To launch ‘Protean Clinic’, bringing specialist capabilities to general practice clinics
Protean (formerly NSDL e-Gov), India’s leading e-governance institution, launched its healthcare solution ‘Protean Clinic’, along with the dIAP programme of the Indian Academy of Pediatrics. The system will be offered to IAP’s 35,000 member paediatricians and subsequently to all other OPD clinics, enabling early diagnosis, specialised treatment, and superior patient engagement capabilities to prevent, diagnose, treat and manage diseases better, both in-clinic and at-home.
OPD clinics using the system will be certified and promoted in their locations as Protean-certified SMART clinics, offering specialised services with the highest privacy and security standards. Protean intends to connect the network to the National Digital Health Mission of the Government of India, solving the country’s lack of accurate and real-time epidemiology data, thus empowering healthcare policy and standards nationwide.
Protean Clinic enables doctors to engage with their patient community to maintain timely checks, detect red flags, intervene and diagnose early, and treat special conditions under specialist advice. The clinics will also offer specialised assessment, preventive, and management services for chronic diseases.
Protean aims to equip tens of thousands of local health workers with high-tech devices using its captive network of over 44,000 locations. This will enable OPD clinics nationwide to offer at-home services for assisted telemedicine (remote physical examinations), wellness visits, rapid diagnostics, measurement, and monitoring. Essentially, the platform will extend the Clinic’s services, beating boundaries and allowing the doctors to care beyond clinics.
