Impel Care is a joint product of PK4 Software Technologies and Care Foundation – it aims at addressing health issues at the bottom of the pyramid in India with the use of extensive technology. CARE foundation and Impel Care have initiated a bold initiative to implement technological advancement in health issues and micro insurance in the rural parts of India. With the use of a hand held device and an inbuilt application based on tele-medicine and micro insurance rural healthcare delivery is ensured. The hand held device is operated by trained Village Health Champions (VHCs) who track patient info, provide primary healthcare, record vital statistics and deliver health-related products. The built-in Clinical Decision Support System delivers appropriate medical advice, prescriptions and, where it cannot, direction to invoke tele-medicine. The VHC can interact with a remote CARE doctor who can recommend treatment through an SMS prescription.
