IIM Ahmedabad Steps into Healthcare

The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad, has developed a model for improving urban health services in collaboration with the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC).

The IIM’s Centre for Management of Health Services (CMHS) has set up the Urban Health Care (UHC) model to special focus on urban poor, living in slums and chawls. The IIM-A model is based on extensive use of Geographic Information System (GIS) to locate urban health centres in each ward, to ensure availability, access, afford ability and equity of healthcare services. The model is already implemented in the Vasna part of the capital and is getting a good response from the users. According to Prof Ramani, the Vasna Urban Health Centre is the first of its kind in India providing a comprehensive line of services under one roof including consultation, lab and radiology services, medication, and referral services.
