Empowering community healthcare system

Sujay Santra is the founder of iKure which is working to create a technologically integrated network of rural health centers and provide affordable quality healthcare in close proximity to rural underserved populations of India.

The company has established Rural Health Centers (RHCs) in the states of West Bengal and Orissa that are armed with doctors available seven days a week, pharmacists dispensing only accredited medicines, and health officers recording data for all activity at the centers.

The iKure team has developed a patent-pending software platform called Wireless Health Incident Monitoring System (WHIMS).The WHIM system brings benefits such as better optimization of doctors, which is  very scarce in rural areas, usage of technology to help patients & their cases to be made available to specialists at tertiary hospitals in the cities, help pharmacy companies with data for inventory management & molecular research and help the government with critical data to help plan various health programs for better results.

Aware  of the fact that as a health care specialist organization who are new entrants in the community, it would not be efficient for iKure to implement the holistic healthcare solution they have arrived at through their knowledge partners, Sujay partners with local NGOs and businesses, who already have relationships with the community to implement.

Sujay's work has spread across four states in India, impacting the lives of 135,000 people, with 6 Indian and international Academic partners, hospital chain parnters with over 250 branches and more than 20 private company partners. By 2020 Sujay will scale to 300 clinics, which will allow him to develop a body of evidence based evaluation that substantiates that their holistic healthcare model that attacks the root cause of health problems in communities is the most effective health care paradigm.

In 2013, iKure was awarded with Indian STEPs & Business Incubators' Association (ISBA) Jury Award, a special recognition from the Jury to the innovativeness.
