iCHR- Protecting Child’s Health and Ensuring Proper Nutrition and Growth

In present day advance technologies are playing crucial role in most aspects of human life. Now extending its footsteps in one of the most treasured moment of any parent, birth of a child. A thought of building a complete child healthcare solution catering from the birth of a baby till it’s adolescent age powered by technology and big data came into existence when Oxyent Medical — a company run by Harpreet Singh and his wife Ravneet Kaur joined hands with Dr. Raghuram Mallaiah of Fortis La Femme Hospital in Delhi to combine their skills.

The interest of Harpreet Singh, a biomedical engineer with two advanced degrees in engineering from the University of Wisconsin, and Ravneet Kaur , post graduate in computer science stems into this solution from personal tragedy. He along with Mrs. Kaur lost one of their twins as babies were preterm, born in 26 weeks instead of normal 34-38 weeks. One of the children survived, the doctor said that the deceased infant — barely bigger than the palm of an adult — had succumbed to sepsis.

The on ground journey to formulate the solution started by conducting a new research to collect data from preterm infants, tracking their progress over the months of their stay in the neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) in Delhi hospitals. The approach to design the complete child healthcare solution leverages IOT, Cloud and Big Data technology, enhancing the doctor-parent engagement model by enabling continuous and personalized child health monitoring.

In this regard, the first product launched by company on 19th February’16 was iCHR – integrated Child Heath Record (iCHRCloud). iCHRCloud is India’s 1st Hospital linked solution - a revolutionary concept of automated vaccination record & scheduler, growth monitoring and prescription & lab investigations panel for the precious child. It provides the web portal for doctors and mobile application for parents, which enhances doctor-parent engagement. The adaptability of the solution allows it to be implemented across hospitals and clinics with minimal infrastructure investment.

Oxyent is looking to extend its solution offering by bringing iNICU - integrated Neonatal Intensive Care Unit in the market. iNICU a one stop workflow solution to assimilate and disseminate neonate information by connecting the generated source data from various devices. The application is designed to cater to all the responsibilities of various roles/owners (Nurse, Resident Doctor, Senior Doctor, Pediatrician and Administrator). It’s an effort to virtually eliminate human error in neonate health monitoring.

The combined solution package of iNICU and iCHR is a complete child healthcare solution which was envisioned by company during the inception of idea. What stands out this offering by Oxyent from others is it caters to both preterm & term babies from birth to adolescent age. Also, the first one to bring live data monitoring from anywhere, auto discharge summary and prediction of onset of infections, kind of advance technologies in the child healthcare segment. These advancements are unprecedented even in the international scenario, which provides the global platform to Indian IT Healthcare industry.

Company is also getting highly recognised in investor’s circle with seed funding raised from HNI investor, IIM Ahmedabad as accelerator via CIIE and IBM coming in as technology partner by providing cloud credits for IBM Cloud Solutions like Softlayer and Bluemix.

This high level of interest in solution from various stakeholders originates from the possibility to make a big difference in Indian child healthcare segment. India registering 27.06 million births annually including the highest number of preterm births at 3.5 million in the world. Even accounting for India’s high population, it’s still thrice that of China — the world’s most populous country — which has 1.1 million such births. Nearly a tenth of preterm children die due to complications and again, among 199 countries studied by ‘Save The Children’ foundation in 2012, India has the highest number of deaths. Even at early stage, considering only urban institutional births in India which accounts for 5.33Mn births annually including 1.11Mn preterm births presents a huge market for Oxyent to explore the opportunities.

Considering the varied Indian market dynamics, Oxyent is offering high flexibility in its solution in terms of features and costing. iCHR since its launch is offering flexible plan on per usage basis and even free trial period is provided which makes it highly acceptable in the market. This can be seen from number of institutions like Fortis La Femme, Jaypee hospital, Kalwati hospital, SCI hospital, Paras Bliss hospital and many top notch clinics in Delhi NCR already on board with many others institutions in regions like Karnataka, Gujarat, Jaipur, Chandigarh are in pipeline to deliver the service to parents.

iNICU leveraging on the market developed by iCHR is already fetching interest from market even when the product is in pilot stage. This levitate the credibility and need of the solution in market. iNICU is also offering dynamic pricing on per bed per day usage to suit the hospital needs.

Oxyent is constantly making masses aware of prevalent child healthcare problems and its solution by publishing blogs on http://www.ichrcloud.com/blogs/, engaging on social media platforms, and multiple press releases at constant intervals.

Currently Oxyent is aggressively working in Delhi NCR and now looking for expansion in other major geographies like Bangalore, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Jaipur, Ahmedabad as its witnessing huge demand from these areas. Even various state governments are showcasing interest to implement this solution in their respective government hospitals. In future Oxyent is also eyeing International markets like Germany, Dubai since this kind of advanced solution is unprecedented even in international scenario.
