“The system is very easy to learn and use. It should significantly improve the management of patients suffering from Tuberculosis”

Doctor Solanki

Kinect Proof of Concept, Masina Hospital

Masina Hospital is a 270 bed facility, run on a not for profit basis. It is located in South Mumbai providing clinical services with covering all areas of General Medicine.

It is located at Sant Savata Mali Marg, Byculla East, Mazgaon, Mumbai, Maharashtra 400027, India.

The pilot has been established to field test Kinect Human and Kinect. Now, two modules of the Kinect blockchain enabled health management solution

Kinect Human is a cloud based medical record system that incorporates local medical practices and provides a simple to learn method of capturing patient consultations, history, symptoms tests, diagnosis, medicines and outcomes. It has a single view of the patient, based on a unique patient identifier, that allows both pharmacy and laboratory to access and update relevant parts of the patient record.

Kinect Now is a behaviour change module that automatically monitors and rewards doctor and patient behaviour, when a doctor achieves predefined goals( for example completing a certain number of TB tests) , they are rewarded with Kinect tokens. When
a patient with TB fulfils their prescription and completes a course of medication they are rewarded.

Kinect foresees that a system that can drive improved patient compliance, could help address the emerging challenge of Multi Drug Resistant TB (MDR-TB) , which is a serious and rapidly emerging, resulting from patients not completing their medication health issue.

 

This is small scale study of between 2-3 doctors and 50 -100 patients over a four -month period commencing December 17 . The launch meeting involved training local physicians on the Kinect system and ensuring the data capture options were consistent with local practices. Data is being be collected using android tablets connected via wifi to the internet and
blockchain.

Goals of the pilot

1. To demonstrate the system can be implemented successfully in a previously paper based environment.

2. Test the effectiveness of Kinect Now to monitor and reward patients and doctors based on goals that are achieved.

3. Demonstrate the ability of Kinect Human to collect accurate patient data using a cloud-based system

4. Define areas for improvement

Masina hospital and participating patients will have overall ownership of the data gathered.
Kinect Corporation will have rights to access and use the deidentified data for a period of 2 years for the purpose of promotion and ongoing quality control.

Interim results

Feedback obtained from doctors during the pilot, has been was very positive. The software has been described as intuitive and the workflow mimics local treatment practices. The use of drop-down boxes and radio buttons minimised the need for typing copious notes, reducing the burden on doctors and allowing them more time with the patient.

The doctors also recognised that the software was easily customisable and able to reflect local medical diagnosis and treatment practises.

To date more than 30 patient records have been captured and de identified data extracted for review.
