Launching its rural outreach program in Maharashtra, healthtech startup Medyseva In association with NKP Salve Institute of Medical Sciences & Research Centre and Lata Mangeshkar Hospital, started telemedicine centre – Lata Mangeshkar Hospital Adhunik Chikitsa Kendra in Nagpur.
Medyseva plans to open 100 such centers across the Vidarbha Region. “Patients from far flung rural areas come to Nagpur for treatment of minor ailments. Lot of time and money is wasted in travel and stay. With this unique collaboration, we are bringing the doctors for consultation without the need for leaving the village or town for free,” says Lata Mangeshkar Hospital Chairman Ranjitbabu Deshmukh.
“This centre has been started for rural and needy patients who can avail its free benefits. We have started this center using modern technology through which the doctors from Lata Mangeshkar Hospital at Hingna Road and Sitabardi Nagpur through video will be able to communicate with the patients in rural areas. Immediate treatment can be started and if needed they can be advised to come to the hospital for further treatment,” adds says Hopsital Vice President Dr Ashishrao R Deshmukh.
“This hospital can now serve patients in rural or remote areas through an audio video system free at cost. Initially. At present the service is being offered to Saoner and Narkhed,” says Dr Anirudh Devke, Project In-Charge of the centre. “Soon such centers will be set up in places like Kalmeshwar, Wadi, Ramtek, Ajangaon, Buldana, Katol, Bhandara, Shegaon etc,” he adds.
“Medyseva bridges the gap between the urban doctors and rural patients by providing state-of-the-art technology, which covers the entire spectrum of services. Through this collaboration, we will be able to strengthen the rural healthcare infrastructure in the country. We plan to associate with several other medical colleges and hospitals in the near future,” shared Dr Vishesh Kasliwal, Founder and CEO Medyseva.
