About Health Basix:
Health Basix is a digital healthcare and pediatric platform. Keeping in mind the digital age and the amount of time kids spend on the internet, Swathy and her team did some research around child health and it’s connection with growing technology. The shocking statistics gave rise to an urgent need to set up something that could grab the attention of parents to help their kids. This led to Health Basix, a clinic that carries out a holistic health evaluation of children to point out their strengths and weaknesses. Health Basix also connects their clients to the right resources where they can get the right help.

Pediatric Healthcare Delivery is
Many children’s health conditions, particularly infectious and mental health problems, are acknowledged only after they produce serious adverse consequences, such as academic failure, or school violence. This Band-Aid approach makes it hard to develop a coherent strategy for preventing children’s health problems.
For kids, fragmentation in care coordination poses significant risks to their health. For healthcare organizations, fragmentation in care results in higher costs. Patients and healthcare organizations can all benefit from a synced system of care.
