Speaking at the flag off ceremony, Mr. Shankar Seshadri – Senior Director and Business Head – Patient Care & Monitoring Solutions and Ultrasound, Philips India said, “The IntelliSafari drive is an initiative to ensure increasing and convenient access to healthcare in the country. Philips India via this mobile van which recently travelled through Gujarat is dedicated to providing best value healthcare products with advanced technology across Rajasthan as well. We understand the dire need to demonstrate that high end technology does not always imply expensive treatment and IntelliSafari will precisely promise so.”
Dr Pankaj Anand, Head of Critical Care, Manipal Hospitals & Secretary, ISB, Jaipur, said “Having to diagnose a problem with limited available technology has always been the biggest challenge that doctors have had to face over years now. With Philips coming forward and presenting IntelliSafari, hospitals can now direct all their focus on fulfilling the responsibility of providing best healthcare solutions. The latest technology will ensure accurate diagnosis in time at an affordable price for both the hospitals and patients.”
IntelliSafari is a program that gives healthcare providers in non-metros like Jaipur, the opportunity to experience Philip’s advanced expertise and technological solutions, which brings quality healthcare closer to the masses. The expert demonstrators from Philips help doctors and clinicians to validate the usability of these technologies in a ‘real’ day-to-day hospital environment. IntelliSafari was launched by Philips India in July 2012 and reached several Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities in North India in the initial phase. The goal of the program is to bring new life saving technologies closer to the masses at an affordable price.
