The ShubhArogya solution is anchored on two pillars

The ShubhaArogya solution is a disruptive one because it has been developed to help those who do not have or have limited access to quality medical care. While the backend consists of reliable and sturdy hardware and proprietary software, the front end is a user-friendly and convenient app that can be downloaded on some of the most basic smart mobile phones.

Robust Hardware

Erfolg has tied up with PublicHeal th Foundation of India (PHFI) for sourcing the sturdy Swasthya Slates, which enable the field staff to conduct 13 basic medical tests on the spot . PHFI also trains our Health Coordinators to use the Point-of-Care Diagnostic technology professionally and with precision.

Secure Software

The secure software uses telemedicine technology that allows the ShubhaArogya Health Coordinator to schedule and organize doctor consul tations, maintain patient prof iles, source and deliver medicines prescribed, track patient progress, store patient records and schedule follow-ups.

Convenient Mobile Platform

With just an app that can be downloaded on to their phones, the patients, doctors, specialists and pharma companies can create a complete health care ecosystem that provides remotely-based people access to end- to-end primary health care.

The ShubhAarogya feet-on-street team is the backbone of the company since it sustains the whole business. Each field worker undergoes rigorous training before being deployed.

Each Rural Health Coordinator handles five villages – a mandal – and schedules a visit to each village once every week and of course during health emergencies.

A science graduate with a management degree, KV started his career as a medical representative with Alkem Laboratories. Though brief, the stint introduced him to what has today become critical knowledge in driving growth and business at Erfolg. With over 15 years working in leading banks like Grindlays and Standard Chartered, , KV went on to join Sundaram Housing where his exposure to rural India began. In 2007, he joined SKS Microfinance where he led operations. A successful IPO followed by the crisis that struck the microfinance industry in 2010, he saw the company through its revival and rebirth as Bharat Financial Inclusion Ltd. These years gave him a deep understanding of the Indian rural markets and the importance of being agile and responsive to operational crises.
