About Care Companion Program
The Care Companion Program is an in-hospital program that repositions the family member as a critical component of taking care of the patient. The program was developed by innovators from Stanford University and since 2013 it has touched the lives of more than 400,000 families through 100+ hospitals in India. In partnership with several state governments and Unicef, Yosaid is expanding the CCP program to district hospitals in Karnataka, Telangana & Andhra Pradesh.
Hospital coordinators visit the partner hospitals and collect patients/families contact details, interview patients during times of major hospitalization so that they can be followed up with post-discharge.
They also conduct phone interviews with families to understand the impact of CCP for improving design. They use simple mobile technologies for quick data-entry.
