Cloud Lab Testing Platform
Large scale testing is going to be key to contain COVID-19. But tracking testing & ensuring compliance for 100s of labs across the country is very hard. CrelioHealth has been doing exactly that with 1500+ labs across India.
This is the start for COVID-19 pandemic, at the peak of the curve India will be doing thousands of tests daily. In such a case, we will need very capable tech infrastructure while enabling real-time decision making by giving us better control over information flow.
Testing guidanceTesting for COVID-19 RT-PCR is not routine for labs, they need guidance.
Reporting of results to ICMR is a burden, automated or bulk reporting is not available.
Mobile Reporting is not available everywhere. Technology can help scale testing via Booths.
What we really need is a simplified way of scaling up testing using existing infrastructure of available 300,000 labs in the country.
More Labs should and will be needed to test across different parts of the country.
Interoperable Information Systems, integrated with helplines, hospitals & govt. platforms.
Mobile testing & reporting capabilities for testing at booths, at home collections.
Finally a prediction engine on top which can predict outbreaks by pin-code.
Lab Information System that lets you start testing COVID-19 samples in minutes
Getting labs started with the workflows for testing is key. They would need different sample types & vacutainers than usual, report templates with WHO & ICMR guidelines, integrate with instruments to capture results automatically, ability to capture patient history every time a healthcare worker interacts with a patient and finally report all cases to ICMR & Govt authorities with ease or ideally automatically. A need for an integrated technology solution cannot be ignored, with so much market fragmentation, and untrained staff it's almost impossible to ensure accurate reporting at scale and on time.
