Health-tech startup DayToDay Health, which provides digital first care management services to patients to guide, help and assist them through pre and post-surgery care, launched its digital healthcare platform for Smiles Institute of Coloproctology, Bengaluru.
The digital healthcare platform is customized to give patients with colorectal conditions a guided and anxiety-free treatment experience covering the entire continuum of care.
DayToDay Health, an MIT startup launched in 2018, has been playing a significant role in improving the level of care for patients across specialties. Through its digital healthcare platform, it educates and enables patients’ caregivers like family members, to understand and address the needs of patients more effectively.
The digital healthcare platform also opens a vital window to the doctors with its analytical dashboard wherein the doctor can track and monitor patient’s progress daily. The dashboard collates vital information like daily stats and enables the doctors to connect with the patient virtually over a video or voice call.
“Patients and caregivers need high-quality healthcare, before and after a major once-in-a-lifetime procedure so that they can recover completely. At DayToDay Health, we have used smart technology- enabled service to overcome this barrier by devising step-by-step, personalised care journeys for caregivers to guide their patients throughout the treatment process. We use a digital healthcare platform – which is HIPAA and GDPR compliant – to allow patients a seamless delivery of healthcare that also includes mental health care and counseling apart from physical health,” said Prem Sharma, CEO, DayToDay Health.
Smiles Institute of Coloproctology, Bengaluru specializes in diagnosing and treating all types of colorectal conditions including those that require invasive diagnostic procedures as well as surgical intervention.
“Treating serious colorectal conditions is often a complex process and surgical intervention may require proper planning and post-operative care. While patients may be required to stay at the hospital for a week or more, the recovery stretches to several weeks. Patients not only need guidance and help in preparing for the surgery and adopting the right post-operative care, they also need psychological help and mental counseling to deal with the impact of major surgery,” said Dr. Parameshwara C M, CEO & founder, Smiles Institute of Coloproctology, Bengaluru.
“DayToDay Health is already offering its digital healthcare platform to hospitals across the world with its services most widely being used in the US, the UK, and India. The program also helps prevent care plan disruptions due to non-compliance by providing continuous patient guidance and allows for rapidly addressing any emergent patient needs via regular status updates and symptom trends monitoring,” said Rajiv Misra, president, Asia Pacific, DayToDay Health.
