Arogya Raksha Yojana (ARY) Clinics

Delivering on its commitment to affordable healthcare, Biocon Foundation has been setting up ARY Clinics in areas where large numbers of people are enrolled under the ARY Health Micro Insurance program. These Clinics have been set up to make primary healthcare facilities more accessible and more affordable for surrounding communities. Supporting the ARY micro insurance program, the Clinics guide member patients to network hospitals and help them avail of the benefits due to them.

  1. We provide competent clinical care, generic medicines, and basic diagnostic tests. Providing all these services through our network of 9 clinics makes for efficient health management system.
  2. Our clinics constantly work towards improving clinical competencies, through shared standards and protocols
  3. We have a tailor made electronic health records system which will improve patient treatment and management. Each ARY Clinic enters all patient information and treatment details into our electronic record system called the Clinic Management System; this data is stored on a central serve at the Foundation office
  4. We work closely with local PHC's and health officers to optimize delivery to resource poor communities. The government provides ASHA workers to help us in education and tracking of sick people
  5. We provide antenatal/postnatal tracking and mothers are counseled about institutional deliveries which they can access using the ARY Health Insurance Scheme
  6. Clinics serve as referrals for scaling up to hospitals. We actively promote linkage with the ARY Health Insurance Scheme, to ensure that critical illnesses are treated in time by competent medical personnel

Biocon Foundation currently runs 9 ARY clinics in both urban and rural areas. They include:

  • Bangalore City: Austin Town, Krishnarajpuram and Kalkunte
  • Anekal Taluk: Huskur and Hennagara
  • Rest of Karnataka: Chickballapur, Mandya, Kaladgi in Bagalkote and Polali in Mangalore.

We hope to open six clinics this year in Mangalgudda, Tumkur, Kolar, Raichur, Chitradurga and Belgaum.

Each clinic serves a population of 50,000 people living within a range of 10 kms. They organise regular general health check-up camps in remote villages, with our physicians and doctors from Narayana Hrudalaya Hospital, St John's Medical College and Hospital and other network hospitals. Additionally, a mobile diabetic foot van from the Jain Institute of Vascular Sciences, Bangalore, visits each clinic once a month. On the pre-appointed day, patients with diabetes get free foot screening and advice on managing their illness and its treatment. These visits are hugely popular, with more than 100 patients using the service wherever it goes.

The ARY clinics in Kaladgi and Bagalkote Districts of North Karnataka served as anchor points during the Foundation’s Flood Relief effort in October ‘09.

Teams from Biocon Foundation’s health programme held numerous health camps in the flood affected villages of these areas. Our teams also collaborated with government doctors and public health centre’s to ensure maximum reach and effectiveness of relief services. These health camps helped us reach out to more than 5,000 people.

In September 2012, we collaborated with the Department of Community Health, St John’s Medical College and Hospital, to ensure the smooth function of our ARY clinic in Austin Town. We believe that such partnerships are beneficial in providing a full circle of care to the patient.
