The hospital was completed in 100 Days at a fraction of the cost of the comparable facility
UpHealth has opened the first digitally-enabled hospital in Nagaland. The hospital, called HelloLyf HX, is the first facility of its kind and a revolutionary re-thinking of traditional hospitals with a state-of-the-art climate-resilient design vetted and approved by the acclaimed Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. The hospital was completed in 100 Days at a fraction of the cost of the comparable facility.
UpHealth’s HelloLyf HX digital hospital provides outpatient care, emergency care, radiology and imaging, intensive care, high-dependency care, inpatient care and houses a complete dialysis unit. It is powered by HelloLyf, a leading patient management, digital health and decision support software. The HelloLyf software can link patients with virtual healthcare specialists, worldwide.
The hospital provides 88 e-ICU beds with connected ventilators and injection syringe pumps, mapped to the HelloLyf patient management software, exceeding monitoring systems in place at regional hospitals.
The Nagaland hospital represents the first such hospital that UpHealth constructed. Many such hospitals are planned across India, with many more scoped for Africa with aggressive timelines. UpHealth is also exploring the possibility of similar hospitals in rural and underserved areas of the US.
The HelloLyf HX hospital is outfitted to provide COVID-19 care and resources to Nagaland during the ongoing pandemic and use as an acute care hospital post-pandemic.
