Kolkata: 8th August 2011
Heart patients in rural areas can now walk in for tests at their local clinics, which will be connected to a central hospital in a big city via an information technology component, making it possible for immediate analysis by leading experts. In order to provide rural India with basic cardiac health care services, Roche Diagnostics India, the Indian arm of the Fortune 500 healthcare multinational Roche Diagnostics, has come up with an Integrated Cardiovascular Clinical Network (iCCnet) solution, eliminating the need for travelling to metros for treatment. The model uses point-of care testing and IT system to improve the access and delivery of professional cardiac care in the rural areas.
