CarePod: Decentralizing Primary Care

Problem Statement: 

  • Primary healthcare is very much centralized and inaccessible to a vast section of the world

  • Access is also limited by the lack of clinicians and the abysmal patient to clinician ratios

  • Increasing the number of clinicians solves the problem linearly i.e. for every clinician you add, you can only serve ‘x’ number of people (# of patients served = n*number of clinicians).



  • Much of the primary healthcare infrastructure does not need to be locked behind large centralized locations

  • The ‘Point of Care’ can be closer to the patients

  • The impact of a clinician need not be linear, it can be exponential (# of patients served = n^[number of clinicians])

    • Separating and multiplying the ‘hands’ of a clinician from the brain of a clinician increases impact

    • This can be done if clinicians can ‘codify’ their decision making and scale it using software to the point of delivery.
