With only 30 per cent of the country’s combined medical forces serving 840 million people in rural India, shortage of doctors severely affects the availability of basic health care. iKure has been formulated to address this pressing need of health care among the country’s rural population. We provide accessible and affordable primary care using technology called WHIMS enabling last mile reach to quality primary care.
To bridge the rural-urban health disparity, we have established a network of Rural Health Centres (RHCs) across remote areas of West Bengal. Each of its RHCs resourced with qualified MBBS doctors, nurses, para-medics, and diagnostic tests facilities provides a one-window approach for primary health needs of the community. Enabled with WHIMS, the health centres are linked with tertiary hospitals for real time consultation and escalation. Our cloud-based platform is available on subscription, starting Rs 2,000 a month. This is capable of running even at low bandwidth speeds of 10 kbps. More than 200,000 patients have benefitted by availing iKure services and we expect to impact 800,000 rural residents by 2014
