Business Wire India GenWorks Health celebrated its 9th Anniversary recently with great fervour in Bengaluru. The celebrations aptly themed “Yeh Dil Maange More” was attended by Customers, Partners, Investors and Employees.
Addressing the gathering in his opening note Mr S Ganesh Prasad, Founder, MD & CEO GenWorks said, “GenWorks was created to build distribution presence for GE & to enable low resource settings with solutions for Affordable access. In the beginning, we expanded distribution access and played a significant role to broad base & build our portfolio for solutions that impact prevention and early health. GenWorks, has over the years redefined its role as a customer-centric organisation, improving productivity, efficiency and clinical outcomes for our customers. At every turn, we have reinvented ourselves to serve our target segments better.”
He further mentioned, “Covid-19 disruption exposed the gaps in Healthcare delivery across the country – fundamental to which was delivering care closer to homes. The primary healthcare system in our country was almost non-existent due to migration of specialists to larger hospitals. As a result, these larger hospitals got overwhelmed during the crisis and could not serve the surging demand. The healthcare system has now reset to the new normal, with a larger willingness to collaborate. With the growing health awareness, changing attitude towards preventive healthcare and an increasing onset of lifestyle diseases, we clearly see this as a big opportunity that GenWorks can impact for Affordable access.”
Outlining the next steps in the formidable GenWorks journey Mr Ganesh Prasad added, “We believe Technology & Connected care will play a significant role for healthcare providers to take healthcare delivery closer to homes and diagnostics at home. This need is driven by the fact that we cannot expand physical and specialist infrastructure.
As we align ourselves to support this change, GenWorks has identified the following care areas that can be a big impact.
