It is a surprise that no one in India thought it fit to try and offer standardized eye and dental care across centres and even states— until MyDentist and Vasan set out
Mumbai: It is a surprise that no one in India thought it fit to try and offer standardized eye and dental care across centres and even states, in a country where such care is usually expensive, and highly dependent on individual doctors. Both eye and dental care lend themselves to such standardization for several reasons. Interactions between patients and doctors are usually event-based (think cataract surgery, root canal treatment, an eye check-up); there is a significant level of automation; and processes can be easily made uniform and repeated. “Every single citizen has to go to an ophthalmologist, and with a population of 1.2 billion, the demand for healthcare is huge. There is no single large services provider in eye care," said A.M. Arun, the chairman of Vasan Healthcare.
