Supervasi provides year-round medical aid and free medicines to the tribals (Adivasis) of Yeoor, Maharashtra. We diagnose problems, provide Ayurvedic and Alopathic medicines and escort the patients for the various tests required in nearby hospitals. We have trained our tribal apprentices in the various support skills required.
We have also conducted dozens of free health camps, and provided the required treatment and followups. We have used our DoctorMaa system to provide personalized medical aid to residents, and plan to expand the system country-wide.
Supervasi has designed the DoctorMaa Medical System which allows personalized Medical Aid to be given to tribals residents, using AI-based algorithms to detect symtoms and diseases based on reported problems, and then automatically suggest medicines.
DoctorMaa is possible thanks our dedicated tribal volunteers that enter data into the system, by door-to-door collection and bulk data entry of patients from medical camps. Low-cost Allopathic and Ayurvedic medicine is provided to beneficiaries free-of-cost or low-cost, based on their need.
