Sushrat Foundation is working on the following simple problems and creating solutions. Incase you would like to pitch in with ideas, time or references, please contact us.
- Patient Flow through Hospital
Reduce the number of places a patient needs to go and provide correct signages, timing, instructions to reduce the time a patient has to spend to achieve a task
- Staff Soft Skills
Staff needs to be sensitized on how to interact with patients and relatives, how to answer difficult questions and direct them to the right person for escalation
- Preventing leakages of services
How do you ensure patients are not sent out of the hospital to buy medicines, get tests and scans or completely sent out to a private hospital for treatment? This can be due to both -> Corruption or unavailability of services
- Staff Attendance
To ensure staff comes to work every day, stays for 8 hours, doesn’t leave in the middle for a few hours and comes back.
- Equipment Uptime / Total Preventive Maintainance
While in theory, regular maintenance and repair of machines ensure they are available and in use always, in a government setup this is practically not achieved. Tenders are given off to low-quality organizations who may never show up or do a substandard job.
