Software giant Wipro and Kerala-located Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham have jointly won the Aegis Graham Bell Award 2017 in the ‘Innovation in mHealth’ category.
They were recognized for their joint initiative - ‘Redefining primary comfort using mHealth’ at the eighth edition of the Aegis Graham Bell Awards. The awards honor innovation in the ICT domain in India.

The Aegis Graham Bell Awards (AGBA) recognize organizations that have made a significant contribution to promoting innovation and entrepreneurship in the fields of telecom, social, mobility, analytics and cloud.

The Amrita School of Biotechnology, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, in collaboration with Wipro has developed a mobile health solution using a novel glucose monitoring system integrated with a cloud-based monitoring application for providing more efficient and effective diabetes care. The initiative was supported by Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC), Government of India.

The jointly-developed Wipro-Amrita Diabetes Management Solution will provide a cost-effective, non-enzymatic glucose sensing solution for diabetes care, while promoting a healthy diet and active lifestyle, which are vital to manage diabetes.
The solution can also enhance health screening and early diagnosis, contribute towards better adherence to drug and dietary regimen, encourage diabetes self-care activities and help prevent complications in patients with diabetes.
This end-to-end diabetes management solution requires a robust digital backbone and is based on proven algorithms that leverage the expertise of Wipro Digital.
