Story

Background
 
We, at Medivow Foundations, owe it to ourselves to live up to our name “Medi+Vow”. It is a vow to serve affordable and reliable healthcare services to the society, particularly to rural India. We believe that access to proper healthcare services is one of the key features in the development of a healthy and progressive society. India does not produce as many doctors to cater to the needs of ‘Bharat’, therefore our vision is to leverage latest technology towards providing better and timely medical services to the remotest areas of rural India.

Our mission is to setup Medivow Centres in various villages where people do not have access to proper medical facilities. Our centres would work like “Virtual OPD centres” to provide telemedicine through web-based video conferencing solution besides other services to cover the whole gamut of healthcare.

Goal – To improve the reach of healthcare services to ‘Bharat’
We have already started off with Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh to setup a model centre where we are all the facilities mentioned above.

Long Term Objective - Our long term goal is to create a multiple of such ‘Medivow Centres’ so that we could expand the reach of medical advice to people living in remote areas and who do not have access to right medical intervention at the right time.

Target Area – We are targeting areas which are little far flung from the nearest city and also where there is some internet connectivity because the basis of our services is an internet connection. Where there is either no medical infrastructure or where there is a presence of only local ‘Jhola-chaap’ doctors who do not have the right competence.

Activities Planned/Proposed
We shall be providing the following health care services in each centre:
  • Video conferencing with Doctors— It is always difficult for people in rural areas to get access to doctors for their medical needs. In many cases the gap and time lapse leads to the diseases becoming incurable. We will provide Video Conference sessions with renowned Doctors from all over India and abroad so that the patients get the medical advice without delay.
  • Medicine Availability---We will ensure the availability of all kinds of medicines in the rural areas in the most affordable manner. We shall be dedicating some shelf space for stocking medicines. We shall collaborate with the existing chains of chemists to manage the centre in order to deliver the right medicine at the right time at the right price for our lesser fortunate fellow citizens.
  • Ambulance Facilities---We will provide Ambulance service to a cluster of villages in order to handle critical cases that require immediate medical intervention at the city hospital.
  • Labs Test Facility---We will collaborate with the existing chain of path labs to bring the diagnostic infrastructure a step closer to rural India.
  • Healthcare Awareness Education Programmes---Prevention is better than cure, therefore, from time to time we will be conducting Awareness Camps/ Programmes in rural areas to educate the people about their daily hygiene and how they can prevent diseases.
  • Healthcare Insurance Availability---We shall be educating people on the importance of Medical and Life Insurance. We shall be offering assistance in availing various Government initiated insurance programmes and shall subsequently help people in claim-settlement procedures.
