Geriatric Care Network(GCN) – The Social Enterprise from HealtheLife selected for the 2018 Samsung Global Startup Acceleration Program(GSAP)

The pioneer in cloud-based standards compliant Electronic Health Records(EHR) platform in India, HealtheLife has added another feather to its hat. We are happy to share that our social enterprise venture Geriatric Care Network(GCN) has been officially selected as one of the 20 startups to participate in the 2018 Samsung Global Accelerator Program.

The program is aimed at helping early stage startups and fresh business ideas successfully navigate the initial years for growth and expansion. It is based on the realization that several startups fail within the first five years of establishment due to lack of sustainable business models or availability of technology. With an intention to foster an ecosystem for growth for such potential startups, the accelerator program involves mentoring the startups on crucial aspects of business, setup bootcamp for up-skilling, offer a platform for the startups to pitch their ideas and business, fetch global incubation support and attend conferences.

An initiative from the Corporate Social Responsibility Program from Samsung Electronics, this program is simultaneously conducted across many countries including Indonesia, India, Nepal, South Africa and Malaysia. GCN from HealtheLife is one of the business ideas that will be part of the Indian leg of this prestigious program this year(2018).

The idea that bagged this deserving recognition

At HealtheLife, we realize that, our fundamental belief in creating a sustainable social impact and value through our work & ideas has been key to our selection for the program.

With the advances in modern health care, the percentage of Elderly in societies across the world including India, are growing, and ensuring proper care for them is emerging as an area that needs immediate attention and focus. The current health care systems for the elderly are primarily focused on the critical and chronic care paradigm, with very little serious attempt at long term wellness & preventive solutions. GCN focuses on bridging this gap using Ayurveda made available through a localized and distributed network of professionals.

By combining the powers of Ayurveda and the potential of modern-day technology, GCN provides better preventive and wellness focused health care solutions economically at distributed locations. With this, we would make health care more accessible, available and affordable for the elderly.

We foresee exciting days in the program, where we hope to be mentored by experienced professionals from across the globe and gain the exposure needed to achieve our envisioned goals. Stay with us as we keep giving you constant updates on our experience at the accelerator program.
