Hub-and-spoke model providing access to low-cost healthcare in rural areas
Incubated Since 2016 Headquarters West Bengal, India Sector Healthcare Sub-sector Tele-medicine
While 70% of the country lives in semi-urban and rural areas, approximately 80% of the healthcare infrastructure is only available in urban areas, which results in lack of information and minimal access to healthcare in rural areas.
Ujjeewan Healthcare is a medical services company that seeks to amend this imbalance through its programme Healthypariwar, by providing access to health care and trained doctors in rural India using tele-medicine. Healthypariwar has already been conducting tele-medicine consultations and will now extend its impact by setting up a number of units.
This a cost effective method of health care delivery. More efficient and effective use of medical and technological resources since its initiation and an enhanced diagnostic and therapeutic quality of care.
