Digital technology with clinical expertise, a game changer for primary health care sector in India

-By Manasije Mishra, Managing Director, Indian Health Organisation & Aetna India

Indian healthcare is characterized by a lack of access to robust primary care system, increasing medical expenses and a poor doctor to patient ratio. In urban India, there is a focus on tertiary care with significant investments in high-quality corporate hospitals. We in India, tend to ignore symptoms, take self-medication or take advice from friends, family and unqualified people around us. When matters become serious, we tend to go directly to a specialist or super specialist doctor. This often leads to poor clinical outcomes and higher costs. This is unlike in more advanced countries, where a primary care doctor, who knows the patients’ medical and family history, coordinates preventive care, acts as a guide and gatekeeper in providing early diagnosis and treatment. The neglect of primary care in India is one of the reasons of the increasing disease burden and medical costs. E-healthcare has the potential to make quality healthcare accessible and improve the quality of primary health care. Read more

HONEYWELL AIR PURIFIERS RECOMMENDED BY INDIAN MEDICAL ACADEMY FOR PREVENTIVE HEALTH

Honeywell (NYSE: HON), a leader in Connected Building technologies, has been awarded a certificate of recommendation by the Indian Medical Academy for Preventive Health (IMAPH) for the company’s Air Touch air purifiers in India.

India is currently home to half of the world’s 20 most polluted cities. For the last several months, air quality in Delhi and the National Capital Region has been the worst of the season. The combined effect of smoke from crop burning in adjoining states and city pollution — from construction, vehicles and industry – has created unhealthy and unsafe conditions for people with respiratory ailments.

“To make it worse, there is limited awareness about indoor air pollution in India and the health hazards it poses,” Tarun Sahni, an advisor with IMAPH, said. “More than 1 million people in India die due to indoor air pollution annually. Most people are not aware that cooking, incense, pet dander, aerosols, fumes from paints and upholstery all contribute to indoor air pollution, which can be up to 10 times more dangerous than outdoor air pollution. This is hazardous particularly for those who suffer from respiratory ailments or are susceptible to allergies.”

Honeywell and IMAPH have collaborated to raise awareness about the dangers of indoor air pollution. The Honeywell range of Air Touch air purifiers is designed to help Indian families immediately improve the air they and their loved ones breathe inside their homes.

Honeywell Air Touch air purifiers are designed to address the unique issues with indoor air quality in Indian homes as well as consumer needs and behaviors. IMAPH recommends Air Touch purifiers for their efficacy against different kinds of indoor air pollutants such as sealant, coating, adhesive, cleaning products, perfumes, fuel, airborne particles (PM2.5), bacteria, and odor.  Read more
