HealthCare atHOME (HCAH) now highlights the importance of treatment for mosquito and waterborne diseases like dengue, chikungunya, typhoid and malaria at the patient’s residence to offset the shortfall of beds at hospitals.
The alternative health delivery services like homecare proves to be most efficient in tackling the emergency.
Homecare services cover around 70% of all healthcare requirements of a patient. This includes pathology tests, medical equipment rentals and purchases and medicine delivery. Thus, patients can be effectively treated within the confines of their homes where they can receive personalized care and undergo treatment and recovery in an environment they are most comfortable in, said Dr. Gaurav Thukral, senior vice-president and business unit director, HCAH.
