The significant gap between ‘required’ and ‘actual’ healthcare infrastructure
The significant gap between ‘required’ and ‘actual’ healthcare infrastructure has driven significant investment into assets, such as hospitals and other facilities, over the years. This, coupled with the growing availability and affordability of healthcare is spurring demand for other services such as diagnostics, pharmacies, equipment, etc. Due to the lower cost of procedures, India has become an attractive destination for medical tourism, and a base for clinical trials. The challenges that Indian healthcare faces on its way up are effective utilisation of resources, reducing operational costs, increasing performance and efficiency, scaling of business, rapidly-evolving technology and globalisation of healthcare delivery quality and standards. Government investments are focussed in areas such as improvement in public healthcare facilities, availability of generic and diagnostic services, increasing participation from non-profit organisations, and skill development of healthcare practitioners.
