Dear Friends, my colleagues, patients, citizens of India

Greetings from Virinchi Hospitals!

I take this opportunity to introduce you to a unique initiative of Right to Science that is being implemented at Virinchi Hospitals.

Right to Science very simply stated, is a basic human right to enjoy benefits of scientific progress and its applications. Applied to the medical science, it allows us to offer to our patients the best and the latest innovations, -of course in an evidence-based manner and with the benefit of patient as a core principle.

What a perfect mix this is when combined with a team of world-class top-notch doctors driven to do the best for their patients, which Virinchi Hospitals has!

As doctors or patients, we have seen government systems where it takes a whole lifetime or a whole career to be able to introduce and integrate even a single novel technology into the practice. At the other extreme are Equipment manufacturers & pharma companies that push hospitals to inculcate/purchase all and every new and costly equipment/drug without correlation to either patient’s unmet needs or ability to pay while claiming benefit over existing modes.

Right to Science at Virinchi Hospitals is an initiative to balance just that.

The process is simple. A novel innovation/technique/biomarker is identified- it is assessed thoroughly for scientific evidence and whether it meets the unmet demand of the patients in term of diagnosis or therapy, whether it fits into the “do-no-harm” principle and is assessed for relevance to our larger patient pool. If it is found to have such utility, measures are taken to offer it to our patients at lowest cost with due volume negotiation with the innovator. It’s the objective of the RTS initiative to provide, every single innovation that a patient can benefit from, to be made available to our patients in India, here at Virinchi Hospitals.

Another exciting aspect of RTS which we have envisioned as our founding principles is in the areas of Regenerative medicine, Genetics, Cell culture, Transplant medicine, Clinical trials and collaborative clinical research.

We look at these as the future of personalised medicine and as the medical revolution that awaits mankind.

But it has been said that it takes 17 years and a Billion dollars for clinical adoption of a scientific discovery.

17 years!

Considering the knowledge boom, the increase in number of well-designed scientific trials and innovations, this number ought to go down and we have a unique opportunity to be vehicles for this change. In fact, world over, there are measures being introduced to reduce this gap for the benefit of humanity.

10 years ago, my grandfather died – blind for the last years of his life due to complications of diabetic retinopathy. He spent these last years in repeated visits to numerous eye hospitals- travelling to every city and every doctor that was well spoken of for a cure to his blindness- with no respite. In the end, he was more shattered by his dependency due to the blindness than any other illness. It pains me to think that just a year later, the revolutionary anti VEGF therapy entered India. More painful is the fact that enough evidence was available many years before it did so.

It seems like a humongous task though- keeping at pace with every single innovation in the world what with the large number of diseases mankind can suffer from and the large number of studies being done. Add to that, the fact that in routine practice, as clinicians, doctors are faced with several challenges that demand our time. But working as a team we are determined that we can do this.

As I see it, we have the best brains of clinicians and surgeons, a well-established in-house research organisation in the form of Vivo Biotech-offering drug development & discovery services to companies world-wide, an IT team that’s working full time for the benefit of the hospital Electronic Medical records, and a team of dedicated science graduates ready to evolve and to assist clinicians in fulfilling this dream of Right to Science.

Although traditionally it is safe practice to do what we have been comfortable in doing, RTS demands of us to feel vulnerable again yet primarily protecting the interests of the patient. It is what we, if we were patients, would want our doctors to offer to us.

RTS is rational -beautifully driven by evidence, humble yet ambitious, it is science at its very best-it is us at our very best, and essentially cannot function without a clear intent, purpose and determination.

To quote Tuli Kupferberg  – “When patterns are broken, new worlds emerge!”

We look forward to bringing in this new world and making it possible with unstinting & able support from our fantastic faculty.

I urge the reader to watch this space for exciting updates from our team

Best Regards

ABOUT RIGHT TO SCIENCE

Every citizen should have the “Right to Science”, wherein he or she can have access to all the medical science advancements in diagnosis and therapy, in time to save his or her life.

Why Not? Nothing is more important than human life!

Medical science has grown by leaps and bounds in a multitude of directions, more so, in the last one decade. From soluble stents for cardiac patients to adoptive immunity, check point inhibition for cancer patients, from organ regeneration for liver patients to gene editing for thalassemia patients, from robotic surgeries for inaccessible interventions to continuous telemetry of bio-markers, from single beat CT scan to 3T fMRI, from genome and epigenome based big-data diagnosis to machine-learning based patient similarity studies, from full life medical event book-keeping on smartphones to smart wearables – the remarkable accomplishments of science are redefining our belief of life expectancy and it may not be far, that we may even push the retirement age by a decade, by each passing decade.

Even today, most of these scientific advancements remain inaccessible to large sections of Indians for multiple reasons. It is to bridge this gap that we have undertaken this movement we term “Right to Science”.

Equipment based on future science

3T fMRI, Dual energy 128 slice CT scan, IVUS-FFR Cath Lab and Twin Detector Digital X ray, lab-equipment capable of analysing 15,000 bio-markers.

Right to science in therapy

Future is all about Stem cell based therapies, organ regeneration, adoptive immune therapies, check point inhibition therapies, re-construction surgeries, gene editing, fully-guided surgeries, implants and transplants, 3D printed skeletal scaffolds, bionic prosthetics, biological prosthetics, and nanotechnology for disease detection, drug delivery and cell/tissue corrections.

Diagnosis based on Big Data

What is preferable? Study few parameters and treat based on population statistics or study all parameters and give a personalized treatment.

Personalized Medicine

What works for you based on your genetic construct may not work for others. Personalized medicine with predictive diagnosis to reduce disorders’ incidence, enhance treatment specificity, reduce relapse and reduce overall treatment burden.

Everything is Insured for Everyone

Virinchi has devised a unique model of insurance for even outpatient services for its premium member of the Right to Science Club.

Your Right to Science can be exercised anytime, from anywhere on your mobile:

“Mobile” Video Consultation

Virinchi provides video consultations with doctors via smartphones.

Medical Event Book Keeping

Virinchi’s Mobile app enables each patient to have the complete medical history of every test and hospitalization record on the cloud and as well as on the mobile for the individual and his family for their entire lifetime, which they can zip and forward to any doctor for a second opinion.

Healthcare as a Welcome Experience

Virinchi is a truly paperless ‘mobile-only’ hospital with all front office, nursing and ward processes executed completely on tablets.

ABOUT RIGHT TO SCIENCE

Every citizen should have the “Right to Science”, wherein he or she can have access to all the medical science advancements in diagnosis and therapy, in time to save his or her life.

Why Not? Nothing is more important than human life!

Medical science has grown by leaps and bounds in a multitude of directions, more so, in the last one decade. From soluble stents for cardiac patients to adoptive immunity, check point inhibition for cancer patients, from organ regeneration for liver patients to gene editing for thalassemia patients, from robotic surgeries for inaccessible interventions to continuous telemetry of bio-markers, from single beat CT scan to 3T fMRI, from genome and epigenome based big-data diagnosis to machine-learning based patient similarity studies, from full life medical event book-keeping on smartphones to smart wearables – the remarkable accomplishments of science are redefining our belief of life expectancy and it may not be far, that we may even push the retirement age by a decade, by each passing decade.

Even today, most of these scientific advancements remain inaccessible to large sections of Indians for multiple reasons. It is to bridge this gap that we have undertaken this movement we term “Right to Science”.

Equipment based on future science

3T fMRI, Dual energy 128 slice CT scan, IVUS-FFR Cath Lab and Twin Detector Digital X ray, lab-equipment capable of analysing 15,000 bio-markers.

Right to science in therapy

Future is all about Stem cell based therapies, organ regeneration, adoptive immune therapies, check point inhibition therapies, re-construction surgeries, gene editing, fully-guided surgeries, implants and transplants, 3D printed skeletal scaffolds, bionic prosthetics, biological prosthetics, and nanotechnology for disease detection, drug delivery and cell/tissue corrections.

Diagnosis based on Big Data

What is preferable? Study few parameters and treat based on population statistics or study all parameters and give a personalized treatment.

Personalized Medicine

What works for you based on your genetic construct may not work for others. Personalized medicine with predictive diagnosis to reduce disorders’ incidence, enhance treatment specificity, reduce relapse and reduce overall treatment burden.
