Dell EMC has partnered with the Government of Andhra Pradesh to deliver cloud and data analytics solutions in healthcare. For EMC (now part of Dell EMC) this is the second engagement with the state of Andhra Pradesh.
Mahila Master Health Checkup (MMHC), a health care program for the women of Andhra Pradesh, was inaugurated by the Honorable Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh, Mr. Chandrababu Naidu, at a ceremony held on 20th September 2016.
MMHC program will be used to screen women above the age of 35 for NCD (Non Communicable Diseases). According to the WHO, NCDs account for 60% of the total deaths in India. Heart disease, cancer, diabetes and respiratory diseases are fast overtaking infectious diseases and malnutrition which were the main disease burden. In this context of rapidly growing lifestyle diseases, a shift from curative to preventive care is being recommended.
