The future of healthcare is in the right balance of research, expertise, technology, and empathy. – Mr. Gagan Bhalla
Having been in the healthcare industry for over 20 years, Mr. Gagan Bhalla is well aware of a person’s journey in a healthcare setup. Over the years, he has been tirelessly working toward improving this journey to make it more patient-centric.
Diabetes is a chronic condition that needs lifelong management as uncontrolled and undetected diabetes leads to heart, kidney, eye, and foot complications that end up in unnecessary deaths.
Unfortunately in India, there are more than 100 million people affected by diabetes and prediabetes and most of them are not even aware of their condition. This has led to rampant prevalence of uncontrolled diabetes causing hospitalizations due to serious diabetes complications. Undetected and uncontrolled diabetes is a silent assassin and a precursor to many other acute diseases.
To improve the quality of care and to make this quality care more accessible is the vision and mission of Mr. Gagan Bhalla. The passion and panache he has breathed into Apollo Sugar Clinics has made it possible to invigorate the entire unit to serve people with diabetes. His belief of a good balance of expertise, skilled manpower and technology has worked wonders for Apollo Sugar Clinics.
While managing a chain of clinics delivering world class diabetes care all over the country, Mr. Gagan Bhalla had ensured that every clinic has the best Endocrinologist, Diabetologist, trained specialist staff, diabetes counsellors, and diabetes educators.
All these centers are integrated to the main center in Hyderabad in order to facilitate electronic medical records, and call center support systems for both in-bound and outbound calls.
As an alumni of IIT Mumbai, he believes that technology can go places where human presence is physically not possible and he had ensured that Apollo Sugar Clinics adopted the technology mode to serve patients beyond the clinic.
In order to do this, he has personally supervised the implementation of Apollo Sugar Clinics’ proprietary connected glucometer, Apollo Sugar app, home-care kit, and other technology-based solutions to track patient health parameters. He had ensured that every person with diabetes in the Apollo Sugar Clinics ecosystem gets assured diabetes care and assured outcomes so that they are free from heart, kidney, eye, and foot complications.He is an expert in creating new and successful healthcare businesses, business leaders and improving existing businesses.
