In January 2020 we (Dr. Swapneil Parikh and Dr. Rajit Shah) were working on a healthcare startup to support and catalyse a paradigm shift from curative to preventive medicine. Our start up was a few short weeks from going live when we first learnt about a novel coronavirus outbreak in China. This virus was later named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV2) and the disease it caused was named Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Realising that the virus was about to go pandemic, the entire team made the decision to pivot entirely to respond to COVID-19.
In anticipation of a huge strain on the healthcare system, we came up with a pandemic time healthcare solution - MediCircle. It is a novel approach to help patients manage their own illness with minimal intervention from doctors while providing maximum quality of care. MediCircle’s objectives is to allow the healthcare system to focus on the sickest COVID-19 patients while providing quality healthcare for those who can be treated without visiting a doctor. Our process integrates the latest medical guidelines with the most advanced technologies to provide an artificial intelligence health care solution that is at its core deeply human centred. DIY.health will help patients reach a diagnosis and provide them with a state of the art treatment and monitoring plan. In keeping with our human centric philosophy we make two promises; We will provide our patients with the best care and we will never put a profit motive before health.
MediCircle Health's early focus is on COVID-19 patients, we are rapidly expanding to provide patients with lifestyle diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity and tobacco addiction a healthcare solution that keeps them as far away from hospitals as possible. These patients are at highest risk for severe COVID-19 and death and we will endeavour to provide them with quality healthcare in the safety of their homes. This way they can stay safe and get better without increasing the load on the healthcare system. Improving diabetic control, controlling blood pressure, loss of excessive body fat and smoking cessation are not just essential for good health but also reduce the risk of severe COVID-19.
We are Medicircle and service to humanity is our mission.
