  • India Home Health Care Expands Home Healthcare Services To Bangalore

    Published on June 29, 2011

    Bengaluru:  Chennai-based India Home Health Care Pvt. Ltd., today announced the launch of “Professional Health @ Home” in Bangalore. Through this service, India Home Health Care will provide professional nursing and physiotherapy services for patients in need at their home or hospital bedside. The service has been initiated directly and through a select group of leading hospitals and doctors in Bangalore and will be expanded within the coming month to cover the entire geography.

    Briefing newsmen, Mr Krishna Ulagaratchagan, VP, Sales & Marketing, India Home Health Care Pvt. Ltd., stated that this service is designed in conjunction with leading healthcare providers to extend the care of the hospital or doctor to the patient’s home in a professional manner and to international standards. “The benefits of professional healthcare services at home have been proven internationally and are now available in India. The significant advantages include lower overall costs, higher patient satisfaction and comfort, lower chances of hospital acquired infections and lower inconvenience from travel and waiting lines.” The advantages are not just for the patient; for the hospital a professional home healthcare partner allows the hospital to free up hospital beds sooner, extend monitoring and care services to the home of the patient and thereby increasing patient satisfaction and loyalty.

    Dr. Anitha Arockiasamy, Head of Clinical Operations and Head of Bangalore Operations, states that “The patients that we care for include new mothers and their infants who need additional care at home because of a lack of local family support, orthopedic patients that require physiotherapy services after a surgery or injury, diabetic patients that require insulin injections or wound care, and even stroke or other patients with neurological disabilities that need recuperative and monitoring services at home. We have a large team of over 200 Registered Nurses, Physiotherapists and Associate Nurses in Bangalore and Chennai and are recruiting aggressively. We expect that by end of the year we will be more than double that number. In fact, home healthcare is the fastest growing segment of nursing employment in the US and Europe with more than 2 lac nurses working in home healthcare in the US alone. This number is expected to double over the next few years. We are seeing the same level of interest from nurses in India as well, especially amongst those nurses interested in going abroad later in their career.”

    Indians are living longer and families are getting nuclear. Old age and diseases go hand in hand. Consequently the pressure on the family is enormous when any one of the members becomes unwell or needs hospitalization. Our service seeks to address the emotional side of the family anxiety. Patients and their families who have experienced our service are delighted with the kind of professional approach and support extended by our team. The doctors to whom our nurses report on patient health and recovery status are quite appreciative of the quality, feedback and documentation. “A service of this nature has long been overdue” she explained.
