Nowadays, Thyroid diseases are common worldwide and there has been a significant burden of thyroid diseases in India. According to a projection from various studies on thyroid disease, it has been estimated that about 42 million people in India suffer from thyroid diseases. According to statistics and research by NCBI (National Centre of Biotechnology Information), thyroid disorders are on the rise in India. Approximately 1 in 10 Indian adults suffer from hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones to meet the needs of the body. This condition is twice as prevalent in women as in men and is common among women of child-bearing age.
Thyroid symptoms are silent and generally ignored by people. Indian men and especially women are 3 times more prone to the thyroid.
The opportunity arises here as to how to educate people around the thyroid and its cure while they wait for their turn. Technology advancement in the pharma and healthcare sector enables people to learn and understand the deficiencies and symptoms of the Thyroid.
Indigital Technologies, a research-based digital healthcare technology company with 3 provisional patents on its name has introduced a solution through a campaign named as ‘WiFi Thyroid Clinics’ in association with Thyronorm. The technology enables the patients and their family members to learn and understand about the Thyroid syndromes while waiting for their turn in doctor’s chambers converted into awareness-building time using the internet less WiFi technology.
“We introduced this technology to spread awareness and educate people around the deficiencies and syndromes of Thyroid along with Abbott. We want people to learn the vital issues and available solutions regarding their treatment. As a brand we are focused to serve the society with best possible technology in the pharma and health sector. While partnering with Abbott, we converted 252 endocrinologist’s clinics into WiFi Thyroid Clinics with the help of our patented product Kanopi. This initiative was recognised as the most valuable patient initiative at EyeforPharma award 2017, one of the most prestigious awards in healthcare”, says Mr. Hiren Dhuvad, Chief Executive Officer, Indigital Technologies.
