A CSIR National Healthcare Supply Chain Portal named as “Aarogyapath” has been launched. “Aarogyapath” is an information platform developed by CSIR in partnership with Sarvodaya Infotech and institutional users and manufacturers / authorized suppliers of healthcare essentials. The portal has been launched with a vision of “providing a path which leads one on a journey towards Aarogya (healthy life)”. The platform is expected to fill the critical gaps in last-mile delivery of patient care within India via improved availability and affordability of healthcare supplies.
The “Aarogyapath” portal will ensure single-point availability of key healthcare goods which would be helpful to customers in addressing various issues such as time-consuming processes to identify good quality products, lack of awareness about the latest product launches, dependence on limited suppliers, etc. The platform would serve manufacturers & suppliers to reach a wide network of customers efficiently by reducing the gaps in connectivity between them and potential demand centers. Hence it will facilitate a real-time availability of critical healthcare supplies.
