  • The company taking the franchise route to scale up operations and clinic count India-wide
  • Talks are already on with angel investors and the CSR wing of corporates for investments

NEW DELHI / February 14, 2022 – Delhi-based health-tech startup My Family First intends to open 500 Digitally Enabled Smart Health (DESH) clinics in rural areas across the country in the next two years to connect patients in remote villages and towns with medical specialists in metro cites. The company, which began operations in mid-2021, has already opened 30 DESH clinics across Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, and Madya Pradesh through the franchising route.

The DESH Clinics comprise India’s first integrated telehealth service. These use digital technology and IoT-based devices to directly connect doctors in cities with patients in the rural hinterland, solving the problem of scarcity of qualified doctors in villages and semi-urban regions. Patients can benefit from the best medical advice right at their doorsteps at affordable prices and do not need to travel to cities.

Said Dr. (Maj) Harshita Surange, Founder & CEO, DESH Clinics: “Teleconsultation is the key to rural healthcare. DESH clinics are equipped with diagnostic equipment and IoT-based PoC devices. They are specially designed to provide audio-video consultation, conduct pathology tests, and dispense medicines. These offer an integrated solution that includes teleconsultation, pharmacy, diagnostics, and daycare facilities. The clinics connect patients with specialists in areas like ENT, fertility, skin diseases, heart diseases, back pain, chronic pain, and cancer. Child specialists, gynecologists, and obstetricians are also available for tele-consultation.”
