Glocal Healthcare Systems is a process and technology-based healthcare platform focused on delivering accessible, affordable and accountable healthcare. It was founded in 2010 in response to the vast need for healthcare services in India, especially in rural areas where more than 28 million people living in remote and under-served areas are estimated not to have access to affordable and accountable healthcare services. Glocal Healthcare Systems is credited with achieving vast improvements in healthcare service delivery. Over the past ten years, the company has built ten fully functional 100-bed multi-speciality hospitals in states like Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Odisha and West Bengal. It has set up 250 digital dispensaries, which provide video consultations, examination, investigations and automated medicine dispensing. These doctor-less clinics need only nurses to run them but provide comprehensive primary care at prices below $5 per episode. Glocal Healthcare Systems models have also been implemented in Canada, Ghana, Mali, Mongolia, Nigeria.
