Daily Rounds & Marrow: Empowering the Doctor Community Digitally

Bangalore, India : The pandemic and the ensuing lockdown brought down a plethora of difficulties upon everyone. Students are no exception to this. With schools, colleges, and universities closed indefinitely, students have faced a myriad of problems trying to complete their curriculum.

Within the student community, it is the medical students who are hit the hardest. Many hospitals and medical institutions in our country are now COVID centres, and senior medical faculty are working on the front lines. This means that there are no regular classes or clinical postings, at least till the country reaches some semblance of normal. Moreover, interns and students are being called in to assist in the frontlines. In a nutshell, this gives students less time to study, and less opportunities to learn by shadowing clinicians.

As attending classes physically is unthinkable given the current scenario, many medical students have turned towards what is gaining humongous traction amongst youth: digital learning. The main advantage? Flexible hours and customized learning style.

Education has taken a dramatic turn – with more and more institutions adopting remote learning.

Here is where it gets interesting. Studies have shown that digital learning is proving to be quite effective- with students retaining more information in a shorter period. Digital learning may very well be the future, especially if social distancing becomes the “new normal”.

Learning never stops. The quest for knowledge and innate curiosity has driven many medical students to learn digitally. And one of the constant apps in their phone is Marrow.

An online learning platform for MBBS students with topic-wise and curated learning modules, tests, performance analytics on critical areas, and high-quality video classes, Marrow’s clinical and conceptual teaching methods have made it synonymous withGold Standard for NEET – PG preparation.

 

This is what a medical student had to say about Marrow:

“My rank in NEET PG 2019 was 41,000. Today, I am in the AIIMS Top 15. With Marrow, I almost hacked the whole process of preparation. Marrow made me shift my focus to the core concepts, and that led me to tackle questions across various subjects.”

Currently used by more than half a million medical students in India, Marrow has grown from being a platform to prepare for NEET – PG, India’s largest competitive entrance exam, to an indispensable study source for all medical students.

 

So how did Marrow achieve such a compelling platform? Here’s how:

Every single content at Marrow is evidence-based and error-free as it is reviewed extensively by reputed clinicians and medical professors. Moreover, Marrow’s questions and video lectures are updated after every significant exam – the platform’s faculty members work with the top 100 students to deliver the best and newest content.

Studies have shown that spaced repetition can help improve retention by up to 30%! This principle is woven into Marrow’s content and has helped students immensely.

Marrow’s faculty includes top clinicians and medical college professors, and this is reflected in Marrow’s content – the platform’s modules are clinically oriented.

Digital learning in medicine has fixed an academic gap, and might be here to stay, as newer technologies become more accessible. However, it cannot replace the knowledge a student gains from clinical rounds. DailyRounds aims to create a close substitute by building a collaborative platform where doctors can share information, publish clinical case studies, articles and images after they are reviewed by other medical professionals. This builds a valuable repository of knowledge, where both students and established doctors can learn from shared experiences.

Marrow, along with DailyRounds, form India’s largest academic network of doctors. Doctors across the world share and discuss clinical cases on the DailyRounds app. Both products run on a firm belief that a case-based problem solving approach can revolutionize medical education and have a direct impact on patient outcomes.

By driving the focus towards clinical thinking, DailyRounds & Marrow are building the next generation of exceptional doctors, one doctor at a time.

THIKEDAAR.COM – India’s first construction company with an online platform for all its services

HOW THIKEDAAR.COM, PATNA BASED START-UP BRINGS REAL-TIME CONSTRUCTION COST CALCULATION AND UPDATES TO CONSTRUCTION OF HOMES?

Patna, Bihar [India] : Thikedaar.com started a revolution by bringing real-time Construction cost estimation and updates to the construction and made it easy and convenient for every person to build their dream homes – just by sitting at home.

Every person has a dream to own a house in his life. Big or small, doesn’t matter but everyone wants their house to be strong so that they can pass it to their children and grandchildren as a legacy. But nowadays this dream seems very difficult. It has many hurdles to get into reality as the Indian construction industry is full of inept contractors. Because of them, there is a lack of transparency in construction besides with substandard quality of materials and construction delay.

Affordable housing is at the heart of building inclusive cities. India’s ambitious ‘Housing for All’ project aims at providing a home to every poor urban household by 2022. More than 90% of the housing shortage in urban India is faced by economically weaker sections and low-income groups, according to government data. At the same time, 7.5 lakhs apartments remain unsold across the Mumbai Metropolitan Region, the National Capital Region, Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, and Kolkata, indicating the high demand-supply mismatch. While demand is mostly in the affordable housing segment, the supply is high in the higher-price segments. Also, McKinsey in 2014 estimated that 33% of existing houses in India are of substandard quality.

To revolutionize this kinda construction, Ar. Sujeet Kumar Mishra came up with this innovative start-up Thikedaar.com. This start-up came up with a comprehensive web platform that will change the whole construction process. This online portal allows customers to make a house in a very easy and convenient way with just a few clicks.

“All that customer has to do is to select the materials from a wide range of materials as per their budget and taste. With the selection of materials, the real-time cost will be generated. The pricing is based on per square feet. This user-friendly technique conveys that its customer who should decide the materials as per their budget. We are no one to decide package or budget for them as everyone has their limitations and we understand that,” says Ar. Sujeet Kr. Mishra.

The team then goes about managing the construction of the house from raw materials to finished products and it is guaranteed that no extra charges are on customers’ pockets. The whole construction is done at that price only on which the client has agreed through the website.

THE STORYLINE OF CONSTRUCTION NEEDED TO CHANGE

Statistics from CREDAI show that more than 90 percent of projects face unfair pricing, zero smart technology, lack of labor safety measures, delays, no transparency, uncertified experts as consultants, shortage of materials and debris disposal ground, builder withdrawals, irregular updates, and a lack of official approval knowledge.

These all sum up together to make the construction industry a trust – deficit industry which in turn causes many consequences in the society. Hence, to make the society free from such consequences, Ar. Sujeet came up with Thikedaar.com which has a system of the end – to – end management & ownership of the project on behalf of the customer.

Construction and stability should always complement each other. For this, it requires skilled contractors who value time, quality, and service. According to data, nowadays people are very afraid of contactors as they commit a lot at the time of agreement but the reality is different. To bridge this gap, the start-up consists of only skilled and experienced engineers, architects, designers, managers, and workers; thoroughly vetted by company experts.

“Effectiveness and efficiency are two words which are very important while construction. To achieve these, Thikedaar.com came up with real-time updates that will be sent directly to customers every morning and evening. This makes customers free from running behind the contractor for every minute information and details. We want to ensure their customer that construction will be carried out smoothly even if they are far away from the site,” says Ar. Mishra

Here at Thikedaar.com, the project is divided into dedicated milestones to make it easier for the company to keep a check on all parameters for the client. Milestones also ensure that the work is done stringently with on-time payments. This helps the customer to build their house without taking a loan from anyone and keep them away from any kind of debt tension.

“According to data, most of the people in India go for unplanned structure as they have trust issues with a contractor as well as architects. And at last, they for local contractors who don’t have enough knowledge to provide a good design for their house. An unplanned structure leads to unplanned urbanization which directly or indirectly influences many other elements in society. To optimize this, we at Thikedaar.com provides free design to every client,” says Ar. Sujeet

Furthermore, Thikedaar.com also provides free life-time services to their customers. Old customers can contact the company whenever they want. They believe in making strong relationships.

 

THE MAN & Wo-MAN BEHIND THIS INNOVATION

The revolutionary who brought this change to the construction industry is Ar. Sujeet Kumar Mishra, an architecture graduate of Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra. A very experienced Architect, trained under many scholars and experts. He has worked in both rural and urban areas which brought him a comprehensive knowledge of construction. His idea was supported by Ar. Jenie Singh eventually ends up being her as the Co-founder. She is an Alumni of the Birla Institute of Technology Mesra& National Institute of Technology Durgapur, which brings a lot of value in the marketing & communication dept.

 

INFRASTRUCTURE BOOM

“India is on the stage of infra boom with construction industry’s 9% share in GDP. According to Govt. of India, the construction industry is expected to grow on average by 7.1 % each year and will emerge as the third-largest sector globally by 2025. Furthermore, according to IBEF, the real estate industry is worth 200 billion dollars”, said Ar.Sujeet.
