Access to Healthcare

The Institute for Transformative Technologies started in 2014 with a simple but compelling question: how can the world’s leading centres of R&D solve the biggest social and environmental challenges affecting the global poor? To answer that question, we began with the 50 Breakthroughs study to identify the most effective ways in which advanced technology can move the needle on such problems. We now work with a global network of research institutions and inventors to find the most promising early-stage technologies, and then with established companies, NGOs and public agencies around the world to bring these breakthroughs to life.

The Institute for Transformative Technologies (ITT) has been working with the support of the Tata Trusts, to build a technology-enabled primary healthcare delivery model. The vision is to create/co-develop/curate an integrated turnkey solution with biometric-enabled patient medical records system, standardized clinical protocols, a simple clinic management system (ERP) and an integrated suite of point-of-care diagnostics, to ensure high quality primary care. Over the past 6 months, the ITT team has demonstrated the model in one Sub-Centre (SC) in Maharashtra, and a couple of clinics in Kenya. The next step is to create a product that can help scale the model across hundreds of clinics in India and Kenya.
