ThalCare is a web based information management and treatment assistance, telemedicine and networking tool to provide the critical care and management necessary for the well being of individuals suffering from blood disorders. ThalCare enables end to end disease management of thalassemia by organizing the vast amount of medical data associated with chronic disease management. The tool tracks transfusions, chelation, lab investigations, family support, complication management, vaccination, growth and other relevant issues.
ThalSense is an in-built intelligence engine which processes the data to generate alerts, suggestions and indications for proper management of disease as per international guidelines for the local doctors. It is single point of storage of all information related to these patients and generates reports and indicators on the progress and treatment of each child and the centre as a whole.
The tool is designed to assist the medical and nursing teams involved in thalassemia management to deliver state of the art care by streamlining processes. Using ThalCare enables the centers to collaborate with multidisciplinary experts on-line.
ThalCare also integrates with mobile based applications for the patients which engage, inform and empower patients. The adherence to treatment protocols, access to relevant medical records, seeking help in emergency, scheduling visits with doctors, networking with other individuals suffering from the same disease condition is all enabled through the patient's mobile application.
Beside management of thalassemia, the tool also enables prevention of the disorder by cascade screening methodology. On the curative side, the system also automatically assesses the risk category for transplants that the child belongs to and indicates suitability for BMT.
