Throwing light on the future of the healthcare industry, Mr. Anand Shrivastava, Chairman, Maharishi Ayurveda, said, “COVID-19 has taught us so many lessons in healthcare such as how to continue our lives in the emerging new normal as it is going to stay with us. Especially, it has taught us that we can’t live with comorbid conditions now. We need to make our immunity stronger.”
Elaborating on the essence of ‘Home Care’, Mr Vivek Srivastava, Co-Founder & CEO, HealthCare at Home, said, “There has been a dramatic change in the acceptance of Home Care in the wake of the outbreak of COVID-19. A large number of people are opting for Home Care and we have been receiving an increased number of queries. We are the first to launch Home Isolation services in the country, and running it for all Fortis Hospitals across the country and for Delhi government as well.”
“We need to learn how to live with the emerging new normal. Don’t fear, think positive and be positive. In the tough times of COVID, there has been a demand of lots of medical supply. We are running 400 home offices to facilitate the supply chain. We are also using drone services to improve the possible supply of essential medical devices and consumables in remote and hilly areas”, said, Mr Vivek Tiwari, Founder & CEO, Medikabazaar.
