This video succinctly captures the inspiring journey of Dr. Devi Shetty who started Narayana Hrudayalaya in 2001 as a 250-bed cardiac hospital. Now it is a multi-specialty network of 25 hospitals in 31 cities dispensing high quality, affordable healthcare. The saga is as much about economies of scale as it is about business altruism. More

The essence and success of Narayana Health is in the redesigning of conventional medical processes into an assembly line approach that rests on four main pillars:

Process Innovation: Transforming the complex open-heart surgery process and bringing down cost.
Economies of Scale: High volumes to reduce the unit cost of surgery
Information Technology: IT ensures rapid transmission of data and prompt action.
Supply Chain Efficiency: Streamlined admin & clinical functions, process innovation, & economies of scale.
