Participatory Medicine - a new way of looking at healthcare

The Indian healthcare system has become sick. Doctors are illness experts – and not healthcare experts. Healthcare needs to learn from the revolution which has occurred in microfinancing. When given money and the freedom to use it as they see fit , even very poor people have come up with remarkably innovative ideas which could never have been planned, designed or anticipated by the traditional experts - bankers!

Information Therapy - the right information at the right time for the right person - can be powerful medicine ! Ideally, every clinic , hospital, pharmacy and diagnostic center should have a patient education resource center, where people can find information on their health problem .

This new model is called Participatory Medicine - and HELP is proud to be an Innovator Organisation in the Society for Participatory Medicine !
