VESAG unveiled its new product ‘VESAG Mobile Diagnostics Watch’ today, a device for aging parents and caregivers. This watch is designed to act as the alert device for the Emergency Health Watch monitoring system described here.
The watch can now be used by an entire family and its members to avail of emergency medical services
more conveniently. Most of the personal emergency response systems available work only for a single
member of the household; a VESAG watch can be used by as many as five members of a family.
All customers will be provided with a unique identification number. With this unique number, they
can access their individual account and retrieve their health data from it. In case the customer does not
have access to internet, they can call the customer care centre for more information.
Customers will be able to chat with other customers through their online account to find out more
about different techniques that others are following to stay healthy. More information on health can be
posted by the customers or VESAG doctors to make the process more interactive and informative.
Customers will be able to set up a visit frequency which will allow the VESAG watch to provide an auto
alert to the customer if the vital statistics are not received on time for further investigation.
VESAG is also planning to set up VESAG Mobile Diagnostics franchise centers in Andhra Pradesh, India.
Here, VESAG will sell a set of devices at minimum rates to the franchise holders. Each of these centers
will provide 17 health parameters for a mere $1 per health check up. VESAG will charge only for the
royalty which will also be as little as $0.15 for each health checkup from each of these franchise centers.
Each of these franchise centers can serve up to 100,000 unique customers.
Senior care centers and elderly home care services companies can sign up for franchise and can now
transfer all the medical data of the patient to the central server by using one set of VESAG medical
gadgets and watch.

VESAG hopes to attain 1000 stores serving 5 million customers across Andhra Pradesh by the end of
2011. VESAG has been able to reduce the extra medical costs that a common man often has to incur in
case of emergencies. By connecting the important medical units with a single device, life has been made
much easier for people who considered their health expenditure to be their greatest liability. VESAG is
also trying to connect the remote villages for providing central healthcare provisions to the people
residing in these areas.
The VESAG services are expected to bring an increase in the health provisions and efficiency from
economies of scale, savings in the cost of service delivery and improved quality of care for its users.
