Present Healthcare Ecosystem in India:
The Healthcare ecosystem in India seems to be striding an optimistic path. Technology is playing a critical role in improving the accessibility, availability and productivity of healthcare solutions. The healthcare sector is moving towards leveraging technology and recentering its philosophy towards patient care.
Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) and healthcare internet of things or medical internet of things, IoMT is bringing in significant changes and increasing productivity and seamless functioning in the field of healthcare. It is enhancing treatment-outcomes and improving patient care .
New Technology Adoptions in Health Care:
India is leading in the adoption of digital health technology with 76% of healthcare professionals in the country already using digital health records (DHRs) in their practice, according to a 15-country Future Health Index (FHI) 2019 report by Royal Philips, a global leader in health technology.Digital Health Records/ Electronic Health Records have seen wide adoption in most of the private healthcare providers in India .Especially after the release of EHR standards for India, private healthcare providers have now shifted their focus to EHR adoption.
Simbo.ai a pioneer in explainable AI : Smart voice based doctor assistant
Simbo.ai, is a pioneer in explainable AI has designed a smart voice based doctor assistant called SIMBO. SIMBO creates EMR documentation using in-house Speech To Text engine and Natural Language Understanding – NLU. Further its Patent-Pending technology BISLU (Brain Inspired Spoken Language Understanding) and GIPCA (General Intelligent Predictive & Corrective Architecture) enables doctors to create EMR under 30 secs, without software installation and is platform agnostic.
Simbo is truly a doctor’s productivity accelerator. Below are SIMBO’s distinct features that aid doctors in seamless patient consultation.
SIMBO’s state of art technology features:
Simbo’s features are divided into 4 subheads. User friendly, Performance, Accuracy and Human Like Intelligence.
- User Friendly: Simbo’s user friendly interface does not need a keyboard or mouse. It requires no software installation and is platform agnostic. Further it also allows doctors to take plain notes and edit while documenting the Electronic Health Record.
- Performance: Simbo’s real-time and noise tolerant design ensures high performance. Using SIMBO’s templates, doctors can create EMR in less than 30 seconds. Further its real time interactive design makes sure that EMR can be created without following particular rules.
- Accuracy: Simbo is highly accurate even in noisy environments , with 2.6% word Error Rate (WER) and 3.1% Sentence Error Rate (SER), this makes SIMBO one among the best in the world.
- Human Like Intelligence: Simbo with its patent pending BISLU and GIPCA technology is beyond a dictation tool. Doctor’s do not have to dictate SIMBO. Simbo’s human-like intelligence allows it to adapt to doctors’ style of conversation through its structured data extractor. Further doctors do not have to follow sequences. SIMBO can auto sort into relevant heading and doctor can also spell out a medicine if not caught
SIMBO is trained from 1crore audio recordings. It supports all Indian English accents and it is trained on Indian clinical terms.
Simbo – Doctor’s productivity accelerator:
Simbo is designed to empower. Aimed to transform patient care and Accelerate doctor’s productivity by allowing them to focus on pure play patient consultation and diagnosis. Simbo can also pre-screen the patients,by working like a smart doctor assistant and prepares EMR documentation with industry best accuracy. Simbo enables doctors to focus on their core competency and performs the other required tasks.
Technology like SIMBO is designed to change the very functioning of the healthcare environment in India.
SIMBO – Healthcare Industry’s best SaaS:
Simbo enables any EMR to be a Voice EMR by assuming the role of the voice-front end (interface). Simbo.ai currently supports voice-input. It provides an API over websocket to send voice-data and receive JSON responses. Simbo has a noise-tolerant ASR engine coupled with AI-based NLU. It provides a real time API to create interactive high-performance solutions. Using templates doctors can create EMR in less than 30 seconds. It enables the voice based EMR to be beyond a dictation tool. Simbo’s human-like intelligence allows it to adapt to doctors’ style of conversation.
Technology Way Forward:
Adoption of emerging technologies in explainable Artificial Intelligence (AI) and healthcare internet of things or medical internet of things, IoMT will be the key for Indian healthcare to take a winning leap. These technologies will also enable the healthcare experts in addressing its serious shortcomings in care delivery.
If the modern technologies are implemented, adopted and rolled out in an organic manner in the present healthcare environment, delivery, it can significantly reduce wait times and improve productivity greatly by minimising human intervention in electronic medical records (EMRs)/enterprise resource planning (ERP)/hospital information systems (HISs).
Healthcare in India is complex due to the multi-layered architecture of health system administration. Both government and private hospitals are adopting emerging technologies like SIMBO. This adoption can design a path for an optimistic, efficient and accessible service for the healthcare industry in India. Leveraging technology will definitely create better patient care , customer experience and operational excellence in the healthcare ecosystem.An integrated healthcare delivery system is the need of the hour.
