“The goal of these clinical AI tools is to predict different risks and stages of conditions and guide physicians and patients for better interventions,” Dr Kar explains. Apollo Hospitals has also developed multiple clinical AI-based solutions in areas including cardiology, respiratory health, liver disease, antibiotic stewardship, breast cancer, COVID-19 scanners and predictors and prediabetes. The hospital group provides tele-medicine consultation, teleradiology and a tele–ICU services network. It has also taken up various projects aimed at using technology for patient monitoring using IoT devices. 

“Apollo Hospitals is working relentlessly to bring forth the value of digital health and clinical AI for its patients, their families, physicians, healthcare workers and all stakeholders in multiple ways,” Dr Kar tells Healthcare It News. The value of digital health

Its efforts include the creation of Apollo 247, India’s only comprehensive digital health solution with 24-hour physician consultations, an online pharmacy with home delivery, online ordering for diagnostic tests and a secure personal health record system. Having previously served as medical director of Apollo Gleneagles Hospitals in Kolkata, his current roles are chief medical information officer (CMIO) and vice-president of the Apollo Hospitals group.

He believes it is essential to use patient reported outcomes to frame clinical pathways, algorithms and guidelines, therefore contributing to the triple aim of improving quality, reducing cost and increasing accessibility. Apollo Hospitals is also embracing emerging technologies through the use of wearable devices to monitor patient health and lifestyle, through addressing clinical complexities and decision support with the AI–ML algorithm developed from millions of patients’ data tracking their longitudinal care processes, and by using simplistic application programming interfaces (API) to integrate with organisations’ electronic medicals records (EMRs). “Emerging technology can provide easy and affordable health through digital platforms and condition management programs which help in adherence, appointments, alerts and access,” says Dr Kar.

Getting personal with emerging tech To deal with the ethical challenges associated with emerging technology, Apollo Hospitals have formulated a framework named EASE – ethics, adoption, suitability and explainability® to propagate practical approaches in clinical AI.
