India has encountered a number of brilliant minds in the sphere of artificial intelligence industry. In the recent times, a large number of artificial intelligence and machine learning relying startups have emerged and have flourished and India is already among the top countries in the field of AI.
A lot of healthcare industries in India also need automation for various tasks and they are using AI to help them in their industry. Here is a list of Indian startups, in alphabetical order, leveraging the advantages of AI in the field of healthcare:
Started in 2005, this startup is focused on therapeutic applications of Regenerative Medicine, which is a branch of translational research in tissue engineering and molecular biology that deals with the replacing and regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. It delivers technologies for the safe and effective treatment options to patients all over the world at the highest medical standards.
Artelus stands for “artificial learning system” and was founded in the year 2017. This startup is focused on detecting diabetic retinopathy (DR) using deep learning algorithms. It captures the patient’s retina image, analyses it and presents a report out of it. It can be used to detect DR in less than a total of three minutes, which is way faster than humans. It is also striving to create early detection tools for TB, breast cancer and lung cancer with the help of its AI screening tool.
ChironX founder, Mausumi Acharyya, is an expert imaging an AI expert. Founded in 2017, ChironX (earlier known as Advenio Technosys) detects diseases from large populations of medical images. It has an autodiagnostic software which uses complex image processing AIalgorithms along with classical machine learning techniques. Their modules also use a lot of deep learning algorithms. Currently, it is working for retinal abnormality detections and acute respiratory infections. ChironX’s research activities are funded by the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC) and the Bill Melinda Gates Foundation and are being seed funded by KStart.
It is a Pune-based startup that provides diagnostics to customers through automation. This 2014 startup delivers reports to patients or organisations online as soon as they are available. It also offers online payment, monitors all patient activities in real time and enables doctors to access the patient data anytime. Doctors can also sign their patient reports with just one click. Their focus is maximum digitization and automation in providing medical diagnostics, due to which report entry errors are completely eliminated.
Founded in 2014, Lybrate is the country’s first online doctor consultation platform. In a fast-moving, busy world today, we hardly have time to go to a doctor physically for every minor health problem that we face. Often we end up ignoring some symptoms that seem minor to us but turn out to be serious, because of our over-occupied work lives. Lybrate has an online application via which patients can connect to doctors and have a consultation online. The patients can also book lab tests and appointments online.
6. NeuroSynaptic Communications Private Limited:
Their aim is to make health care accessible to all the masses through their startup. It provides a high-quality ReMeDi Remote Healthcare Delivery Solutions. It collects information on various physiological aspects of patients remotely and provides them with its diagnosis. By doing this, they make the whole process of diagnosis affordable. They currently operate in four cities with the main focus on healthcare delivery. The majority of their work has been in schools so far and also have an app-based tool for parents to plan nutritious meals for their children. Apart from this, they also offer annual health check-ups and health education. It was founded in 2002.
