Piramal Swasthya Management and Research Institute (formerly known as HMRI) is a registered non-profit organization based in Hyderabad. Founded in 2007, Piramal Swasthya is a part of Piramal Foundation and works towards making healthcare accessible, affordable and available to all segments of the population, especially those most vulnerable. In order to achieve this goal, Piramal Swasthya leverages cutting edge information and communication technologies to cut cost without compromising on quality as well as establishing partnerships to scale its solutions throughout India and beyond. Piramal Swasthya is present across India in 9 states with a 1400 +strong force comprising of 150+ Doctors and specialists. Our innovative technology based solutions have helped 7 state governments to address the issue of availability and accessibility of quality healthcare to needy sections of society.
The three foundational principles behind Piramal Swasthya beliefs and solution are:
- Accessibility – Healthcare should be accessible for everyone
- Availability – Healthcare should be available for everyone
- Affordability – Healthcare should be affordable for everyone
These foundational principles have led Piramal Swasthya to incorporate a solution that is based on the belief that everyone should have access to:
- Health information 24×7 from anywhere
- Primary health services within three kilometers of place of residence and
- Specialist healthcare
These essential believes have translated into an integrated solution implemented through three programs:
- Health Information Helpline provides round-the-clock medical advice, counseling, directory information and complaint registry services by using medically validated algorithms and disease summaries.
- Mobile Health Services deploy technology-enabled vehicles to remote villages to provide screening and follow up services for maternal and child health and chronic disease conditions for vulnerable population.
- Telemedicine Services connects remote rural patients with urban doctors to deliver specialist care.
Each of these solutions integrates with India’s existing public health system by leveraging existing human resources, referring patients and reducing the load of minor ailments to redirect patient quality and flow. The result is complementary services and an augmented system, ultimately strengthened for the long term.
