We’ve all been there or seen it happen. Let’s take the case of a guy we can call Rajesh. He briefly fell unconscious at work the other day. He’s feeling fine now, but his wife is worried that there might be something wrong. She goes to a doctor who advises a battery of tests.
All tests appear normal, except for the eternally high lipids! Rajesh knows he needs to consult a doctor, but his hours are such that by the time he comes home, the clinics are closed. Leave is an issue because there is an upcoming client deliverable that is at a crucial stage. So, what does do? He just goes about his life till he has another health emergency. Unfortunately, this story is far too familiar.
With our busy schedules today, health (ours and our family’s), often takes a back seat till the point that it starts affecting our day-to-day lives. That is why, at Doorstep Health Services, our aim has always been to provide professional primary care and support services at your doorstep – when you want and where you want.
Technology is essential to ensure that primary care is adequately integrated, through backward linkages to homes and offices and forward linkages to specialists and hospitals. It is the one tool that improves access and responsiveness of any healthcare organization. To this end we have a comprehensive telemedicine platform through which you can connect to us when you want and from wherever you are.
Good health is not just about the absence of disease or early diagnosis and treatment. Rather, it is about the physical, mental, social and spiritual wellbeing of an individual. Health and illness both start at home. It is about how we go about our daily lives, the food we eat, the work we do and even how we think!
So nutrition, exercise, rest and recreation need as much emphasis as the need to treat illness. These are areas in which we provide support-to corporates and communities.
At Doorstep Health Services, we promote a multipronged approach to healthcare that is centered around:
- Encouraging Adherence to best practices around healthcare management
- Emphasis on prevention through regular monitoring
- Focus on food hygiene and quality
- Making health management convenient
- Community initiatives
- Using technology as an advantage
As an organization that specializes in Professional, Primary Health Services, DHS works closely with individuals, communities and Corporations, and is thus better able to understand issues that affect our community.
Our Doorstep Health Services blog is a platform to talk about interesting insights on healthcare in India, share our expertise and offer useful tips on handling emergencies and day-to-day issues. We also hope to share our observations along the way and give readers an insight into our philosophy.
