A key note from the founder of Integrated Personalized Preventive Health Care Clinic
The Healthcare system for long has been focusing on Curative healthcare than on Preventive health care. Curative health care focuses on treatment (medical or surgical) once the problem has evolved whereas preventive health care focuses on treatment before a problem arises. The term Prevention is a very commonly used term in healthcare, but simply put "It is a path less travelled". The 'What's' in preventive health care are common, but the 'How's' are not! One of the areas where preventive approach will be very effective is in the management of chronic diseases or non-communicable diseases. Chronic diseases such as Diabetes, hypertension, Obesity, Heart attacks, strokes, etc. do not have an immediate cure. These have to be managed by adopting the preventive approach in an integrated and personalized manner.
Our preventive services focus mainly on chronic diseases and we work out a customized programme based on your risk factors identified in the process of healthcare screening. Prevention remains the cornerstone of our system and we work towards offering quality care to our customers.
