The Indian Institute of Technology, Guwahati (IITG) is developing a mobile application that can track the patient’s medication trend right from the point of diagnosis (designated microscopy centre).

The new app is being developed by the design department of IIT Guwahati and is likely to be launched by next month, Dr NJ Das, State Project Officer (RNTCP), told media.

The new application will act beyond the existing DOTS 99 which will help in tracking the progress only after the patient reports back to the physician for medication after being diagnosed with the disease.

The app will be launched on pilot basis in Kamrup (Metro) and Nalbari districts.
