Hewlett Packard and Narayana Health, one of India’s leading healthcare providers, have announced they will work together to expand the number of HP Cloud–enabled eHealth Centres in India, to deliver quality, affordable healthcare services to more people living in the country’s resource-deprived locations.
eHealth Centres are rapidly deployable healthcare facilities, powered by HP’s cloud-enabled solution. They are built to connect patients in remote areas, who couldn’t previously afford or access healthcare, to receive remote consultations and diagnoses from physicians and specialists. Housed in shipping containers or existing facilities, each eHealth Centre is customized and fully equipped with cloud-integrated diagnostic equipment, HP Workstations and video conferencing. These technologies enable the collection, analysis and tracking of individual and community-wide data—such as disease patterns and risk factors—as well as regional-health profile monitoring to facilitate real-time disease surveillance.
Narayana Health will serve as a healthcare partner in this initiative to implement, operate, run and manage newly established eHealth Centres for providing primary healthcare to patients, and addressing healthcare delivery and awareness challenges in Tier-2 and Tier-3 cities. This includes screening and primary healthcare and progress towards early detection, diagnosis and evidence-based preventive healthcare.
“Our goal is to provide high-quality healthcare on a large scale to people in India,” said Dr. Ashutosh Raghuvanshi, Vice Chairman, Managing Director and Group CEO, Narayana Health. “Partnering with an innovation leader like HP allows us to leverage technologies, such as telemedicine and cloud capabilities, to accelerate our goal of reaching more people and delivering early detection and diagnosis to patients, while maintaining manageable costs.”
