Journey of Sunburst Healthcare 

Dr. Sujata Malik says, “I started my entrepreneurial journey quite late and I have been in the healthcare industry for 30 years. I know healthcare as an insider and being an insider I always know there are some gaps. The gaps remain unaddressed. The health care providers do not look at that aspect of healthcare where there are no follow-ups. This was always on my mind. This motivated me to do something in healthcare. Home healthcare remains unaddressed and there are very few providers who provide quality home healthcare. These were some of the thoughts on which I could make a mark at home healthcare. Therefore, in 2017, Sunburst was founded. It has been a quite an enjoyable entrepreneurial journey with great learning.”

USP of Sunburst Healthcare 

Dr. Sujata Malik informs, “We are a home healthcare service company. Healthcare at home is what we provide. There is no specific age group of patients that we are targeting. We focus on home healthcare as follows- 

Post-discharge care  Post-surgical care  Palliative care  Elderly care  Care for Everybody  Nutrition services  Teleconsultation Nursing care at home  Physiotherapy  Applications of home healthcare

We are focusing on virtual home health care and in-person care is our USP.”

New offering and service by Sunburst Healthcare 

Dr. Sujata Malik states, “Our target audience is everyone who needs healthcare. The multitude of applications of home healthcare starting from labs, pharmacies, consultation. We want to specialize in some areas that are unaddressed for example, second opinions and patient advisory services.

to make the technology agile, quicker, and smarter To have an establishment in India.”
