Eris Lifesciences and PlexusMD come up with ‘Saarthi’
An AI-powered online learning platform, 'Saarthi' will help doctors in their evidence-based practice
Eris Lifesciences and PlexusMD have partnered for a unique artificial intelligence (AI)-powered learning platform named Saarthi. Through this endeavour, the companies aim to enable Indian physicians stay connected with global developments and practise evidence-based medicine to improve patient health outcomes. AI-powered technology and machine learning can help tailor the content and adapt the pace of delivery to each practising physician’s unique learning needs to apply the insights more effectively in their practice.
This app-based platform will be a one-stop destination to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME), medical content, medico-legal precedents, medical conference feeds, case discussions, etc. for physicians. Saarthi is an interactive, innovative and relevant platform to simplify learning for doctors, who continuously face time-constraints in their attempt to keep abreast with latest developments in the medical field.
With an AI-powered technology, Saarthi will help doctors in their evidence-based practice as each patient case can be unique. A distinctive feature of the app is a calculator that will help doctors quickly arrive at the right dosages, drug combinations and diagnostic criteria for commonly-encountered situations.
Highlighting the need for such an offering, Dr Viraj Suvarna, President — Medical, Eris Lifesciences, said, “This is a collaboration between two exciting pioneers, one from the pharmaceutical space and the other from technology. This partnership is a step forward in a domain that requires deep learning but where time constraints become a major deterrent for doctors”.
Elaborating on the partnership, Dr Rohan Desai, Founder, PlexusMD, said, “E-learning is the reality in every domain, including medicine. Saarthi is a unique platform where an AI-powered engine will deliver precise and customised content to the enrolled doctors depending on their interests and learning requirements. The app will address two critical issues time –information overload and fake news – to ensure doctors are provided with information relevant to them.”
“Technology has made learning an enjoyable experience. The traditional learning that doctors were exposed to during their graduation and post-graduation days can now be made exciting with the use of technology. Doctors can learn from case studies using virtual and augmented reality”.
While Eris Lifesciences is focused on filling up the gaps in patient care: diagnostics, therapeutics and patient compliance, PlexusMD is centered on professional growth of doctors.
