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.
It is convenient for patients who are already suffering from fever or other illnesses to get the blood tests done within their comfort zone. There is a team of highly trained DMLT certified phlebotomists and NABL accredited labs. In addition patients can be safe from the hospital-acquired infections risk which could further aggravate the already encumbered hospital infrastructure. Therefore, homecare is also an extension of the services provided by regular hospitals. By vacating beds, widening the reach of doctors and reducing chances of infections, homecare not only proves to be invaluable but also indispensable for the efficient treatment”, he added.

Home based healthcare operates in a simple but well-regulated manner. Consulting doctors and physicians advise treatments, which the professionally trained homecare health providers implement accordingly. With the help of advanced communication technology, doctors linked to patient’s condition in real-time. This allows the doctors to intervene at any point of time, giving them complete control over their patients and making the care dynamic, said Dr. Thukral.
