 HempStreet launches palliative care platform ‘Dignity’

Team L&M

Research-to-retail venture in the ayurvedic cannabis sector, HempStreet has launched a palliative care platform, Dignity.

Designed for patients suffering from terminal illnesses including cancer, leukemia, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and others, Dignity is a first-of-its-kind online caregiving platform in India. It promises to significantly enhance accessibility to palliative care services in India by up to 2-3 times, while simultaneously reducing the daily cost.

Palliative care services in India face inadequacy due to barriers like population density, poverty, and stringent policies, leaving less than 1per cent of the population able to reach healthcare centers. For terminally ill senior citizens, this becomes all the more challenging and their quality of life deteriorates.

Dignity aims to improve patient outcomes by providing comprehensive healthcare solutions including access to doctors, counsellors, emotional support services, emergency assistance, and safe medication management at a lower cost. The platform is accessible to users, caregivers, family members, and anyone within the palliative care ecosystem. The pilot project has been launched in Kerala

“Our mission at HempStreet has always been centered on improving patient outcomes and accessibility to healthcare,” says Abhishek Mohan, Founder and CEO, HempStreet. “As we have always been about going deep rather than wide, keeping the patient at the centre of our efforts, With our palliative care platform, we seek to bring a dignified upgrade to the landscape of end-of-life care in India, ensuring that everyone receives the compassionate support they deserve. We feel the actual definition of palliative care should be expanded to include every person above 60 years of age that experiences a single or multiple chronic illnesses. This would translate to about 20-25 million individuals at the minimum in India. This initiative is a testament to our unwavering dedication to driving positive healthcare delivery changes nationwide. We will in no way limit this platform to just our products and we invite all stakeholders to join us in this endeavour as we strive to redefine the standards of palliative care in India.”
