RED.Health announces leadership changes to boost medical operations in India

INDIA – RED.Health is making strategic moves within its executive leadership team with the promotions of Dr. Tausif Thangalvadi to Vice President of Medical Operations, and Dr. Manish Jajodia to Assistant Vice President of Medical Operations of the company.

The appointment of Dr. Tausif Thangalvadi and the elevation of Dr. Manish will be pivotal as RED.Health continues to explore market opportunities and invest in new product development for all business verticals.

In his address, Prabhdeep Singh, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of RED.Health said: “At RED.Health, our vision revolves around building a team of empathetic medical professionals who can handle critical situations with utmost responsibility.”

RED.Health, formerly StanPlus, aims to achieve the core pillars of response technologies during emergencies, namely, access, triage, destination selection, and vital sharing.

Operating across over 550 cities, RED.Health has partnered with over 100 hospitals and up to 200 enterprises, forming an extensive network for ambulance services.

The emergency response company offers bed-to-bed transfers using both road and air ambulances, reiterating its position as the country’s premier ambulance network.

In the leadership changes, RED.Health has made the decision to elevate Dr. Manish Jajodia from the title of Group Medical Director to AVP of Medical Operations.

Dr. Manish Jajodia has held senior leadership roles at leading organizations including serving as a Medical Officer in the Indian Army and working as Head of Emergency and Trauma at Fortis Hospital.

Comparably, Dr. Tausif Thangalvadi has over a decade of expertise in subspecialties of emergency medicine such as disaster medicine and prehospital research.

Dr. Thangalvadi previously served as Group Medical Director at Nura-Ai Health Screening Center before joining RED.Health.

This leadership transition is a natural progression, allowing Dr. Tausif and Dr. Manish to collaborate in providing oversight to the day-to-day medical operations of RED.Health.

I am more than thrilled to welcome Dr. Tausif and Dr. Manish as the leaders of our Medical Operations. Together, they are bringing substantial trauma and emergency care experience to their new roles,” Prabhdeep Singh said.

As part of its instituted leadership changes, RED.Health recently appointed Suhas Kulkarni, a former Uber engineer, as the Chief Product & Technology Officer at the organization.

Shalabh Dang, a former Fortis Healthcare executive, has taken over the role of Chief Business Officer at RED.Health.

These leadership changes come as part of the management mission to transform RED.Health into a readily accessible and comprehensive medical assistance platform for patients.

RED.Health embarks on an ambitious mission to deliver high-quality medical assistance to patients within 8-10 minutes as the ambulance reaches them.

The estimated time of ambulance allocation will be an average of 2 – 5 minutes post the distress call while the ambulance is expected to reach patients in emergency situations within 10 -15 minutes.

The recent organizational changes and new leadership team underpin RED.Health’s commitment to rope in a diverse and accomplished team towards the attainment of its mission to replicate the 911 model.

On the investment side, RED.Health has secured nearly US$22.6Mn from strategic investors such as HealthQuad, Kalaari Capital, and HealthX Capital Singapore, just to name a few.

RED.Health has forged a strategic partnership agreement with Fortis Healthcare on emergency ambulance deployment to reduce response times in the country.

Vijaya Group of Hospitals has entered into a similar collaboration agreement with RED.Health to cater to the needs of the growing population in Chennai.

Commenting on the recent leadership changes, Prabhdeep Singh said: “As we expand into new cities and partner with top-tier hospitals in the country, I have full faith that under their leadership, we will maintain our position as industry leaders among medical professionals.”
