Mobile Health Services (MHS) tackles barriers rural people face accessing primary healthcare. Piramal Swasthya deploys mobile medical units – vans equipped with technology, medical devices, and medicine and health workers – to villages where public health system is not accessible. MHS primarily focuses on chronic diseases, maternal and child health and minor ailments by providing:
- Screening and referrals
- Patient education
- Monitoring and follow up
- Electronic health records
Mobile Health Services aims to extend the health care services, where possible, to identify, screen, diagnose, treat, monitor, follow up and refer high risk cases for chronic diseases and those requiring maternal and child health services. This also helps to redirect patient flow and quality at public health facilities. Mobile Health Services creates and fortifies linkages among the public health system.
Each of the beneficiaries have an Electronic Medical Record (EMR), immensely helping on the clinical management of diseases/conditions. Digitized data enables us to manage the operations as well as the quality of service to high levels.
