"The app provides latest information about treatment and diagnosis of 15 GI diseases. It also provides access to latest research papers available, which can help doctors choose the best treatment. In addition, the app has complete guidelines for GI diseases," said Dr. Dutta.

The Director General of The Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) has asked Dr. Dutta to work on another application that will cover all emergencies.

Dr Dutta said, "The new app will include specialties such as pulmonary medicine, cardiology, neurology, endocrinology, hematology and acute infections. The work on information collection for the app has begun and a team of health experts from each department has been formed."
