National Cancer Grid of India Opens a Digital Cancer Centre

The Koita Centre for Digital Oncology has been developed by the National Cancer Grid in India, a government-backed network of organisations dedicated to cancer treatment and research.

The centre intends to encourage the use of digital technology to improve cancer care across India, according to a press statement.

Koita foundation is a non-profit company that Rizwan and Rekha Koita started in 2017. NGO Transformation and Digital Health are the two main areas on which Koita Foundation focuses. It assists NGOs with tested operational approaches in scaling up successfully. We assist NGOs in digitally transforming their operations and maximising organisational performance and impact, which are crucial success elements for long-term development. Today, KF collaborates with more than a dozen NGOs in the fields of healthcare, education, and subsistence.

With the grantor of NCG, Tata Memorial Center, the non-profits Koita Foundation has signed an agreement to sponsor the newly founded centre for five years. The Koita Centre for Digital Health, which promotes academic initiatives, research, and business partnerships in the field of digital health, was also established with assistance from the Koita Foundation.

Over 2 million persons in India had cancer as of the year 2020. About 1.4 million Indians receive a cancer diagnosis every year, and more than 800,000 of them pass away from the disease. Digital tools are more essential in improving cancer care as cases rise each year.

According to the Department of Atomic Energy, which founded the NCG, the KCDO will aid in accelerating the digital transformation throughout India’s cancer care ecosystem.

According to Dr. Rajendra Badwe, director of the Tata Memorial Centre, it would assist in establishing an “innovation ecosystem” of hospitals, healthcare technology firms, academic institutions, and research organisations to address issues in cancer care.

The centre will support more than 250 NCG partner hospitals in adopting digital health tools, exchanging best practises in the field, and advancing shared technology projects like EMR adoption, healthcare data interchange, reporting, and analytics.

Additionally, the KCDO will make it possible for the NCG and its member universities to test and implement cutting-edge technologies including cloud computing, big data, AI, and machine learning. In turn, these technologies will fuel telemedicine and remote patient monitoring, increasing access to healthcare in semi-urban and rural areas.

The centre will promote the use of mobile patient engagement apps to help patients better manage their prescriptions and adhere to treatment standards, as well as AI-assisted clinical decision support technologies to improve clinicians’ capacity to offer care.

In order to evaluate clinical results and compare the efficacy of various treatment and care paths, it also intends to implement healthcare data analytics across hospitals. The KCDO will also look to collaborate with academic and research institutions to advance study and advancement in cancer treatment.

The KCDO might make it easier for the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, which is a “major national objective” for the Indian government, to be adopted more widely, according to Rizwan Koita, director of the Koita Foundation.

The ABDM is creating the digital routes that will link various healthcare stakeholders, laying the groundwork for India’s integrated digital health infrastructure.
