Karkinos is a strong advocate of prevention and screening culture in cancer-care management in India, disrupting the treatment driven healthcare system, using AI enabled digital applications, multilingual patient navigation systems and use of innovative point of care devices. Through an innovative, digitally-led care model, Karkinos takes every woman on a guided and safe journey, right from the first screening test to offering multiple options of diagnostics, treatment planning and management using a virtual tumour board and post treatment care. Karkinos Healthcare aims to build a cancer-care ecosystem where almost no person is deprived of care either by lack of access or affordability. Early detection is the key to successful cancer management, lower costs and improved survival rates.
Statistics show that 9 out of 10 people survive when treated for early stage breast cancer, cervical cancer, bowel cancer & oral cancer. Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women. India shows a very high death rate in this type of cancer with one loss of life in every eight minutes. These are very alarming numbers, especially when India is at the peak of its digital advancements. This can be changed though – by identifying the care gap.
Karkinos Healthcare’s Focus Areas:
• Eliminate breast cancer, cervical cancer and other common form of cancers
• Reduce the gap in existing cancer care models through digital & technological intervention
• Advocate prevention & strong screening culture in handling rising cancer deaths, especially for women through its distributed digital network
