Description of this Book

The Aravind Eye Care System reinvented the rules of business to restore sight to the blind. Based in India, it is the world's largest provider of eye care delivers surgical outcomes that equal or surpass those of developed countries - at less than 1 percent of the cost. In thirty-five years it has treated over 32 million patients, the vast majority for free. Those who can pay choose what they pay, there is no paperwork. Refusing to rely on donations, Aravind is self-sustaining highly prof- itable. Its baffling model is the subject of a popular Harvard Business School case study has won admiration from Peter Drucker, Bill Clinton, Muhammud Yunus. Infinite Vision is the first book to probe Aravind's history the distinctive philosophies, practices, values that unleashed its phenomenal success.The authors share Aravind's improbable evolution from an eleven-bed eye clinic founded by Dr. G. Venkataswamy, a retired surgeon with crippled fingers, no money, a magnificent dream. Drawing inspiration from his spirituality, of all things, the low-cost, high-volume, standardized approach of fast-food franchises, Dr. V. his team (which includes thirty-five ophthalmologists from his family) created an or- ganization that has treated everyone from penniless farmers to the president of India. How does Aravind flourish while flouting conventional logic at every turn? What can enterprises worldwide learn from it? Infinite Vision reveals the power of a model that integrates innovation with empathy, service with business principles, inner change with outer transformation. It shows how choices that seem nai?ve or unworkable can, when executed with wisdom integrity, yield powerful results - results that light the eyes of millions.
