World Class Healthcare



An idea conceived by Dr Ashish Rawandale-Patil; Uroinnovation Foundation has established a platform for healthcare professionals to “Develop and strengthen grassroot technological innovations in the field of Medicine”


Doctors are known globally for there fertile brains and as Dr Ashish interacted with his fellow colleagues he found that many of them had brilliant ideas. Some ideas reached academic forums but majority of them were buried in the daily chores of clinical practice. A miniscule of innovations actually reached the first prototype stage and even fewer reached production and distribution stage. End result -“Unsung heroes of the medical community”. The idea vide Uroinnovation Foundation was to conceive a group of innovators in order to bring about a symbiotic innovative activity, screen ideas, develop them and try to “mature an idea into the final innovation”


  • To conglomeralate a creative and knowledge based group of healthcare professionals
  • To expand space for grassroot technological innovators in order to meet the socioeconomic and clinical needs of medical  colleagues
  • To develop a “Think tank” which would facilitate the innovators to select like minded brain partners and augment their ideas collectively.
  • To create a consented “Brain chain” to evolve an idea into a group generated sustainable technology
  • Together become leaders of sustainable ideas and technologies.
  • To preserve the intelectual rights of the innovator and the contributors in the “Thinktank”.
  • To let the innovators disseminate their innovations through name, acclaim, academic forums, commercial and non-commercial channels generating incentives for them and others involved in the value chain.
