Reaching, Impact Saturation and Epidemic Control

The gaps in advanced medical care training were exposed by the Covid-19 pandemic. The Reaching, Impact Saturation and Epidemic Control (RISE) project addresses the gaps by developing a medical simulation platform with virtual patient cases for critical care, the first of its kind in India.

The project is funded by USAID and Jhpiego (Johns Hopkins University affiliate). This will be the first such virtual medical simulation platform in India. The project will be a joint effort between Amrita CREATE, School of Computing Amritapuri, School of Business Amritapuri, and School of Medicine Kochi.

Some of the highlights of the platform include:

  • Impact of VR technology in Critical Care
  • Accelerates learning curve by replicating real-life clinical emergencies
  • Fast tracks capacity building in trained health care providers to develop rapid skill development
  • Context-specific solutions that address competency-gaps in different roles (clinicians, nurses & technicians)
  • Identify appropriate and timely usage of existing facilities in critical care medicine
