Bangalore: Healthcare IT products and solutions provider KTwo Technology Solutions is partnering with Karnataka-government owned Keonics (Karnataka State Electronics Development Corporation) to provide primary health care services in Bihar.

The consortium has won the National Rural Tele Medicine Ayush Network (NARTAN) and will set up telemedicine delivery system in 212 primary health centres, 38 district hospitals and a central unit at Patna. The consortium has won this project on a Build Own Operate and Transfer (BOOT) model for three years.

KTwo Technology with its flagship product Kshema (which means well being in Sanskrit) Unified Healthcare System would set up the primary and district health centres with a command and control centre in Patna to over steer the complete operation with video conferencing facilities.

“Kshema provides a solution through which a paramedic can record the patient’s problems, sufferings, vital parameters which are then transferred to a remote district or city health centre with a doctor. The doctor can prescribe medication to the patient remotely,” said Anant R Koppar, founder and CEO, KTwo Technology Solutions. [Source: BS]
