Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FICCI) has partnered exclusively with Swasth, not-for-profit consortium of healthcare players aimed at promoting access to healthcare through the recently launched platform of the same name. The FICCI-Swasth partnership aims to promote knowledge sharing in the field of telemedicine and digital health. It will also focus on promoting public-private as well as private sector collaborations.
Swasth is working towards building a comprehensive healthcare solution for the masses by collaborating with relevant State and Central Government bodies as well as nodal agencies. This FICCI-Swasth partnership will enable such collaborations in a more meaningful way. Swasth App is already live with multiple offerings for COVID care which provide 360-degree health services from the safety of one’s home.
Dr Harsh Mahajan, Co-Chair, FICCI Healthservices Committee, said, “FICCI is supporting Swasth- which we believe will drive healthcare inclusion for the country leveraging the best of technology and healthcare. There was a huge need for telemedicine hub to deliver healthcare to far flung areas in the country and COVID has acted as a catalyst to get this partnership started. Swasth is an unprecedented alliance for creating a public good by all major health players and we are very proud to be partnering with them.”
Dr Nandakumar Jairam, a key member of the project team, said, “We are proud to partner with FICCI and work towards building a healthcare solution for the country. We are looking forward to this collaboration so that we can increase our national and global reach. FICCI has worked as a change agent and revolutionized various initiatives for our country. We are positive that together we can create solution for the wellbeing of the larger public.”
