Apollo connect launches effective doctor-to-doctor, hospital-to-hospital contact

HYDERABAD: Apollo, the world’s largest integrated healthcare provider, has announced a pan-India expansion of their one-of-a-kind connected care program, Apollo Connect, on Monday. With this, Apollo aimed at creating the largest connected healthcare ecosystem in India, empowering hospitals and nursing homes across metros and non-metros to offer holistic and superior patient care.

It’s hospital to hospital connect. Small hospitals are guided by expert doctors in large hospitals. Basically, Apollo Connect is a D2D (doctor to doctor) connect.

Commenting on the vision of the program, Dr Prathap C Reddy, founder and chairman, Apollo said, “As care providers, the imperative for us is to collaborate and support each other to ensure no sick person goes untreated for lack of access to quality care. It is with this commitment that we have created the Apollo Connect program, an initiative towards building healthcare together, by bringing healthcare providers on one platform to provide superior care and keep patients closer to home.”

Prathap C Reddy said that for the past two years, Apollo had been piloting Apollo Connect with specialty hospitals and nursing homes pan-India and had seen immense success across the board – for instance, a super specialty hospital in Moradabad had set up their own in-house laboratory in collaboration with Apollo diagnostics, a multispecialty hospital in Chhattisgarh had increased ICU occupancy by 50 percent in partnership with Apollo’s eICU service; a super specialty hospital chain in Bangalore was able to take on more complex emergency cases through frequent training and consults from Apollo’s critical care team, he said.

Dr Sangita Reddy, Joint Managing Director, Apollo, said, “Since our inception, we have been committed to making India healthier by building and providing the best healthcare solutions. Apollo Connect for us is one more step in that direction where we help patients get access to quality healthcare as close to them as possible, including but not limited to emergency care, diagnostics, remote monitoring as well as surgical consults among others.”

Sangita Reddy said that every hospital and nursing home was an opportunity for the healthcare ecosystem to reach more patients and save more lives. “We are confident that by empowering these institutions, we will be able to build a world class healthcare system in India where everyone has access to superior facilities and opportunities for the best treatments. We truly believe in the power of the ecosystem coming together and we’re set to go the extra mile to make this a reality,” she said.

She also said that Apollo Connect offers its partner hospitals multiple services across four key areas of benefits - boosting revenues and saving costs, strategic business support, providing superior care guidelines to aid patient retention and training, mentoring programs and courses.
