Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?

My idea is easily scaleable because it involve using an everyday human resource ie Doctors ,nurses and also using facilities which are already in usage in hospitals. My idea will scale through social media marketing and through community sensitization campaigns. We will also do door-door visits for the elderly people in their homes. We will scale and sustain our project by establishing a micro-health insurance scheme where patients will pay just 15 USD monthly in order to unlimitedly access our services.This fund will enable us to sustain the mobile clinic.
