Braveheart Brings Healthcare to India’s Last Mile Community

December 4, 2020

These days we can all use uplifting news, so please check out this short story about how BraveHeart technology is harnessing AI to bridge India’s healthcare divide. iKures, an Indian healthcare company, is equipping community workers in remote areas of the country with BraveHeart portable devices to measure blood pressure, hemoglobin levels, or heart rates during home visits to patients. Nearly 2.5 million people die every year in India of cardiovascular diseases, making it the leading cause of death. 

“This is a success story about how innovation can extend and save lives no matter where in the world you live,” said Kelvyn Cullimore, president and CEO of BioUtah. 

“We are proud to have teamed with iKure and IBM to enable more accessible healthcare,” added Ted McAleer, vice president of business development at BraveHeart. Our wearable device has Edge to Cloud machine learning capabilities and moves us one more step closer to affordable chronic disease management.”
