My main goal is to strengthen the healthcare sector using advanced technologies. I focused on Electronic Health Records (EHRs) security requirements for storing, searching, accessing, sharing, and auditing in Cloud Healthcare Monitoring System (CHMS). Recently, I received a ECR project worth 40 lakhs from DST-SERB entitled “Precision Medicine using Cognitive Computing (PMCC): A Tool to Predict Chronic Diseases and Recommend Personalized Treatment Just-in-time”. Precision medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment, and lifestyle for each person. This approach will allow doctors and researchers to predict more accurately, which treatment and prevention strategies for a particular disease will work for which groups of people.
The cognitive computing is the simulation of human thought processes in a computerized model. Cognitive computing involves self-learning systems that use data mining, pattern recognition and natural language processing to mimic the way the human brain works. This project’s main aim is to predict the future disease of a particular person based on his/her health data and recommend precise personalized treatment at right time. Although, I have good knowledge on bio-medicine in the field of healthcare sector, I need some inputs from the scientists who are working in this area from various countries. Hence, I seek cooperation with scientists from other BRICS countries to strengthen research in this field of healthcare sector. Dr Ramu Gandikota has peer reviewed in 12 publications.
