Tata 1mg, India’s largest digital health platform announced a strategic partnership with Assam Cancer Care Foundation (ACCF), a joint initiative of the Assam Government and Tata Trusts, to open hospital pharmacies, at the inauguration of seven cancer care hospitals in Assam earlier this week, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in the presence of other dignitaries.
Tata 1mg has been chosen by ACCF as its preferred partner to set-up and run in-house pharmacies in different cancer care hospitals under the foundation, and to ensure supply of medicines and other medical supplies to the foundation. Tata 1mg shall bring in analytics-based modern inventory management methods, and provide ACCF and its patients access to best-in-class technologies, patient assistance programs and value added services to deliver a world class experience.
Building on its expertise in the diagnostics sector, Tata 1mg is also planning to partner with ACCF to provide multiple skill development initiatives for local youth who are keen to learn and pursue careers in the healthcare sector. Graduates from these courses will also help in supporting the requirements for skilled healthcare professionals in the upcoming cancer hospitals being planned in Assam under ACCF.
Speaking about their vision, Prashant Tandon, Co-Founder and CEO, Tata 1mg, said, “We are delighted to partner with ACCF for pharmacy services, and will continue to strive to provide seamless access to affordable, quality healthcare for every Indian.
