The Koita Centre for Digital Oncology (KCDO) is India’s first organisation dedicated to transforming cancer care in India using digital technology. KCDO is a joint initiative of the National Cancer Grid (an initiative of the Government of India and the Tata Memorial Centre) and the Koita Foundation (leading non-profit organisation focused on digital health adoption).
Cancer care is changing rapidly worldwide, and use of digital tools and technologies are playing a key role in driving this change – improving quality, access, and cost of care. Digital technologies are being used across the entire patient journey – screening, diagnostics, treatment, hospital care, home care and survivorship. It is imperative for India to have a strong focus on Digital Health to improve cancer care – make it more consistent, evidence based, accessible and affordable.
To help NCG and NCG hospitals leverage Digital Health technologies to meaningfully improve cancer care in India.
“The Koita Centre for Digital Oncology is a very timely initiative. It will help create an innovation ecosystem across hospitals, healthcare technology companies, academic institutions, and research organizations to address challenges in cancer care. The positive impact of this ecosystem can extend beyond cancer care,”
Director, Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai
“The Koita Centre for digital oncology will support 270+ hospitals treating patients with cancer across India in adopting digital health in a meaningful and affordable manner, positively impacting millions of patients with cancer. We are confident that this will launch several initiatives which will positively transform and impact the way we care for our patients.”
