Bengaluru-based healthcare startup Even, which recently raised additional funding of $15 million, has instituted a medical board consisting of globally celebrated healthcare professionals to oversee its clinical protocols in a bid to make primary care as good and efficient as in high-income countries.
The board will take stock of the best clinical practices around the world and help Even doctors design care guidelines for members that result in marked positive patient outcomes.
With this, Even hopes to design a blueprint for evidence-based care in India and show what good care looks like. The closest example of what the healthcare provider is trying to do is the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines in England that help healthcare professionals prevent illnesses in patients using the best available evidence for specific conditions in specific people living a specific type of lifestyle.
This board will oversee these practices alongside Even doctors and evolve its care programmes to the highest standards.
Even has inducted Dr Martin Gilbert, Senior Advisor to the Global Healthcare practice at The Boston Consulting Group in California, Dr Abha Agarwal, Chief Medical Officer at Humboldt Park Health in Chicago, Dr Archit C Bhatt, Managing Director at Providence Stroke Centre in Portland, Col Binu Sharma, Senior Director at Max Healthcare Institute in Delhi, Dr Umesh M. Sharma, Managing Director at the Mayo Clinic in New York, and Dr Balu Gadhe, MD - Internal Medicine, University of Southern California, to its diverse medical board.
Collectively, the highly qualified team of medical professionals has extensive expertise in healthcare, including neurology, physiology, internal medicine, nursing, healthcare management, consulting, and health IT.
