Diya Health, an innovative Silicon Valley-based digital health firm, has partnered with U.S. cardiologists to provide care to patients with severe heart conditions in Himachal Pradesh, India. A highly specialized team of cardiologists will use the Diya Health platform to provide care to patients with myocardial infarctions, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, and other heart conditions.
“Having access to U.S. cardiologists through Diya will save the lives of severely ill patients, and it will help guide our primary care doctors how best to take care of the chronically ill in our communities,” said Dr. Rajesh Sood, District Program Officer at National Health Mission, Department of Health and Family Welfare, Government of Himachal Pradesh, India.
Diya Health’s platform collects and stores the entirety of a patient’s medical, family, and social history, and makes it accessible to care providers across the globe. This shareable health synopsis is complete, succinct, and safely protected by HIPAA- and GDPR-compliant software. The platform’s capabilities for telehealth, remote patient monitoring, and care coordination, will improve care for patients in the most remote parts of the world. Diya Health digitally will bring excellent care to patients’ doorsteps.
“Telehealth is the way of the future in cardiology and enables cardiologists to provide care to those who live in environments with poor access to specialist care,” said Dr. Sanjay Shah, a U.S. board-certified cardiologist and member of Diya Health’s Medical Advisory Board.
In this partnership, a rural health clinic, based in India, will simply upload a patient’s health record to Diya Health’s platform. Then, using the platform, the patient will email the health record to the U.S. cardiologist, who will view the patient’s complete chronological health history, including lab results, vital signs, and medications. The cardiologist will use Diya Health for patient messaging, telehealth visits, remote monitoring, and communication with physicians based in India.
“This is an important first step towards our mission of democratizing access to healthcare around the globe,” said Amit Bansal, CEO & Founder of Diya Health.
