Amid covid and health emergencies DataLEADS, an award-winning digital media and information company has launched Kruxd, the very first platform in India to provide access to global health data at one location.
With recent pandemic around the world, there has been a need for stringent health research & innovation and strong health related policies. This can be best supported with availability of verified health data. But with abundance of data, scattered across different platforms it’s easy to lose your way while searching what you are looking for. Hence, at Kruxd we are creating a data hub which will provide access to millions of comprehensive pre-cleaned health datasets in easy-to-comprehend and attractive visualization formats like infographics, dashboards, graphs, etc.
Anuja Venkatachalam, Data Editor at Kruxd says, “At Kruxd we aim to make global health data easily accessible for one and all. After all, why should anyone have to jump through hoops to get facts and figures that can save lives, help design better policies, and make sound data-based decisions. We have created a central hub of information flow on global health statistics. The data we maintain is assembled in such a way that it’s ready to be collected and analyzed, anywhere and anytime. We strive to use technology to make data more accessible, as accessibility improves transparency and transparency brings trust.”
One can simply log onto www.kruxd.in and search for datasets by topic, country or year. With Kruxd, you no longer need to spend all your time searching for and cleaning data sets. At Kruxd we do all the cleaning and processing so everyone can have access to all the health data.
This platform can be beneficial to doctors, medical health professionals, policy makers, researchers, medical students, pharma companies etc.
Tariq Hashmat Tauheed, Senior Data Analyst commented on the launch of Kruxd by saying, “Gathering and analyzing data requires time, effort and technical skill as data is collected from multiple sources and is often in unprocessable formats. At Kruxd, we’re always chasing the next big thing, making health data accessible is just the first step. It’s a global good that each one of us can benefit from. We value building relationships and so here we are building a platform that brings us all together. We believe it’s time health data gets out of it’s silos and into your hands. Data should not be esoteric anymore. So let’s work together to bring an impact and to build a stronger future with trust, transparency and accessibility.”
At Dataleads, we are committed to creating awareness about health, and we hope to make Kruxd the world’s largest database in health.
