Introduction to the Smart Healthcare:

The interdisciplinary platform in Smart Healthcare was established in 2019 with a vision to Emerge as an Interdisciplinary platform achieving excellence in devising smart healthcare solutions for diagnostics, therapeutics, and remote healthcare through multidisciplinary research and teaching, bringing disruption in the conventional health care regime.

 The Smart Health Care IDRP aspires to create significant scientific and technological advancements in the area of Healthcare by bringing together a multidisciplinary team of scientists working in the interface of Biology, Chemistry, Healthcare & Engineering. The research is intended to focus on designing and developing sustainable solutions for point-of-care health devices, drug discovery, affordable diagnostics, bio-compatible implants, and remote health care, including telemedicine. The IDRP platform is expected to support the development of various eHealth and mHealth based solutions for improving the quality of healthcare and making it available to large segments of the society.

The major objectives of Smart Healthcare are:

  • Augmenting existing methods for medical research using machine learning and artificial intelligence based approaches.
  • Designing new and optimizing existing point-of-care health devices.
  • Identifying novel methods for early diagnosis and personalized therapeutics.
  • Creating a platform to use various electronic, mechanical, and biosensors for improving the remote health care facilities.
  • Implementing translational outcome oriented various academic and research programs such as Biodesign, Medical Technology (Masters, PhD, and Master-PhD Jointly with AIIMS), AI and Ayush, PhD in Smart healthcare, and UG minor in Smart Healthcare.
  • Establishing start-ups and supporting entrepreneurs in the domain of smart healthcare through Bionest, Biodesign, Med Tech Park, Jodhpur City Knowledge and Innovation cluster (JCKIC), and several similar platforms..
  •  Initiating a comprehensive research program to harvest the true potential of desert ecosystems.
