mTatva’s SimboAlpha wins NASSCOM CoE’s Healthcare Innovation Challenge for Prescription Digitisation
Designed with patent pending technology, SimboAlpha enables doctors to create voice based EMRs in less than 30 seconds
mTatva’s Simbo.ai, a pioneer in explainable Artificial Intelligence (AI) has won NASSCOM CoE’s healthcare vertical Healthcare Innovation Challenge (HIC) for Prescription Digitisation.
Through Healthcare Innovation Challenge (HIC), NASSCOM CoE aimed to focus on creating a competitive edge and operational excellence for the hospitals by enabling collaborative and frugal innovation. This initiative enabled hospitals to nominate use cases relevant to them, which was then followed by curation and evaluation of technology-led innovative solutions and enable their deployment to address the nominated use cases. HIC reportedly received 125 applications from various healthcare start-ups across the country with solutions to the problems in six specific areas shared by the participants’ hospitals.
mTatva’s Simbo.ai emerged as the winner of prescription digitisation. As per a company release, SimboAlpha is a cloud-based API (Application Programming Interface) technology platform. It allows Electronic Medical Record (EMR) providers, health app providers and hospital chains to bring smart voice-based EMR to their doctors. SimboAlpha is based on Artificial Neural Networks and is trained on 10 million+ recordings, it supports native and all Indian English accents. Trained on International and Indian clinical terms, SimboAlpha’s prescription digitisation is highly accurate even in noisy environments, with 2.58 per cent Word Error Rate (WER) and 3.16 per cent Sentence Error Rate. It is available as a cloud-based API so that it can plug-in into any existing Healthcare Information System (HIS) or EMR software system.
Explaining the relevance of the technology, Baljit Singh, CEO and Co-founder, mTatva said, “SimboAlpha is the most transformative technology to be launched till date for EMR and healthcare providers in India. This will enable the healthcare stakeholders to disrupt the way clinicians approach documentation.”
