Project Description

Shruti is a program that aims to expand access to quality ear-care for underserved patients, families and communities in India and Bangladesh.  Nearly 75M people in India (~6% of the population) are estimated to have a hearing disability, but it has been noted by the WHO that about 80% of all deafness can be said to be avoidable. Shruti addresses this gap by creating awareness, diagnosis and treatment of chronic ear disease through our teleotology screening Product “Entraview” and its telemedicine Application – “Shruti App”.
These components come together in a four-step process: First, trained community health workers (CHWs) conduct door-to-door screening of patients in peri-urban slum areas at no cost using the ENTraview device. Then, the hardware & software enable remote diagnosis so CHWs offer initial diagnosis and refer to nearby Shruti ENT doctor partners as needed. Patients’ care is then managed ENT partner sites, where the electronic patient record is easily accessed and finally treatment options are provided at a discount.
