Swedish-Indian HealthTech firm VBRI has launched the first field trial of a virtual hospital concept, which it is hoped will provide more than 500 cardiac consultations in 90 days.

VBRI said its mHospitals, which use advanced technologies like cloud medicine, machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), will go live in four different centers in China, India and Sweden.

The company said the platform will initially perform the role of a virtual cardiac platform that will serve patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases, with a view to further services in more countries as the concept develops.

The mHospital is intended to provide a digital solution to the challenge of access to secure healthcare in remote locations by connecting patients to Internet of Things (IoT) cloud medicine, machine learning and AI and connect it to smart wearable healthcare devices.

Yogesh Shukla, director of the mHospital, said: “The platform has gone through an extensive range of field trials and the results have been successful.

“So far, we have provided consultancy to patients and also started performing surgeries. With the wide network of world class doctors and specialists, mHospitals, after the completion of field trials, will be ready to provide extensive cardiac care to patients.”
