Commercialization of Healthcare sector
Health Care is one crucial field where casualness or any sort of nonchalance attitude can by any chance be unaccepted. But, to the saddest part, the world we live today is poised with scars of corruption even in this sanctuary field.
Following are the problems if it is under the governmental control:.
1. Corruption (of course prominent in a country with EXPERTS).
2. Lethargic attitude towards patients.
3. Poor infrastructure and equipment.
These further end up in providing a least care for the patients.
As brought out in earlier discussion points, commercialization would lead to opening up the sector to private player, who, by virtue of their existence, would try to exploit and make the best profit out of business. But there are many other advantages that these private organizations could bring in:
1. Better infrastructure and technology.
2. Health and clean environment.
3. Better Logistics (ambulance and emergency services).
4. Better Management and effective utilization of resources (Doctors, facilities).
5. Cost effective & quality solutions due to health competition.
Commercialization of Healthcare sector , Good or Bad
Based on the locality requirement.
However, nothing comes as free and there is a considerable risk. Either the cost effectiveness may cut a hole on the quality of service or the quality service can be rendered at a higher price. This problem of money laundering can be reduced through proper Government control. The Government can implement guidelines on the standards and pricing. Also, this has to be systemically by period audit by a transparent external agency. Various NGOs and private organizations like Manipal, Aravind are currently doing well in the health care sector. With many MNC’s showing interested toward the CSI activities the controlled commercialization will certainly be a boon for our people.
