HempStreet, India's first research-to-retail venture in the ayurvedic cannabis sector, is proud to announce the launch of its groundbreaking palliative care platform, Dignity. Designed for patients suffering from terminal illnesses including cancer, leukaemia, Parkinson's disease, epilepsy, and others, Dignity is a first-of-its-kind online caregiving platform in India. HempStreet’s objectives with this launch are twofold: to significantly enhance accessibility to palliative care services in India by up to 2 to 3 times, while simultaneously reducing the daily cost.
In India, palliative care services face inadequacy due to barriers like population density, poverty, and stringent policies, leaving less than 1% of the population able to reach healthcare centres. For terminally ill senior citizens, this becomes all the more challenging and their quality of life deteriorates. This initiative stems from HempStreet’s meticulous observation spanning over two years, revealing India's dire need for enhanced palliative care services.
With ‘Dignity’, HempStreet aims to improve patient outcomes by providing comprehensive healthcare solutions including access to doctors, counsellors, emotional support services, emergency assistance, and safe medication management at a lower cost. The platform is accessible to users, caregivers, family members, and anyone within the palliative care ecosystem. Kerala has more palliative care centres than the rest of the country and the initial implementation of the platform would be in Kerala with an aim to amplify the reach of palliative care personnel and also to reduce cost of delivery of care and medicines.
"Our mission at HempStreet has always been cantered on improving patient outcomes and accessibility to healthcare. With our palliative care platform, we seek to bring a dignified upgrade to the landscape of end-of-life care in India, ensuring that everyone receives the compassionate support they deserve. We feel the actual definition of palliative care should be expanded to include every person above 60 years of age that experiences a single or multiple chronic illnesses. This would translate to about 20 to 25 million individuals at the minimum in India,” said Abhishek Mohan, founder and CEO, HempStreet.
"This initiative is a testament to our unwavering dedication to driving positive healthcare delivery changes nationwide. We will in no way limit this platform to just our products and we invite all stakeholders to join us in this endeavour as we strive to redefine the standards of palliative care in India," Mohan added.
The unique selling proposition of Dignity lies in its ability to bring together various stakeholders involved in palliative care, amplifying the reach of palliative care professionals, ensuring safe access to medication, and providing comprehensive support tailored to individual needs.
HempStreet is India's first research to retail ayurvedic medicinal cannabis venture, working towards fusing the age-old science of Ayurveda with modern cannabis research to develop sustainable and economical solutions for mass ailments, all of this while ensuring end-to-end blockchain technology-based supply chain tracking to minimize any chance of abuse.
HempStreet's dispensation network of thousands of clinics across 26 states in India is a testament to the efficacy of the formulations and the trust of medical practitioners in the brand. Recently HempStreet partnered with MGC Pharma (EU), Gynica (Israel), and Amrita School of Ayurveda demonstrating its commitment to expanding its knowledge base, accessing cutting-edge research, and advancing the availability of safe and effective cannabis-based medicines, with unfettered commitment to clinical validation.
