Gaps in Indian Hospitals

Healthcare sector in India is in alacritous boom due to increased population. Innovative technologies, processes, and partnerships with the Governments and private companies have begun bridging the health care gap. Despite Indian excellence in several spheres of health care delivery, there remains a significant gap in terms of a number of beds or number of doctors available which is far below the below the World Health Organization requirement of 1:250.Apart from this, the sector is surrounded with multiple issues in regards to infrastructure, availability of adequate investment, skilled human resources etc.
Headways in expanding health insurance coverage for the poor, building hospitals in smaller towns, using technology for safer drinking water and improving treatment outcomes are in underway to bridge the gap between the rural and urban healthcare delivery systems. An example of which includes the cost of Heart Surgeries in India is less than a tenth of what they would in the United States and health insurance that costs less than a dollar for an entire family.

Effective running of complex structured hospitals involves in latching the possible gaps at all levels of the various departments. A multispecialty hospital in Bangalore which runs a network of hospitals involves in providing heart bypass surgery at a very low cost by proper cost containment in the internal processes and carefully structured alliances with the insurers and other health care service providers. They concentrate directly by allocating the money to medicines, materials, and people and the most striking feature is that they rent the machines instead of owning it. This makes this hospital to outstand itself in providing a quality care service to people by bridging one of the major gaps in resource allocation and financial management.
India’s health care industry needs managers with “knowledge about the reality at the ground level” to help grapple with those challenges. Leaders also need to understand the scope of India’s health care gaps, work to build infrastructure to reach rural pockets, and to create innovative financing to deliver health care to the underprivileged. Putting in place public-private partnerships and roping in support from global players ought to be the thrust areas for the Indian Healthcare service industries. Though India’s private health insurance industry grew its business volumes, the major gap existing at present is that the large part of the population remains uninsured. Indians who incur expenditures on major health problems becomes indebted for life.
Despite the fact that India and other emerging economies have the highest growth opportunity from commercial and innovation perspectives, the country has yet to develop enough investment appeal for big pharmaceutical companies to locate research hubs. The pharmaceutical companies consider both macro and micro factors that include scientific and technical talents, infrastructure, government involvement and existing hubs of innovation.
          Technological and innovative advancements in the healthcare services is a way beyond the cusp in India which is being deep and consistent. The industry faces a constant challenge to provide quality health care which is affordable by accentuating the gaps.
