Max Healthcare, one of North and West India’s largest healthcare providers, has launched a homecare package for patients in Delhi who are Covid-19 positive but show mild symptoms. The 15-day remote monitoring package starts from as little as Rs 333 per day. Advanced monitoring package and extended onsite packages are also available for patients.
Said Dr Sandeep Budhiraja, Group Medical Director, Max Healthcare: “As many as 70 – 80% of coronavirus positive patients show no symptoms or have very mild symptoms. The recovery period for such patients is about 14 - 17 days if proper home isolation guidelines are followed. If someone is Covid-positive and shows mild symptoms, there is no need to immediately rush to a hospital. One can self-isolate in the comfort of their home with our homecare packages specifically designed for Covid patients who do not need hospital admission. The patient- friendly, affordable packages will not only monitor the health of patients right at their home, they will also help prevent over-crowding at hospitals in the time of the pandemic and the attendant risk of the spread of infection to others.”
The packages from Max@Home include an essential medical kit (thermometer, Sp02 probe), daily monitoring of patient vitals with a trained nurse on call twice a day, tele-review with a doctor every third day, case assessment by nurse case-supervisor, guidelines on self- monitoring, isolation, personal and home hygiene, as well as home delivery of medicines.
