Child Health Imprints (CHIL) raises $2.3 million in pre-series A funding

first_img Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025 Child Health Imprints (CHIL) has announced that it has raised $2.4 million in pre-series A funding. The round was led by HealthXCapital, with participation from Enterprise SG and other HNIs. According to the 2018 World Health Organisation’s report, nearly 15 million infants are born preterm annually, of which close to one million die due to pre-term birth-related complications. More than 60 per cent of pre-term births take place in Asia and Africa. Prematurity, infections, delay in treatment, skilled manpower shortage and human-based errors are the major causes of neonatal deaths. Better data integration amongst multiple devices (patient monitor, ventilator, blood gas machines, infusion pumps) and ElectroMagnetic Resonance adoption in NICU, along with unified neonatal workflow practices need to be urgently adopted to tackle the rising neonatal births across the world.CHIL is one of the rare technology companies which is committed to improving clinical outcomes in Neonatal ICUs using IoT and digitisation. It also has significant potential to enable remote real-time management of NICUs located far out especially in emerging Asia, which are facing specialised skill shortages. CHIL develops and applies informational and computational technologies including IoT, AI, and predictive analysis; to improve early diagnosis of critical diseases, and overall quality of neonatal intensive care units across the world. The solution aggregates and integrates neonate’s vital data, bedside clinical observations and laboratory results, leverages deep learning methodologies to analyse the data in medically comprehensive formats and is available to clinicians for improvised decision making.“Our aim is to improve neonatal safety across countries with high neonatal mortality rate. The company will also develop inroads into more advanced neonatal ecosystems to bring their best clinical practices to other markets across the world,” said Harpreet Singh, CEO, CHIL.The startup is set for further expansion in India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, Gulf Cooperation Council and the ASEAN region shortly. CHIL enables command center console to manage satellite NICU in hub and spoke models enabling specialised neonatal care to reach the remotest parts of these countries. It focuses on the improvement of quality indicators i.e. antibiotic usage in NICU, average length of stay, ventilator usage to improvise the clinical care practices across NICU. It further facilitates data collaboration across NICU through standardised data dictionary and adherence to clinical guidelines i.e. ESPGHAN, LEXICOMP and Neofax.Seemant Jauhari, Managing Partner of HealthXCapital, said, “HealthXCapital is proud to be a part of an exciting journey which shall enable a new model for neonatal care to be offered remotely by the best available neonatologists present in cities to multiple paediatric clinics located in distant areas. The clinical decision support and predictive analytics based on real-time data showcases the power of digital health disrupting traditional models of care delivery,” and Ted Tan, Deputy CEO, Enterprise Singapore, praised Child Health Imprint’s progress to date, saying, “CHIL is rapidly becoming one of the most crucial and significant technology platforms in Asia.” On its journey to evolve NICUs in Asia, CHIL has gathered several accolades. CHIL’s iNICU platform was amongst the top five finalists in K-Startup Grand Challenge in 2017 from top 50 innovations selected by the South Korean Government. They also showcased at the India-Singapore Enterprise and Innovation conference in the presence of the Prime Ministers of India and Singapore.

Rosaforte: Friends remember, mourn Lietzke

first_imgThe last time I talked to Bruce Lietzke was almost 14 months ago. He was in good spirits considering his diagnosis. Glioblastoma is a death sentence that very few beat. Lietzke called it “a bolt of lightning” when we spoke last June, a cancer that shows up for no reason. On Saturday morning it took his life, and the golf world reacted with sorrow and backstories that illustrated how Lietzke, 67 at the time of his death, was one of the most personable and technically efficient touring pros in the history of the game. During his offseason, Lietzke put away his clubs and replaced them with tools to work on his muscle cars. His favorite ride was a 1967 Corvette with a 466-cubic-inch engine. It is a true story that his caddie put a banana under the head cover of his driver going into one offseason, knowing when the clubs came out again, so would the banana. Lietzke lived on a farm in north Texas but never considered using some of the 625 acres to build a couple golf holes – not one blade of grass. “It’s water and pastures and no golf holes,” he said after climbing down from his tractor to take my call. The last time he remembered hitting a golf ball was his last PGA Tour Champions event in 2011. In seven years he hadn’t done an exhibition. Instead of “fishing” as special interest, Lietzke more accurately listed “serious fishing.” As friend Curtis Strange said in a Twitter post on Saturday, “We hunted, we fished, but most importantly we all laughed with Leaky.” As his career unfolded, Lietzke gradually decreased the number of events he played. Yet in what close friend Bill Rogers described as a part-time job, he was able to consistently carve the ball from left to right. On Twitter, Golf Channel’s Brandel Chambree compared Lietzke to Ben Hogan as two men who knew how to hit a fade. The difference was their work habits. Lietzke wasn’t a grinder. He was a natural. And, as sports psychologist and author Kapil Gupta once wrote, he focused on maintaining that skill.  “I read the transcript of an interview with Mr. Lietzke in which I came across one of the most interesting statements I have ever heard from a professional athlete,” Gupta wrote. “He said, ‘It’s human nature to want to be better. I don’t want to be better. I want to be exactly like I was yesterday.’ ” To the very end, Lietzke tried to remain positive. He came from the generation of Rogers, Strange, Andy Bean, Corey Pavin, Raymond Floyd, Hal Sutton, Tom Kite, Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw, Lanny Wadkins and Jerry Pate, so his13 career wins and seven on the PGA Tour Champions didn’t come easy. A year ago, Rogers, Crenshaw and Pate paid a visit prior to Lietzke’s first four-hour operation at the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center to tell stories. Before he was rolled in for surgery, Lietzke worried that his friends’ laughter would have them removed from hospital. Rogers was roommates with Lietzke in the early seventies at the University of Houston, and visited his friend 10 days ago, knowing it would be the last time they communicated. Bruce and his wife, Rose, went into the darkest hours together shedding tears and saying long prayers. They were married 38 years.  A service is planned based around the travel time of his friends getting home from the Senior Open at St. Andrews. “Today was a day full of celebrating one who did it about as good as you could do it,” Rogers said. “He did it good. He led a great life and he finished strong in regards to how he fought the disease. Now he can rest in heaven. Sure in that, we are.”last_img read more
