LifeSigns will deploy 24x7 AI-powered remote patient monitoring using a ‘hub & spoke model’, ensuring continuous data streaming to healthcare professionals. This includes continuous monitoring of patients at home, in ambulances, and in hospitals.

Healthtech provider LifeSigns said it is going to partner with leading hospitals to expand critical healthcare access to rural India. This initiative aims to provide timely and essential health services to underserved areas and reduce preventable mortality rates.

As per the initiative, LifeSigns will deploy their AI-powered 24x7 remote patient monitoring technology using a ‘hub & spoke model’. This ensures continuous streaming of patient data to doctors and healthcare professionals, even when the patient is at home, in the ambulance, or at the hospital.

Reportedly, LifeSigns is partnering with Apollo BGS to provide AI monitoring technology to Mysore and nearby villages. Additionally, emergency centres will be set up in the villages, connecting them to the central hub at Apollo Mysore, ensuring timely access to emergency care for patients.

Apollo BGS in Mysore is set to be Karnataka's first hospital, and one of the nation's few, to launch a 5G+ smart ambulance in collaboration with LifeSigns. This 5G ambulance features real-time connectivity, advanced technology, and comprehensive medical facilities. It's designed to monitor critical care patients and can transform into a smart clinic at remote locations.

While the names of other collaborators remain undisclosed, it's noteworthy that LifeSigns has previously partnered with Amala Hospital and Kauvery Hospital to expand their critical healthcare access to rural areas.

Sharing his views, Hari Subramaniam, founder & CEO, LifeSigns, said, “Through this comprehensive digital transformation initiative, we aim to bridge the gap between urban and rural healthcare, ensure real-time patient monitoring, and offer seamless connected care in ambulances, in hospitals and at home. This is a significant step towards our vision of a healthier and happier India.”

Founded in 2019 by Girish Chandra, Hari Subramaniam and Shouri Akkineni, the Chennai-based startup offers a cloud-based wireless digital patient monitoring solution for healthcare providers.

The startup’s technology solution is powered by an advanced alert algorithm that ensures effective functionality even in the most remote corners of India, without missing the heartbeat of a patient. Going ahead, LifeSigns aims to make healthcare more accessible and affordable for everyone in India and beyond.

A similar initiative has been adopted by MediBuddy which collaborated with Satin Creditcare Network to bridge the healthcare gap and provide enhanced healthcare solutions to millions who encounter challenges accessing quality healthcare services.
