How can you Ensure Healthcare Reforms When Statistics say the real pictures. How to Fix Accountability of Doctors are also a major challenge.

  • There is just one doctor per 2000 people in India
  • There is acute shortage of 64 lakh skilled human resource in the sector
  • The physician density of India per 10,000 populations stands poorly at 6.5 against a global average of 14.2.
  • The density of hospital beds per 10,000 populations, which stands at nine against a global average of 30. doctors don’t want to serve rural India. They are very averse about their posting in countryside areas. maximum doctors in urban India are without the MBBS disagrees.
  • Healthcare Insurance almost non-existent. Unlike in the US, ordinary patients in India have no meaningful insurance to cover healthcare expenses. Most have to pay the medical bill on their own, and an increase in defensive medicine may affect these patients economically. But it is also true that in the absence of any insurance oversight, and without any government regulation, hospital expenses are skyrocketing in India
  • There are just 0.64 doctors and 1.44 nurses for 1,000 Indians. The ratio halves for rural India with a large number of health personnel working in urban areas. Although the number of health personnel has increased the demand for medical treatment has also risen with improvement income in recent years
  • A comprehensive study found that defensive medicine may contribute only 1-2% of the cost of US healthcare.
  • Malpractice liability may have a moderate degree of deterrent effect in countries with an effective regulatory system through medical council or board that routinely uses disciplinary action to curb negligence and unethical behaviour by doctors. Unfortunately, medical councils in India have been riddled with incompetence and deep rooted corruption. Disciplinary action against negligent or unethical doctors by medical councils, which comprise only doctors, is almost non-existent in India

More than focusing on sickness, let us focus on health: Narendra Modi
