Project Description

 

The company’s interventions in the medical field range from supporting institutions in performing cutting-edge research to enabling every section of society with information on better health practices. The company has assisted the Tata Translational Cancer Research Center at the Tata Medical Centre, Kolkata, in creating a better future for patients with cancer in India. The company’s aim is to develop personalized treatments, diagnostics, and monitoring tools for these patients. Since November 2016, the company has also been providing IT support to the National Oncology Digital Nerve Center. Key services include instant messaging support, telemedicine, and virtual follow-ups. TCS also provides a fully-integrated hospital management system free of cost to the Cancer Research Institute at Chennai.
The company has set up Digital Impact Square (DISQ), an open innovation center based out of Nashik to create social impact through the use of inclusive design and digital technologies. Here, young to-be graduates work in teams to tackle challenges across seven themes: health and hygiene; education and skills; financial and personal security; energy, water, and the environment; food and agriculture; housing and transportation; and citizen empowerment and transparency.
The company formed a taskforce to work with central and state governments and planned an end-to-end implementation that went well beyond building toilets. The program addressed several related issues, including: 
Water supply- Lack of water, and fears of diminishing the existing village supply, had to be addressed. In many cases the company arranged for bore-wells to be dug, sometimes to depths of 600-800 feet.
Waste disposal- It was critical to avoid groundwater contamination, so leach and soak pits had to be designed for local soil types and water tables.
Washbasin installation- Hand washbasins with running water had to be provided for each toilet.
Maintenance plan- The company engaged two maintenance partners across the selected states to ensure the toilets are cleaned daily and equipped with consumables like soap.
