An innovative partnership has just been announced at the mHealth Summit in Washington DC. Procter and Gamble and Healthpoint Services will join forces under a learning partnership aimed at advancing an innovative model that delivers clean drinking water and quality healthcare services to rural communities in India, with potential to scale around the world. 
Healthpoint Services is led by Ashoka Senior Entrepreneur Al Hammond. It provides rural communities with access to four basic services: clean drinking water, access to qualified doctors via telemedicine supported by two-way video and electronic medical records; advanced on-site diagnostic capability (over 80 tests), enabling evidence-based healthcare; and high-quality medicines via an on-site licensed pharmacy.
