In 2001 India received $1,705 million as aid for the healthcare programs which were only 2% of the total healthcare expenditure by the government. But most of this money go into urban areas and only a small amount is used by the rural areas

8ObjectivesPiramal e-Swasthya attempts to make affordable healthcare accessible to Indias rural communities using technology through a sustainable and scaleable service modelAFFORDABLE HEALTHCAREUse of TechnologySustainable Service Models

eSwasthya Working ModelLocal literate women (Piramal Swasthya Sevaks) are recruited undergo a rigorous training programme in which they are trained to collect simple diagnostic information, preventive medicine, first-aid and customer service. These women are given a medical kit, marketing material and a mobile phone. They are then assisted in setting up a tele-clinic (Piramal e-Swasthya Centre) at their own homes.Villagers who feel ill come to the Piramal e-Swasthya Center or are visited by the Piramal Swasthya Sevak. After talking to and examining the patient, the health care worker communicates this diagnostic data through a cell-phone to a centralized call centre.At the back end, a call centre worker enters the information provided into a simple e-diagnosis system, which generates an automated response with the recommended prescription and treatment. Doctors manning the call centre also validate this. The total treatment costs between Rs.30 - Rs.50 depending on the medical condition. The Piramal e-Swasthya Centre is also a village level pharmacy stocked with medicines necessary to fill the basic prescriptions recommended by the call centre. If the ailment appears serious, the call centre recommends that the patient visit a secondary or tertiary healthcare facility immediately.The healthcare worker also conducts preventive health workshops, which generate awareness about issues such as sanitation, nutrition and first aid.Working Model


Strengths & Challenges of the Program

CHALLENGESSTRENGTHSTelemedicine & CDSSThis innovation in service removes the distance barrier in rural healthcare through cutting edge technology.PSS uses mobile to dial up the Nucleus, a telemedicine call centre manned by paramedics & doctors. Paramedics receive the calls and enter information into web based Clinical Decision Support System(CDSS). This has been developed with TCS.CDSS is state-of-the-art clinical diagnosis platform that automates the generation of provisional diagnosis and prescription.Doctors review CDSS generated diagnosis.Prescription communicated to the PSS over the phone and SMS and she dispenses medicines from the kit provided.
