An AI-enabled tool can help treat newly-diagnosed patients to estimate the risk of complications.

What’s it about? A new tool called DIANA (DIAbetes Novel subgroup Assessment) is a part of the AI-enabled digital innovations of Dr Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre.

  • It allows doctors to find out the risk of complications in diabetes patients. Based on this, they can be classified as insulin-resistant or insulin-deficient.
  • They can then be given custom treatment. The initiative is part of bringing in digital innovations based on the hospital’s experience during the pandemic as it faced challenges catering to patients’ needs.

Other innovations: The hospital also has two apps called Dia and Diala. These are for patients, unlike Diana, which is for doctors. Dia is a chatbot that offers information about diabetes, medicines, and diet. It helps patients schedule appointments and lab tests. Diala tracks weight, step count, and diet plans. They’re available on Android and will soon be launched on iOS.
