HealthCare atHOME launches services for patients suffering from stroke
Bangalore, 30 October 2017: HealthCare atHOME (HCAH), today, has announced the launch of its state-of-the-art medical service to tackle the increasing cases of stroke in the country. While there are number of services available for stroke-related ailments, HCAH hopes to provide more comprehensive patient-centric stroke rehabilitation care at the comfort of patients' homes. HCAH's niche effort to address the growing need of personalised healthcare can be considered a revolutionary move given the nascent stage of home-based care in India. It is estimated that there are 1.6 million stroke cases in the country, out of which 0.5 million of these suffer from stroke-related disability due to lack of good-quality rehabilitation services.Today, there is lack of holistic multidisciplinary patient-centric care plan for rehabilitation services at home. HCAH not only brings home a well-coordinated multidisciplinary team i.e. physiotherapists, speech therapists, nurses & healthcare attendants but also brings e-monitoring, clinical quality audits, stroke-related equipment and consumables under one roof.
Commenting on World Stroke Day, Vivek Srivastava, Co-Founder and CEO,HealthCare atHOME said, ''Thecurrent rehabilitation services are rife with inadequacies. Although there aremany options that cater to different needs of patients, they are tied tolimitations. As the nation is grappling with these alarming numbers, a timely solutionis overdue. We, at HCAH, hope tochange this environment of inefficiencies and bring forth a robust healthcareecosystem to handle stroke cases. So far, we have successfully handled500+ stroke cases in a span of five years. We have deployed multidisciplinaryteams to deliver superior-quality, patient-centric care at the patients'residence. Our experience gives us the confidence to launch this specializedservice as an exclusive offering for patients who need care the most.''
To mark this occasion HCAH is launching an awarenesscampaign on stroke, its consequences and its possible treatment throughrehabilitation. The campaign 'Statue in Motion'' mirrors that fact that strokecan bring one’s life to a standstill just like a statue, it paralyses the wholeor part of the body. A comprehensive stroke rehabilitation program can helpbreak free from the clutches of paralysis.
The campaigns starts on Oct 28th andwill have street artists painted as statues placed in hospitals and mallsin the Delhi NCR & Bangalore. This creatively and powerfully captures thelife of a stroke victim. In carrying the momentum ahead, statues will suddenlymove to communicate that a home based comprehensive stroke rehabilitationprogram can help restore body movement and there by bring life back to thepatient.
