After spending about a decade in United States, and managing the Asia Pacific region for kidney care products, Shashank realized that his knowledge and expertise were more required in hinterlands of India and not in a cabin of a multi national company.

The ground work began with a 3 month collaboration with Ashwini Kidney Dialysis Center, Nagpur under the mentorship and guidance of renowned Nephrologist Dr. Dhananjay Ookalkar. The solutions to challenges and opportunities related to patient care, cost effective management, and improved internal processes began and took shape.
