Portable Health Clinic

A portable health clinic is a self-contained, mobile medical facility that can be transported to different locations to provide healthcare services to populations that may not have access to traditional medical facilities, such as those in rural or disaster-stricken areas. These clinics may be designed to offer a range of services, including primary care, dental care, diagnostic testing, and emergency medical treatment. Portable health clinics are often equipped with state-of-the-art medical equipment and staffed by trained medical professionals.

Visualization of Healthcare Data

Due to the ongoing digital transformation in healthcare, there is a shift towards digitizing healthcare data. However, digitalization alone is not sufficient for doctors to efficiently check patient history and make clinical decisions. Our research focuses on developing smart and efficient healthcare data visualization techniques to improve the performance of healthcare service delivery.

Personalization of Triage

Machine learning aids decision-making, but models are often opaque. Explainable AI aims to interpret 

models and identify factors influencing decisions. This study analyzes health checkup data from a digital healthcare system called Portable Health Clinic. The research argues for personalized triage using explainable AI.

NCD Risk Prediction

In recent years, the prevalence of diabetes worldwide has been increasing significantly, and it is estimated that the number of diabetes patients will rise to 783 million (with a prevalence rate of 12.2% among individuals aged 20-79) by the year 2045. Diabetes risks complications and has far-reaching implications for society, finance, and healthcare.

About SocialTech Lab

SDGs address economic and social challenges facing all countries. In developing nations, unproductive eco systems and unclean energy are detrimental to thriving livelihoods. In developed nations, the demographic changes – the ageing society – will place strain on social services.
