Reducing risk of Chronic Diseases by adding home-based patient careMumbai, 8th Feb 2012- Kartavya Healtheon, a dedicated health management company launched its chronic disease management services inIndia. With its unique concept by adding care to cure, it offers Patient Management service to individuals suffering from chronic illnesses.
Kartavya disease management is a patient-centric service model, where all services which a patient requires are provided at the patient’s doorstep and the servicing team ensures that the individual is given assistance and support on a regular basis through telephone calls, SMS, pill reminder machine and even personal visits by field based counselor.
Kartavya’s CEO Mr. Vikram Srivastava said “Cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancers, and chronic respiratory diseases is increasing rapidly across the country, it account to 53% of all deaths inIndia. Healthcare industry in the country is providing organised cure but was lacking organised care. There is continuous gap in chronic care and lifestyle conditions awareness, screening and behavioral modification. In order to control over the chronic diseases, we at Kartavya brought this concept of remote controlled disease management/patient management, which is certainly picking up in India. This is because access to information and disease awareness is very low and healthcare cost rising day by day.”
