseling: The solution involves creating mass awareness through a combination of IVR (Interactive Voice Response) and iKure Health App. The information shared is in strict compliance with Government protocols and available in the local languages.
- Telemedicine Application: iKure Telemedicine App enables community members to schedule consultations with remote Physicians. Our frontline health workers who visit the patients at their homes can facilitate this engagement.
- Training of Frontline Health Wokers: iKure trains frontline health workers on a Train-The-Trainer approach. These Trainers include volunteers and SHG (Self Help Group) members who in turn train ASHA (Accredited Social Health Activist) workers selected by the health department from the State Government. These trained ASHA workers are deployed across the state for awareness, counseling and identification of high-risk members. The Train-The-Trainer training is done remotely using iKure Health App.
- COVID-19 Health Intervention Program: The intervention focuses on awareness, counseling, and screening for Corona Virus. It is done either by conducting a general health camp or through home visits by ASHA and ANM (Auxiliary Nurse Midwife) workers.
- iKure Population Health Management System: iKure has a proprietary population health management system called WHIMS (Wireless Health Incident Monitoring System). WHIMS is a medical collaboration platform and can integrate the various stakeholders in the primary healthcare ecosystem including patients, doctors, frontline health workers and primary healthcare clinics.
