It is saddening that 35 per cent of deaths occur due to heart attack, cancer or diabetes within the productive age group of 35 to 60 years. In this grim scenario, with a goal to actively manage the health of the population, one patient at a time, a team of NRI doctors living in the USA came up with the concept of online healthcare in 2011 at Oregon, US.
This further led to the launch of DesiMD Healthcare in 2012, as its subsidiary in Hyderabad, when they saw a gap for active health management, in the online domain. DesiMD is a one-stop destination healthcare service provider for all healthcare needs, saving you the time, effort and confusion of reaching out to different doctors/healthcare providers, varied opinions, advices and multiple treatments.
As the publicity material for the company says: ‘These healthcare services are not a health insurance but health assurance services focusing on disease prevention and health maintenance from the comfort of the person’s home.’
Active Health Management (AHM) thus is a structured approach to managing one’s health with timely diagnosis, treatment, consistent monitoring of one’s health and backing it up with the necessary precautionary measures and lifestyle changes, coming from a single point of contact- DesiMD healthcare. This service is available once a person subscribes to Suraksha Health Card.
Further as the company describes its service outreach ‘A preventive approach is the key to leading a healthy and a happy life. But what if you are already suffering from health disorders and how do you still manage to live a healthy life? With AHM, DesiMD assures subscribers from slipping into serious and chronic disorders with a structured approach to managing it, because of its preventive and 360 degree approach to healthcare.
This means, as a healthcare service provider, it provides convenience-based, AHM services from diagnosis, through treatment, through constant health monitoring, to management till the patient is completely in control of his/her health. It is founded by Dr. Ajay Tripuraneni, CEO, a cardiologist, Dr. Rakesh Surapaneni, COO, an Oncologist and CMO, Dr. Satish Potluri, Hospitalist, all NRI doctors in USA
