Working with Global Health Technology

Global Health Technology had developed an alert system for elderly and bedridden people which let them summon help 24/7 using a wristband or pendant.
But the system met with a number of challenges. For instance, the manual onboarding of a patient would take almost 15 days to integrate a new customer. Also, there was no information on device analytics to track the number of active participants and several other issues that directly affected the customer.
Knoldus to rescue
Knoldus worked along with the company to understand its problems and decided to digitize their existing stack and help them provide better customer experience.
The onboarding and registration process was automated and the lead time for integrating a customer came down from 15 days to 2 minutes. They also provided an option that let aging citizens to easily adapt to the device (pendant) and get insights into their health. Knoldus also managed to create medical profiles and maintain it with live tracking of the aging person's well-being.
