Deloitte today announced it is making available a playbook, to help district administrations address the rising threat of the Omicron COVID variant. The protocols outlined in the playbook can enable governments to quickly scale the health care support and resources required to address surges in COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2) cases. This ‘plug and play’ model recommends supervised home-based care that communities can easily adopt to assist those who are medically able to recover at home.
The playbook builds upon the learnings gained from Niti Aayog, “Sanjeevani Pariyojana”, a supervised, virtual home care initiative launched in Karnal, Haryana, India in May 2021 as well as Deloitte’s experience in South Africa. During the peak of the second wave, the Government of Haryana and Deloitte initiative had helped the people of Karnal quickly access healthcare at home, effectively bringing the fatality rate down by 50 percent. Over 90 percent patients were treated at home or at isolation centres, which helped reduce the pressure on the district hospital, thereby preserving beds for the critically ill. After its success in India, the “Sanjeevani Pariyojana” initiative was also adopted in South Africa and Southeast Asia.
The playbook designed and supported by Deloitte, the Public Health Foundation of India (Dr. K. Srinath Reddy), and the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Haryana (Dr. Dhruva Chaudhry), highlights the importance of collective digital and human interventions.
