Mumbai, Sep 4 - Reliance Foundation and the University of Chicago have collaborated to develop innovative technology that will help train medical students and clinicians for better diagnosis and improved healthcare, a statement said here Thursday.

The collaboration is also supporting doctors in real time with evidence-based clinical decision-making tools, it said.

The partnership will develop cloud-based software applications that can train medical professionals using case studies written by experienced physicians and state-of-the-art clinical reasoning methods, the statement said.

Provided through technology partners i-Human Patients, Inc and AgileMD, the software will help improve medical education and provide point-of-care clinical decision support tools for healthcare practitioners. These tools will help reduce diagnostic errors, improve outcomes and help save many lives, it added.

The programme will be piloted in Reliance Foundation's Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre here.

We are excited to collaborate with the University of Chicago, one of the leading universities, in transforming universal delivery of healthcare, said Jagannatha Kumar, chief executive officer, Reliance Foundation.

Through this collaboration, we look forward to bringing in a technology-based revolution in providing medical education and equipping healthcare professionals to achieve greater standards of excellence, he added.
