Wipro GE Healthcare provides imaging and ultrasound solutions to healthcare institutions. GE’s Healthcare Institute (HCI) Education portal is a robust assortment of courses developed and curated by leading experts across the globe.

With support from SAMRIDH, Wipro GE will train 6000 healthcare workers including doctors, nurses, paramedics and community healthcare workers in over 25 cities spanning 15 states and union territories in India, on COVID-19 protocols and management techniques. The entity will leverage its strategic partnership with hospitals, colleges, state governments of Uttar Pradesh, Goa and Sikkim, and industry bodies, such as FICCI, Healthcare Sector Skill Council and Uttar Pradesh Skill Development Mission (UPSDM).

The training plan will cover a demo of using equipment, such as ventilators, health monitoring devices etc., along with detailed coverage of curriculum specially designed for COVID-19 treatment. At least one-third of training, i.e. 2200 healthcare professionals will be trained onsite, while 4000 healthcare professionals will be training through an online platform. Additionally, around 200 doctors will be trained for advanced PICU/NICU pediatric COVID-19 case management. Once the training is completed, Wipro GE will continue disseminating the new information on ICMR protocols and COVID-19 management through an app or portal.
