Wockhardt Hospitals signs

Wockhardt Hospitals Limited (Wockhardt), a large chain of multi-speciality and referral hospitals across the country, has engaged PurpleTeal Technologies India Pvt. Ltd. to provide value added healthcare services to their patients. Wockhardt hopes to gain significant differentiation by helping their patients take care of their health after they are discharged from the hospital.

Wockhardt is currently implementing pilots in the Endocrinology and Neurology departments, where patients are registered for ongoing messages encouraging them to follow doctor's orders. In contrast with the current practice of handing out a 'Discharge Form' with numerous instructions which are seldom followed, selected Endocrinology and Neurology patients will be registered for the PurpleTeal Customized Services for Wockhardt Endocrinology and Neurology respectively.

  • Appointments for timely follow-ups, procedures, radiology, lab tests or other investigations
  • Self-management tasks like observing wound healing, adverse effects or symptoms and taking required action
  • Helping them follow diet restrictions, go for exercise, and other health-enhancement activities

By helping patients follow their doctor's orders better and helping them stay vigilant after surgery or treatment, Wockhardt wishes to improve patient recovery.
