eSwasthya Working Model<br />Local literate women (PiramalSwasthyaSevaks) are recruited undergo a rigorous training programme in which they are trained to collect simple diagnostic information, preventive medicine, first-aid and customer service. <br />These women are given a medical kit, marketing material and a mobile phone. They are then assisted in setting up a tele-clinic (Piramal e-Swasthya Centre) at their own homes.<br />Villagers who feel ill come to the Piramal e-SwasthyaCenter or are visited by the PiramalSwasthyaSevak. After talking to and examining the patient, the health care worker communicates this diagnostic data through a cell-phone to a centralized call centre.<br />At the back end, a call centre worker enters the information provided into a simple e-diagnosis system, which generates an automated response with the recommended prescription and treatment. Doctors manning the call centre also validate this. <br />The total treatment costs between Rs.30 - Rs.50 depending on the medical condition. The Piramal e-Swasthya Centre is also a village level pharmacy stocked with medicines necessary to fill the basic prescriptions recommended by the call centre. If the ailment appears serious, the call centre recommends that the patient visit a secondary or tertiary healthcare facility immediately.<br />The healthcare worker also conducts preventive health workshops, which generate awareness about issues such as sanitation, nutrition and first aid.<br />
Prescription communicated to the PSS over the phone and SMS and she dispenses medicines from the kit provided.</li></li></ul><li>PiramalSwasthyaSahayika(PSS)<br /><ul><li>Promoting Health Entrepreneurship and Woman Empowerment.
