How Sprint Medical is Changing the Lives of Patients in Remote Areas

We’re extremely passionate about what we do at Sprint Medical because we’ve seen, first-hand, just what a difference our platform can make in the lives of our patients. It’s a core belief of ours that your physical location should not disqualify you from receiving world-class medical care and by leveraging the latest technology, we’re closing that gap slowly but surely. It’s been such a heart-warming journey to be a part of and one that energises us for what’s to come as we expand our operations far and wide.

Let’s talk about one of our patients, Shanti Devi, for example. She lives in Mau-Aima, a very small village that is 50km away from the nearest town. In the village there is extremely limited medical care, with pickings becoming even more dire when you look for medical specializations, and so when she developed chronic diabetes it was an incredibly scary moment for her and her family. They had no idea how they were going to deal with this diagnosis from where they were. It was almost impossible to make the regular commutes into a town where they could access the required care because her husband travelled a lot for work and so the care remained completely out of reach. This was until she found out about Sprint Medical’s super specialty doctors and realized that she didn’t have to travel anywhere. With just one click of a button, she had access to top doctors who were internationally trained and were practicing in top Indian hospitals – those that she simply had no access to. She was able to build a relationship with a world-class doctor from the comfort of her own home and it’s changed everything for her.

All of a sudden, her diabetes is something she feels in control of. She has the support and care that she needs to tackle it and it no longer consumes her life like it once did. Just knowing that she has that care whenever she needs it has freed her from the anxiety and worry that was threatening to ruin her life. And she’s not the only one! Her story is one of many that we’ve heard as we’ve rolled out our technology. It is so incredibly rewarding to see how the lives of patients can be transformed by simply connecting them to the right professionals and empowering them to take control of their medical care.

For so long, those hundreds of millions of people living in remote areas have felt disconnected and disempowered because of where they happened to live. For someone living far from professional medical services, it’s not an understatement to say that you live with an overlying fear that at any moment, you could be called upon to make an arduous, costly journey to seek medical care tens or hundreds of kilometers away. And that’s to say nothing about chronic conditions which require regular consultation. This disconnection often leads to patients ignoring symptoms and avoiding seeking care because it just doesn’t seem practical or possible to them. All this does, in essence, is make things worse over the long run. It kicks the can down the road.

Our platform helps to solve these problems. We’ve shown that you can have access to world-class care with the click of a button and once we show this to patients, we see their eyes light up. All of a sudden, they are empowered to take control of their care and they can make the right decisions for their long-term health without having to drain their bank balance in long, arduous journeys. They can build solid relationships with care providers that can look after them and their families no matter where they happen to live. This technology removes that anxiety and fear of being stranded – because they can be comforted by the fact that specialty doctors are just a call away.

This is why we’re so excited about what we’re doing at Sprint Medical. We have a calling to serve these people that have been mostly ignored by the traditional medical system and give them access to the same level of care that is afforded to everyone else. www.sprintmedical.in is the lead domino that leads to them living much more fulfilling and meaningful lives because they don’t have to worry about being blindsided by a medical condition that they can’t reasonably treat. They can get ahead of things, before they become bigger problems, because the barriers to care have been eliminated. They can feel a sense of autonomy that was never before possible as they act proactively, rather than as a last-ditch effort to react when it’s too late.

It is quite literally changing lives. And we’re just getting started.
