Ayusundra Diagnostics on Wednesday announced the launch of its Kiosks that would work as ‘Health Sentinels’ in reaching out to the last mile of the healthcare delivery chain. The event began at 11 am in the corporate office of Ayursundra Healthcare Pvt Ltd at Lachit Nagar in Guwahati.
Dr Abhijit Hazarika (Co-founder & CEO of Ayursundra Healthcare) said,
“Ayursundra model is designed to reduce the gap between diagnosis and treatment, while easing the patient’s anxiety and making treatment more cost effective for him. The inter-connectivity facilitates optimal utilization of the available resources for patients to receive the appropriate medical attention. The unique approach of providing affordable and quality healthcare to the ‘last mile’ is based on the revolutionary ‘Hub and Spokes’ model. This ensures uniformity in deliverables and services. Patients will be able to access their reports in any of the centres regardless of where they are from.”
Sanjib Dutta (Head of Marketing & Sales, Ayursundra Diagnostics) said
“Ayursundra Healthcare has an edge over the other healthcare providers
in the region due to to its unique interconnected model, the only private healthcare institution in the northeast with two verticals – hospitals and diagnostics. The Ayursundra vision is to create an unique ecosystem that will provide quality and affordable services such as sample collection, e-consultation, tele-medicine, timely follow up of patientsand the Kiosks will help penetrate into the most remote areas of the region.”
The Kiosk support will act as the ‘sub-spoke’ in the ‘Hub and Spokes’ model that will supplement the spokes and hub by reaching out to the last mile and providing quality and affordable healthcare services at their door step. This will reduce the hassle for patients in the remotest areas by reducing their expenditure on travel and time. It must be noted that a Kiosk is already up and running in Amingaon and another in Kalgachia will be started from now.
Ayursundra diagnostics has presence across several districts across Assam such as Kamrup (Metro), Kamrup (Rural), Barpeta, Jorhat, Tezpur and Tinsukia. By 2022, the company aims to set up kiosks to supplement all the existing hubs that are operational at the moment. Ayursundra is also looking to explore and expand in Silchar, Silguri, Shillong and Dimapur in the next few years.
Earlier the opening address was given by guest of honour journalist Nava Thakuria, where he briefed the audience regarding the role of healthcare providers in the society and how quality and affordable healthcare in the region was the need of the hour.
After the event, the journalists were also given a free check up at the premises. Blood samples were collected in order to check the level of uric acid, as part of a Guwahati Press Club survey to determine how many scribes in the city were suffering from gout.
