WHO WE ARE
MedRev Foundation is an organization striving to address the gap in the availability of low cost primary health care in rural areas. Drawing inspiration from our vision. To transform healthcare and to contribute our best to make healthcare available, accessible and affordable for all, the goal of MedRev Foundation is to set up primary health care centres in the remotest areas of the country, providing OPD facilities as well as medication to the low income, hard to reach population in India.
WHAT WE DO
The health care sector in India is plagued with poor infrastructure, long wait times, high diagnostic costs and extensive travel for treatment. While 78% of the Indian population resides in rural areas, only 2% of medical professionals are available in these areas. In the absence of any organized modern medical facilities, the rural poor fall victim to under qualified doctors near their homes, who extract large sums of money for even basic treatment. The only other alternative available is to travel to private hospitals located in urban areas, an activity which is both tedious and expensive. It is the gap in the availability of low cost primary health care that the innovation is striving to address.
THE MEDREV FOUNDATION INNOVATION
MedRev Foundation aims to create a chain of clinics that provide high quality affordable outpatient care in low-income densely populated regions of All over India, characterized by dearth of adequate quality primary health care. MedRev clinics provide an all in price health care service that is cheaper than that ultimately paid at a private clinic or in travelling long distances to access government clinics.
MedRev Foundation has a sound and scalable business model with potential for delivering impact to low-income communities. The idea is to develop each rural centre as a self-sustaining unit, so it may continue to deliver services without any external support.
- The key elements of the MedRev Foundation Innovation are:
- Each primary health care clinic is equipped with four departments namely General Medicine, Ophthalmology, Homeopathy and Dentistry (Emergency services are not provided). There is one doctor in each department and five support staffs assist them.
- The patients are required to pay a one-time registration fee of Rs 50 in lieu of which they are offered diagnosis and a weeklong supply of medicines free of cost.
- The centres identify needy patients and arrange free cataract surgeries in collaboration with Private, Government Hospital and Doctor and free general surgeries in collaboration with local facility.
- In order to motivate doctors to continue in service they are provided free food and boarding facilities.
- Patients are provided with spectacles at a subsidized rate along with required power glasses. Wheel chairs, blankets and crutches have also been distributed.
