Underserved areas face an acute shortage of trained medical teams and quality diagnostic services. With the help of an Al-enabled platform, we currently facilitate 40,000 patient consultations per month across 15 states of India, reducing primary care costs by 50%. SAMRIDH’s support has enabled us to establish COVID cardio metabolism and nutrition interventions in six states of India.
SAMRIDH’s financial assistance enabled Sevamob to raise “matching grants“ or equal funding from leading corporates and philanthropies. The partnership further unlocked additional debt capital from a financial institution using an outcome-based financing mechanism called Social Success Note which reduces the overall interest component on debt. Through this mechanism SAMRIDH provided the outcome payment upon the achievement of pre-agreed social impact goals, thereby incentivizing Sevamob’s expansion to tier 2 and 3 cities and rural areas. With the help of additional resources unlocked, Sevamob will continue its program beyond the support from SAMRIDH and deliver sustainable impact on improving the primary healthcare ecosystem in India.

Shortage of doctors and inadequate health infrastructure are long-standing barriers to access of healthcare services for rural populations in India. The rapid spread of the COVID-19 crisis diverted essential resources and made trained doctors unavailable, which compromised the delivery of primary healthcare in rural and semi-urban communities. The pandemic, therefore, has highlighted the need for sustained interventions to improve access to quality healthcare services in tier 2 & 3 cities and rural regions.
Intelligence-enabled Healthcare Solution
The scarcity of medical staff and diagnostic services in underserved areas causes delays in treatments and elevates medical expenses for patients. Through Al-powered point-of-care screening, patient data management, and telehealth infrastructure, Sevamob is providing timely diagnostic services which reduce primary care costs by up to 50%. Sevamob is currently working towards strengthening the primary healthcare ecosystem in Tier 2 and 3 cities and rural areas across 15+ states in India. The aim is to decongest hospitals and government facilities by providing at-home screening and treatment for asymptomatic, mild, and moderate patients, and general health check-ups.
