Building Effective PPP Model for Indian Healthcare

Dr Rajiv Kumar Jain, Additional Chief Health Director (Admnistration), Central Hospital, Northern Railway

In the last five years, the goal was on lowering maternal and infant mortality, malnutrition among children, anemia among women and girls and to address fertility issues. Unfortunately, none of the goals have been met. We have increased publically sponsored health coverage like Rajiv Gandhi Swasthya Bima Yojana. We need good investment on mHealth, telemedicine, need to increase use of Ayush and micro health insurance. We face disproportionate supply and infrastructure in terms of doctor, nurses and beds.

In a PPP model, there are health services under RTI. Information related to government health services should be provided within 48hours. In some time, we will able to create standardised electronic medical records and will have different technologies service oriented architecture, web services, cloud which will facilitate free flow of information to central repository.

There should be affordable and easily accessible services and the proper implementation with an eye on continuing cost control. In the PPP model, relationships dont go far; we need continued partnership model where the private party will work with the public enterprise for good of the citizen at large.

Subodh Satyawadi, CEO, GVK Emergency Management and Research Institute

There is a need of partnership. Nowhere have we achieved Millennium Development Goals, if we want to achieve the goal, we have to ensure healthcare for all. It will bring lot of benefits, costefficiency, higher productivity, accelerated delivery, customer focus and enhance the social service.
