The Koita Centre for Digital Health (KCDH) set up at IIT Bombay, is the first of its kind in India, focused on driving academic programs, research, and industry collaborations in Digital Health.
Improving the quality, accessibility, and affordability of healthcare is one of the world’s biggest priorities. Digital Health has a profound impact on the quality of care and efficiency of healthcare delivery. Consequently, there is substantial focus globally on enhancing Digital Health and Informatics. In India too, the launch of the National Digital Health Mission (NDHM) in 2020 is driving Digital Health adoption at a national scale.More
The centre will enable an ecosystem that can help address the healthcare challenges that have been so glaringly exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Digital Health and Informatics need cross-functional expertise. At KCDH, we hope to enable seamless cross-functionality across these streams. This new initiative opens up exciting opportunities for our graduates, including spearheading research, launching startups, and much more.
KCDH is establishing partnerships with healthcare organizations (Digital Health Partners) to foster research and innovation in digital health, and access clinical expertise and data. These DHP partnerships are critical for KCDH to create rich research and academic opportunities in Digital Health.Partnership opportunities for:
