GUWAHATI, April 3 - Ayursundra 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 at the corporate office of Ayursundra Healthcare Pvt Ltd at Lachit Nagar here.
According to Dr Abhijit Hazarika, co-founder and CEO of Ayursundra Healthcare, 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 utilisation 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 at any of the centres regardless of where they are from.
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 people�s doorstep. This will reduce the hassle for patients in the remotest areas by reducing their expenditure on travel and time. A kiosk is already running at Amingaon and another will be started from now at Kalgachia.
Earlier, the opening address was given by guest of honour journalist Nava Thakuria, where he briefed the audience on the role of healthcare providers in society and how quality and affordable healthcare in the region is the need of the hour.
After the event, the journalists present were given a free check-up in 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 are suffering from gout.
