WHAT WE DO
We work in partnership with local support groups with social prescribing. We connect people to community groups and services for practical and emotional support. In that way, people connect with wide range of local agencies, general practice, pharmacies, multi-disciplinary teams, allied health professionals, social care services, voluntary, and community organisations.
Aarogyam (UK) CIC, alongside partners from health, social care and the voluntary sector, are delivering an integrated care programme to bring health and social care services closer together.
One year from foundation has been recognition of our ambitious and innovative approaches to delivering person-centred, coordinated care and support in the UK. For health, care and support to be ‘integrated’, it must be person-centred, coordinated, and tailored to the needs and preferences of the individual, their carer and family. It means moving away from episodic care to a more holistic approach to health, care and support needs, that puts the needs and experience of people at the centre of how services are organised and delivered.
Our vision is that only by ‘working together to deliver better care with the people of the Great Britain’ can we successfully integrate care. A key way of achieving this is making changes to the way health and social care practitioners work in partnership and share information.
We are testing, developing and implementing a number of projects in partnership with clinicians, social care practitioners, service users and patients. We introduce new ways of working that work for them, dispensing with whatever doesn’t work.
These projects include:
building Integrated Networks, integrated teams of health and social care professionals
a comprehensive range of self-care support services
improving information sharing between different agencies to enable more coordinated care
a range of projects to improve care for patients with long-term conditions
offering personal health care
Early care & Support
We are committed to public engagement and our approach places local communities at the heart of all that we do.
Early care offers a range of universal and targeted support to help tackle problems for people and their families as soon as possible.
Family intervention services provide intensive support to families with multiple social, economic, health and behaviour problems.
we work with a diverse range of stakeholders including national and local agencies, universities, civil society organizations.
A community research provides an opportunity between researchers and communities. This can lead to improvement in community health.
Needs assessments are conducted to understand the needs of communities. we use this to develop new services or to evaluate the existing programs.
WHERE WE WORK.
The Integrative Research at Aarogyam engages patients and their families to become active participants in improving their physical, psycho-spiritual and social health. The ultimate goals are to optimize health, quality of life and clinical outcomes through personalized evidence-based clinical care, exceptional research and education. We provide research services as well as reviews on the evidence and safety for the use of herbs, Yoga, Ayurveda, Traditional healing as well as other complementary medicine modalities. Research into integrative therapies continues to reveal the health benefits it can have, supporting the case for its use in health care. Aarogyam (UK) therefore aims to attract outstanding academics to support innovative research ideas, and to further develop its Governance concept and international leadership.
Aarogyam’s long-term research goal is to become one of the most highly visible research centre of excellence worldwide in all of its expert groups.

Qualitative research involves collecting and analysing non-numerical data (e.g., text, video, or audio) to understand concepts, opinions, or experiences.
Action research is used for improving practice. It involves action, evaluation, and critical reflection and based on the evidence gathered, changes in practice are then implemented.
Quantitative research collecting and analysing numerical data. It finds patterns and averages, make predictions, test causal relationships, and generalise results.
Community based participatory research & integrated knowledge translation (IKT) create partnerships between researchers and the people (“knowledge users”)
Mixed methods research collect and analyse both quantitative and qualitative data within the same study mostly used in nursing and healthcare.
A pragmatic study focuses on actual real-world situation. The process of undertaking a pragmatic study is first to identify a problem and view it within its broadest context.
