Several of the group's hospitals in India have been among the first in India to receive a form of international healthcare accreditation, in their case by the American-based Joint Commission International (JCI).[1] The Hyderabad hospital was the first in the world, outside the US, to receive JCI's Disease- or Condition-Specific Care (DCSC) Certification in addition to general accreditation when it received this for its Acute Stroke treatment in 2006.[2]. However, they have not as yet acquired international accreditation from any hospital accreditation group from outside of the USA. The group has developed services in telemedicine, after starting a pilot project in 2000 in Dr Pratap C. Reddy's own home village.[3] It is now the largest telemedicine provider in India with 71 centres.[4] Another venture of the group is Apollo Health Street, a global healthcare services company. It offers business process outsourcing (BPO)and IT services internationally, operating out of three countries - the United States, the United Kingdom, and three centres in India (Hyderabad, New Delhi, and Chennai).
