- Brings specialist doctors under one roof for checkup using innovative technology
- Live consultation is helping speciality healthcare services in reaching the remotest corners of India
Legrand India, a part of the Legrand Group and a specialist in electrical and digital building infrastructure has kickstarted its medical health centre for the people in Haridwar and Jalgaon. As a part of its India CSR initiative, Legrand has collaborated with Nanavati Hospital, Mumbai to set up this telemedicine centre, which will aid in free super-speciality tele-consulting for patients for whom specialist healthcare is difficult to reach.
.A synergy between the best in medical and telecommunication technology, this CSR project is designed to be sustainable and scalable considering it can be replicated in other locations for Legrand. The facility will enable patients to connect with the doctors real-time through audio/video technology. Patients can diagnose and submit their health data such as BP, blood test, X-Ray etc. online which will be remotely made available to the doctor sitting at Nanavati Hospital with the help of paramedical staff available at the centre. Doctor and patient can then be connected real-time through audio-video. This technology also enables doctors to use a digital stethoscope to listen to the heart, lungs similar to a physical examination and subsequently prescribe relevant medicine.
Speaking on this occasion, Mr Tony Berland, CEO and MD, Legrand India said, “Business ecosystem, People and Environment are the three CSR focal areas at Legrand Group, in line with this objective, this CSR drive is a strategically driven project to support the health and wellbeing of the communities.” He further added, “As a part of our worldwide CSR effort, we are actively involved in providing telehealth facilities for remote communities in India. As a leading provider of connected products, it made complete sense to leverage this approach for helping the community and try to bridge the huge gap of healthcare accessibility in India. Over 10,000 people have availed of tele-consultations successfully at our centres. We would like to thank Nanavati Super Specialty Hospital for supporting this initiative as our Medical Consulting Partner and providing specialized doctors from their team for this centre.”
Mr Manpreet Singh Sohal, Director and Chief Operating Officer, Nanavati Super Speciality Hospital, said “In order to have continuous awareness & engagement of the marginalized community, so far 16 health camps have been organized in presence of Nanavati Hospital doctors at various location nearby Telemedicine Centre and more than 2500 community members availed the primary consultancy. This effective intervention will continue in future as well. The number of tele-consultancies at TMC is increasing which is supporting our premise that there was an acute need of such specialized tele-consultancy intervention. We are proud of our association with Legrand“.
