Telemedicine Services

Piramal Swasthya’s Telemedicine Services© Services bring much needed specialist healthcare to remote areas where there are few, if any, healthcare workers. We focus on both the beneficiary and the doctor – delivering the most accessible and affordable care by providing high quality specialists with the medical data they need in settings that make both beneficiary and doctor comfortable. We utilize medically-validated equipment and digitally interface with software for easy and accurate dataflow.

Piramal Swasthya’s telemedicine solution has the ability to serve all basic primary and secondary healthcare needs of the population.

Piramal Swasthya has partnered with State Governments & philanthropic organizations to run several telemedicine initiatives and havereached 15254 beneficiaries through 44 telehealth centres across India.

Piramal Swasthya’s pioneering health technologies maximize operational efficiency, eliminate human error and cut costs. Piramal Swasthya’s latest technology, Dox-in-Box®, supports our telemedicine offering. Piramal Swasthya designed Dox-in-Box® specifically for remote areas with difficult terrain. Integrated with Piramal Swasthya software, Dox-in-Box® digitally captures stores and transmits eight vital signs. It emphasizes general physician functionality and is easy to use. This reduces the need for highly skilled health workers where they are scarce. By virtually connecting doctor and patient, Dox-in-Box® bridges gaps in distance and time. Piramal Swasthya extensively uses Dox-in-Box® through a diabetes management program in Assam

In 2010, Piramal Swasthya launched Asara© in partnership with MacArthur Foundation. Asara© works to decrease maternal mortality among tribal people in Araku Valley, Andhra Pradesh. Tribal Araku Valley has very little infrastructure, including poor road connectivity and a lack of electricity and running water. Most tribal families generate a meagre average income through agricultural activities. Education facilities are unavailable or inadequate, resulting in extremely low literacy rate. Health problems in the region are greatly influenced by these factors. There is a high prevalence of protein, iron, vitamin A and iodine deficiencies as well as malnutrition. Moreover, the area’s MMR is 800 and IMR is 150. These ratios are roughly three times India’s national averages. In order to decrease maternal mortality among tribal people in Araku Valley, Asara© trains traditional birth attendants, raises awareness, conducts village outreach using Dox-in-Box® and connects pregnant tribal women with an OB/GYN in Hyderabad through telemedicine services which are hosted at Asara© Telehealth Centre. Asara© also provides for home-based neonatal care by training local ASHAs, traditional birth attendants and new mothers.

Other than Asara, Piramal Swasthya provides Telemedicine solutions in Gadag District, Karnataka. Piramal Swasthya also has “Comprehensive Type 2 Diabetes Care” under Sanjeevani project in Assam. This project has been funded by World Diabetes Foundation, Denmark, and includes IEC activities, screen for diabetes and diabetes risk factors, make referrals for disease confirmation, complications and monitor disease management. In Maharashtra Piramal Swasthya is operating telemedicine centres by connecting 10 PHCs of Thane District to 104 Health advice call centre, Pune.
