Intelehealth is a tech platform for delivering comprehensive primary health care by means of an expertly crafted knowledge engine.
Over 3.8 billion people, or half the world's population, still misses out on essential health services. A lot of times, rural villagers in need of treatment live too far away from their city’s hospital and are unable to make the trip due to financial or health reasons. At Intelehealth, we believe in the vision of Health for All - that everybody should be able to access the health services they need, when and where they need them without facing financial hardship.
Intelehealth is a digital health and telemedicine platform for supporting community health workers. Our app contains a digital assistant to guide health workers through common tasks, such as recording a patient’s history or conducting a physical exam. These health workers can also connect with real world experts over telemedicine to expand their capabilities as a provider of primary care services. They are able to provide advanced healthcare services, including those related to women’s health, maternal and child health, noncommunicable disease management, infectious disease management, mental health, and elderly care.
We provide easy-to-use, low bandwidth, mobile software driven by an expert system - HxGuide. It provides evidence-based protocols and a knowledge engine to support task-shifting to community health workers. It also enables teleconsultations with remote doctors so health workers can forward cases beyond their level of training.
We provide training in technology-based primary health care delivery for all stakeholders - health workers, doctors, and project leadership. Our training programs cover technical skills, medical skills, operational and communication skills.
A lot goes into a successful tech-enabled program. We provide experienced on the ground staff to build capacity for organizations who want to replicate our PHC model or who want to integrate our tech into their own PHC models.
Armed with powerful insights generated using structured data from HxGuide, implementers can closely monitor the impact of their programs as well as perform disease surveillance, health worker monitoring and beneficiary tracking.
Access to health is a basic human right
At Intelehealth, we believe that technology is the key to solving the health access crisis. We set up programs with partner organizations that connect the fractured health ecosystem and make it more accessible for patients. By using our software platform, frontline health workers are able to significantly reduce the time, distance, money and effort spent by patients to access health care.
Technology that makes a difference
The Intelehealth platform helps in the integration of telemedicine as a health delivery system in communities, hence improving the access to quality primary health care. As a result, the impact is multifold. Organizations that used Intelehealth were able to save their beneficiaries Rs. 615 (combining direct costs and indirect costs of accessing primary care), 160 kms in distance traveled to access care and 1.5 days per health event, resulting in:
>70% reduction in distance traveled to access primary care
>75% reduction in time taken to access primary care
Approximately 60% reduction in the average spend to access basic primary care
