Pune, 23 April 2021: Increasing Covid-19 cases have led to the unavailability of beds in the hospital. When not all require hospital admission, all the cases do require guidance by experts and round-the-clock monitoring on their health parameters.

As there is a relentless surge in Covid-19 cases during the prevailing second wave of the pandemic, city-based hospitals have started offering home care packages to patients. They are providing a special quarantine kit along with video consultation with doctors.

When patients are in fear because of many factors happening around, HealYos – a home healthcare company powered by Sancheti hospital, has come up with a big relief for patients in need.

They are offering a 14-day Covid home care plan at the cheapest rate in the city. They are providing special home quarantine kits to those who are availing of their services which are priced at Rs 1499 for 14 days. Under the home care package they are offering doctors consultation (3 times), medicine prescription, blood test analysis, daily monitoring (twice a day), physiotherapy and nutritional counselling (once).

Rupal Sancheti, Director of HealYos Physiotherapy and Sancheti Hospital, said, “Not all patients require hospitalisation. But all patients need constant support, monitoring and counselling by experts as there is a lot of panic around us these days. In order to help Covid-19 patients with expert support at affordable prices we recently launched home health care services for covid patients. We have a panel of doctors, chest physiotherapists and nutritionists who are calling up patients twice a day for vital monitoring, follow up and feedback. We are also doing laboratory findings and analysis, radiology findings and analysis.”

Apart from this, a few hospitals are also offering patients consultation over the phone or video. Experts said that such help is crucial in these times of pandemic when there is panic and fear among people.

Dr H K Sale, executive Director of Noble Hospital, said, “The charges that we are taking are very nominal. We are asking patients to pay for teleconsultation. During teleconsultation, we are giving them all the guidelines for home isolation. Whenever any patient needs any consultation, our experts are available for teleconsultation.”
