Our Mission

We help healthcare organizations make distinctive, lasting, and substantial improvements in their performance, by providing them with the information they need to make data-driven decisions


Our story

Our journey started in the year 2016 with a single-minded mission to make healthcare efficient and process-driven. We created the tools, standards and processes that will help achieve our mission so that we help hospitals to be value-driven and patient-centric.

We spoke to hospitals and healthcare entrepreneurs about the requirement for these services and three months
into our operations, we signed up our first client. That was the beginning and there was no looking back. The first few months itself proved that our offering is much needed by all types of healthcare facilities and healthcare initiatives.

Many ask us why we choose the name ‘Camomile’. The story goes like this- The herb Camomile is consumed as a tea and is known to provide stress relief, calm and good health. At Camomile Healthcare, we aim to remove the stress from hospitals, enhance efficiencies and help them flourish. 


The pain point

Healthcare Organizations/Hospitals are capital intensive projects involving outlays of Rs. 100-Rs. 750 crores (US$15-US$ 100 mn) per project. One in two hospitals is saddled with poor planning, systems or infrastructure, leading to enormous waste of invested capital, delays in execution or a compromised infrastructure that is inefficient to operate. Another change driver is the digital explosion, leading to a rapidly changing patient behavior and regulatory environment.


Solution we created

Camomile Healthcare sensed the tremendous need to provide data-backed advisory services that will help create efficient hospitals to provide patient-centric care. We created one of the best healthcare consulting companies

  • We put together a terrific team to start with, the founders and the specialist teams come with the experience of planning and operating large hospitals and health systems
  • We identified the right technology and automation tools that will help achieve efficiencies and scale
  • Future-proofed the hospitals through design thinking at every stage of the hospital establishment and operations. From identifying the right services mix to architecture, information technology, processes and human resources.

More importantly, we have enabled a culture of innovation that will continuously look for value unlocking opportunities and make them available to the healthcare sector. Consult with the best healthcare organization.
