I am part of a unique initiative in India/ US that is trying to solve the problem of shortage of healthcare workers in hospitals and improve quality of patient care. The project is in partnership with Stanford University and Narayana Hrudayalaya (NH): http://extreme.stanford.edu/projects/care-companion
The pilot at NH Mysore has been successful and the response from the patients has been really positive. While we implement this program to other hospitals within NH, we are looking at expanding our reach and creating a business model around our idea.
1. It would be really helpful to know the various platforms we can tap into in order to reach out potential investors/ partners and experts/ mentors in the healthcare sector in India.
2. We are also investigating the feasibility of including a mobile application to further improve post-distarge communication with patients families. Would be great to be connected with organizations working on mobile technology.
We are right now based out of Mysore/ Bangalore/ US. Thank you!
