Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd. Earns 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired Recognition

Apollo CHIME Digital Health Certified

CHENNAI, INDIA / ANN ARBOR, MI, October 6, 2020  The College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) is pleased to announce that Apollo Hospitals Enterprise Ltd. has earned 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition as a certified level 8. The CHIME Digital Health Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities.

“Digital technology has been a driver of innovation in healthcare for many years now, but never to the degree that we saw in 2020 with the pandemic,” said CHIME President and CEO Russell P. Branzell. “The Digital Health Most Wired program underscores why healthcare organizations keep pushing themselves to be digital leaders and shows what amazing feats they can achieve. This certification recognizes their exemplary performance in 2020.

Dr. Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group said, “Digital technologies have the potential to radically improve healthcare delivery. Technology can add value to every moment the patient spends in the system, putting the patient on a faster course towards effective treatment. While the use of AI along with Big Data can guide physicians in reaching a diagnosis or arriving at the best treatment method, it can also be a game changer in preventive healthcare. This in turn leads to optimisation of healthcare resources with reduced cost of healthcare. The 2020 CHIME Digital Health Most Wired recognition as a certified level 8 is a recognition of our efforts to harness digital technology to enhance access to care for patients and streamline their experience with improved outcomes. Technology enabled us to ensure continuity of care through the pandemic through telemedicine and remote healthcare and we share continue to use technology to transform every point of interaction with the patient and community.”

A total of 30,135 organizations were represented in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program, which this year included four separate surveys: domestic, ambulatory, long-term care and international. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry leading.

Each participating organization received a customized benchmarking report, an overall score and scores for individual levels in eight segments: infrastructure; security; business/disaster recovery; administrative/supply chain; analytics/data management; interoperability/population health; patient engagement; and clinical quality/safety. Participants can use the report and scores to identify strengths

and opportunities for improvement. Participants also received certification based on their overall performance, with level 10 being the highest.

This is the third year that CHIME has conducted the survey and overseen the program. In each successive year, CHIME has expanded the survey to capture more types of organizations that serve patients across the continuum of care. CHIME also continues to promote the program internationally to provide a global overview of digital health advancements.

As in past years, CHIME will publish an industry trends report based on Digital Health Most Wired responses from U.S. participants. The 2020 National Trends Report is scheduled to be released in November during CHIME20 Digital.

Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group.

The AI-powered Cardiovascular Disease Risk Score API is an Intelligent Platform that can predict cardiovascular disease risk score in the Indian population. With over 2,00,000 people screened using the AI-driven API on Microsoft Azure across Apollo Hospitals over the last one year, the platform has been successful in allowing physicians to predict the risk score of patients 5 to 7 years in advance. With the national launch of the platform, doctors across the Apollo network of hospitals as well as doctors in other leading Indian hospitals will be able to access and leverage this AI-powered API to predict risk of CVD and drive preventive cardiac care in patients across the country.

The occasion also saw the national launch of preview of AI CVD Risk Score developed in joint collaboration by Apollo Hospitals and Microsoft India. As part of Microsoft’s AI Network for Healthcare initiative, Microsoft India and Apollo Hospitals Group have set up a National Clinical Coordination Committee (NCCC) for the Cardiovascular Disease Risk Score, consisting of leading doctors from Apollo Hospitals; All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi; and King George’s Medical University, Lucknow.

Dr. Prathap C Reddy, Chairman, Apollo Hospitals Group said, “It has always been our vision to bring the best of world-class healthcare for the benefits of patients in India, and over the decades we have successfully been at the forefront of ensuring healthcare that is comparable to the best globally for our patients. At the same time, it is important to build a model of global collaboration with a platform where healthcare stakeholders from all over the world can come together for healthy dialogue and discussions, share best practices and exchange ideas and experiences. The International Health Dialogue is such a platform and we look forward to more such conferences in the future to ensure that we are prepared for the changing face of disease with the rising ‘tsunami’ of non-communicable diseases or NCDs. With modern technology and AI taking center place, we need to keep abreast of the latest developments and ways to harness it for delivering the best of healthcare services to the patients. At the same time, we must not lose sight of the patient safety, which is an important factor affecting healthcare outcomes. I am thankful for the Government of Telangana for their support in this important mission.”

Ms. Preetha Reddy, Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals Group, said “Our team and collaborators have been working endlessly in the last couple of months on bringing this massive event to fruition and we are proud to host it for not just our national delegates but those from abroad as well. The International Patient Safety Conference will serve as a platform where all stakeholders can share experiences, exchange ideas, and discuss best practices for improving patient safety, which comprises a vital aspect of healthcare delivery. We look forward to an outcome where the suggestions generated are integrated into a national policy to improve patient safety across the healthcare system.”

Adding insights on THIT, Dr. Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group, said, “The conference will showcase AI in Healthcare, Machine Learning in Medical Imaging, Enterprise Digital Health Solutions, Digital Health in Health Delivery Organizations Standards and Policies for Digital Health in India from national and international healthcare technological luminaries. The conference is a platform where healthcare and information technology entrepreneurs, professionals, and students will get insights into how medical technology and innovation is disrupting the healthcare industry, and the need to keep pace with this transformation. We hope that the conference will lead to an understanding of the need to invest in and adopt new technologies for cost-effective health outcomes that are beneficial to all stakeholders in the Indian healthcare industry”
