- The Haryana – Deloitte collaboration builds on the existing state’s medical care services and home treatments.
- Sanjeevani Pariyojana, designed and supported by Deloitte, the Public Health Foundation of India and the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences (PGIMS-Haryana), is a critically important step in bringing much needed medical care to the people who need it most, when and where they need it most. The pilot project will begin in the district of Karnal and may include a rollout to other affected areas shortly thereafter.
- Punit Renjen, Deloitte Global CEO, said: “Deloitte’s purpose is to make an impact that matters and supporting the people of Haryana as the government delivers much needed medical care to Covid-19 patients is one of the most important impacts we can make.
- This collaboration will ‘expand the medical ward’ by delivering help to those who can recover at home, thereby preserving capacity at larger hospitals to treat the critically ill. This approach was designed to be ‘fit for purpose’ and may yield a model to enable broader health equity and access to critical health resources in the region and beyond.”
7 Initiatives under this Project are as follows –
- Operating a remote command centre for managing scarce resources including hospital beds, oxygen supply, ambulances, medical professionals, and monitoring at home patients
- Augmenting existing call centre capabilities with a COVID-19 hotline.
- Mobilizing 200 medical students to provide virtual health services for mild to moderate cases (with supervision). This includes distributing home care kits consisting of mask, oximeter, thermometer, and basic medicines.
- Deploying ALS ambulances and mobile pharmacies.
- Equipping a field hospital with medical equipment (e.g., oxygen concentrators) for surges in COVID-19 patients.
- Launching an awareness campaign on home care protocols and leveraging community workers (the ASHA network) to support in-home care.
- Developing a playbook for other geographies to replicate
Overall, Let’s hope for the betterment of everyone.
