Bangalore Medicare Camp
Why we do
Living in harsh conditions in the slums in urban Bangalore are many people with nowhere to go when they fall sick. The corporate hospitals of today don’t accommodate the needs of the needy and sick who knock on their doors seeking help charging exorbitant amounts for even basic Medicare. Lot of these people die often not taking care of their health and don’t even know if they are sick. Sometimes they even ignore symptoms of severe health issues. To make it worse are the social evils of drinking and smoking which contribute to their health problems.
We at Sai Aashraya decided to serve these brethren who needed access to quality Medicare. A monthly Super Specialty Medical Camp was the idea we came up with. In a week, the camp was ready to be organized and temporary rooms were constructed in the ISRO Community Hall and a red carpet was laid out welcoming the patients.
Following are some of the Departments in our Medicare Camp: -
Cardiology (Examination and Treatment)
Gynaecology (OB/GYN Examination and Treatment)
Opthalmology (Vision and Retina Screening and Treatment)
Periodic Cancer Screening
Our camp is equipped with State of the Art equipment including ECG, 2D Echocardiography with Colour Doppler. An in house sample collection facility enables us to process blood work efficiently. Most of the lab reports are given in half a day's time.
In These Camps. Medicines for a month are given to the Patients and all this free of charge. We store all the Patients’ Records in the cloud and follow up with Patients regularly. On an average 700 patients attend these camps with 200 Children and 500 Adults being treated by our specialist team of Doctors.
What we do
The Bangalore Medicare was Sai Aashraya's first initiative in Medicare and in about 5 years from that first Medicare Camp, we have treated about 60,000 patients across India in the most diverse, challenging, and under-served locations and the inflow of Patients is increasing manifold. Many severe cases of heart issues, neurological issues have been detected early and the Patients are on the road to recovery. Patients today walk in healthier and want to volunteer in Sai Aashraya’s activities.
