Government Hospitals and Tele-radiology: 5C NetworkHealthcare is one of the largest service sectors in India as it should be, considering the population of India.Dec 21, 2021
Healthcare is one of the largest service sectors in India as it should be, considering the population of India. Both the public sector and the private sector play a very active role. Government hospitals provide medical facilities at a very low cost to everyone whereas private hospital charges higher than the government.With the rapid growth of population and shortage of medical facilities provided by the government, many private health care services came onto the scene. According to World Bank, nearly 27 Crore people come under the poverty line in India.
The problem faced by government hospitals:
Since the major population prefer government hospital, it automatically creates a huge queue outside every department and the imbalance between doctors and patients rises. Since the pressure on doctors is less in the private sector and as the pay scale is higher; government doctors tend to move to the private sector. At last, the problems knock at government hospitals doors due to the lack of staff and doctors, especially in emergency situations when the immediate support of doctors is needed.Even after having imaging technology, if the diagnoses are not done by radiologists. A proper medical decision cannot be made for better medical treatment by the clinician. The system is facing a large shortage of radiologists, especially in government hospitals. The satisfaction level of the patient was not found to be high with respect to the diagnosis and treatments.
“The country is facing a shortage of allied health professionals. Demands for the well qualified and skilled allied health workforce in the country are increasing every day due to advances in the healthcare sector, diagnostic procedures, diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, etc” said a senior ministry official.In March 2017, the Union Cabinet approved National Health Policy 2017. They aim to allocate major resources to primary care (day to day health care given by health care providers). In addition to this, the policy also proposes free drugs, free diagnostics and free emergency and essential health care services in all government hospitals to provide access and financial protection to a majority of the population.It also proposes the raising of public health spending to 2.5 per cent of GDP where as it was 1 per cent of GDP earlier. According to the health minister, the target expenditure of 2.5 per cent of GDP will be met by 2025.
Need for Solution: Remote Radiology Interpretation or Teleradiology
Teleradiology is the transmission of radiological patient images, for example, X-Ray, CTs, and MRIs, from one distinct location to the next for the reason of distributing studies to different radiologists and doctors.Teleradiology took birth somewhat because of the unevenness between the request and availability of radiologists. The ultimate solution which we can provide to those hospitals, patients, diagnosis centres, radiologists and clinicians is only through Remote Radiology Interpretation Solutions.
