DataNimbus and CureBay: Transforming Healthcare through Data and AI powered Innovation



Curebay, a Healthcare Services Provider in India, embarked on a journey of digital transformation to bridge the significant urban-rural healthcare accessibility gap while tackling the provider shortage. In the realm of healthcare informatics, the imperative for data-driven solutions was unmistakable. DataNimbus initiated a collaborative partnership through a Proof of Concept (POC), which involved engineering a customer acquisition engine on the Databricks Lakehouse platform to analyze and rank potential customer data. This project not only underscored the pivotal role of data in addressing healthcare challenges but also laid the foundation for subsequent initiatives, propelling Curebay closer to its noble mission.

Business Challenge

Curebay’s operations include surveying non-metropolitan residents about chronic diseases and monthly medical costs—a rich dataset ripe for healthcare analytics and customer profiling to uncover untapped business opportunities. However, Curebay only had raw survey results and needed an intelligent solution to identify and rank the most potential customers for each service using a score. The goal was to turn survey data into actionable insights to target potential customers effectively, maximizing Curebay’s healthcare solutions’ reach and impact.


DataNimbus enhanced Curebay’s data capabilities significantly by implementing Databricks on Google Cloud, taking advantage of cloud-based analytics and predictive modeling to convert raw survey data into actionable insights.Before this, Curebay utilized Google Cloud with DuckDB on instances for their visualization backend. The transition to Databricks streamlined data management and analysis, integrating well with the existing setup. Following this, relevant tables were migrated to Databricks, forming a centralized data repository. A key part of the solution was the creation of a customer acquisition engine on the Databricks Lakehouse platform. This engine analyzed survey data to rank potential customers for each service, employing machine learning models to score and categorize individuals, converting raw survey data into actionable insights for targeted healthcare offerings.

Initially, the focus was on working with the training data. Relevant tables were extracted and preprocessed, and appropriate models were trained using Databricks offerings like MLflow, facilitating the tracking and management of the machine learning lifecycle.

Transitioning to the production phase, considering the client’s use of DuckDB, data snapshots were pulled daily to capture the latest survey results. These fresh data snapshots were fed into the trained models to generate predictions on potential customer ranking for each service.
The newly inferred data, which indicated the ranking of potential customers, was subsequently integrated into Curebay’s tables daily. This streamlined process transformed the raw survey data into a dynamic, actionable ranking system, enabling Curebay to better identify and engage potential customers for their healthcare services.
