Kartavya Healtheon launches Chronic Diseases Management Services in 3 major cities in India
Taking big leap for 'patient care management’ across the country
Kartavya’s CEO Mr. Vikram Srivastava said, “Cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are increasing rapidly across the country; it alone accounts for 53% of all deaths in India. The healthcare industry in the country is providing organized cure but is lacking organized care. There is a continuous gap in chronic care and lifestyle condition awareness, screening and behavioral modification. In order to take control of the spread of chronic diseases, we at Kartavya have brought this concept of Self-controlled patient management, which is certainly picking up pace in India. We are doing this because access to information and disease awareness is very low and healthcare cost is rising day by day.”
“The company’s business model, which includes pharma companies and physicians as its stakeholders, has proved to be successful. Since its inception, the promoters have infused the required investments. At present, we are looking at potential investors who understand this business and those who could add value to the company's growth,” added Mr. Srivastava.
To achieve efficacy, the company is leveraging its technical prowess to make disease management more effective and efficient across India. It is thus taking the healthcare sector to the next level with emerging technology as a backbone.
