Microsoft And Apollo Set-Up A National Clinical Coordination Committee

Microsoft India and Apollo Hospitals Group have partnered for setting-up National Clinical Coordination Committee(NCCC) to combat Cardiovascular diseases.

Recently, Microsoft and Apollo Hospitals Group set up a National Clinical Coordination Committee (NCCC). The committee is meant for the AI-powered Cardiovascular Disease Risk Score API and comprises of doctors and researchers from Apollo Hospitals, All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi and King George’s Medical University, Lucknow.
Earlier, in 2018, Apollo Hospitals and Microsoft India launched the first-ever AI-powered Cardiovascular Disease Risk Score API, which is designed to predict the risk of Cardiovascular Disease. The API is built on Microsoft Azure.
Microsoft said that more than 200,000 people have already been screened using the API. And in many instances, doctors predicted the risk score of patients 5 years in advance.
Joint Managing Director, Apollo Hospitals Group, Ms. Sangita Reddy, said, "The NCCC will help us immensely in our fight against the rising tsunami of Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs). We are also extending the scope of our partnership with Microsoft to meet the growing healthcare demands of people across the country and contribute more towards saving precious lives.”
