NEW DELHI – Research university Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham and Wipro Limited, a global information technology company, jointly won the 2017 Aegis Graham Bell Award in February. They were recognized in the Innovation in mHealth category for their joint initiative, “Redefining Primary Comfort Using mHealth.” The two entities have developed a mobile health solution using a glucose monitoring system integrated with a cloud-based monitoring application for providing more efficient and effective diabetes care. “This award is a testimony to not just the novel, first-of-its kind diabetes management solution that has been developed, but also underscores the potential of what can be achieved in the health care sector through unique partnerships such as the one we have with Wipro,” said Dr. Bipin Nair, dean of the Amrita School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in a statement. The Wipro-Amrita Diabetes Management Solution will provide a cost-effective, non-enzymatic glucose sensing solution for diabetes care, while promoting a healthy diet and active lifestyle, said Nair. It will also enhance health screening and early diagnosis; contribute toward better adherence to drug and dietary regimen; and encourage diabetes self-care activities and help prevent complications. The Aegis Graham Bell Award is the largest innovation award for the ICT domain in India.
