A booster dose for women's health
Emerging technologies - a shot in the arm for improving women's health
Women’s health empowerment has long been on the Indian government’s radar. While there are various policies and programs in place, they lack cohesion to achieve the desired outcomes at scale. India continues to have one of the highest maternal mortality rates and poor female life expectancy worldwide. To bring about a sea change and truly empower women to take charge of their well-being, the need of the hour is an integrated health ecosystem powered by emerging technologies. Advanced technologies like AI, ML, blockchain and IoT can help create targeted programs—at speed and scale—to improve health outcomes for women through all their life stages. Accenture is already working with various government agencies and nonprofits and using intelligent solutions developed at Accenture Labs for the same. In this article, we present an action framework that could help the government ensure sustainability, scalability and affordability in delivering relevant health outcomes for women.
