SummaryE Health Points (EHP) are units owned and operated by Healthpoint Services India (HSI) that provide families in rural villages with clean drinking water, medicines, comprehensive diagnostic tools, and advanced tele-medical services that “bring” a doctor and healthcare to their community.
E Health Points units, started in rural India, provide families in villages with clean drinking water, medicines, comprehensive diagnostic tools, and advanced tele-medical services that “bring” a doctor and modern, evidence-based healthcare to their community. Because people come to pick up their water daily, the E Health Point has multiple opportunities to raise awareness about health issues and encourage early treatment of medical conditions. Tying healthcare delivery to water services also provides social cover for patients with socially-taboo conditions, such as tuberculosis or HIV.
Key program components
E HealthPoint has combined various existing and emerging technologies (like Broadband and Telemedicine , Electronic Health Records, Point of Care&Mobile Diagnostics, Reverse Osmosis based water purification) to deliver this unique business model primarily for underserved rural communities. While a variety of organisations in Public/Private/NGO sectors are providing various components of Healthcare and Water services, we believe that The E HealthPoint model is a pioneering and unique model that has bundled all these 5 services for the low income communities , especially in rural. The combination of the various standalone components as a service delivery model, using broadband for a doctor-patient interaction , combining preventive and curative services , bringing urban facilities to rural rather asking rural to come to urban has been a new contribution to the field . Thus E HealthPoint has developed and implemented an innovative, effective, culturally acceptable, replicable , participative , scalable and sustainable model to reduce health inequities and enhance human productivity.
