What Else to Expect from the Scheme?


India is doing many things right in health care. The four important C’s in health care — Clinical care, Costs, Connectedness and Compassion — which are pivotal to the successful and sustainable health care model, are the country’s strength.


In health care, first, the quality of care is non-negotiable. The second and equally pivotal aspect is that of costs. As per an OECD (Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development) study, the treatment cost for major surgeries and procedures in India is only a fraction, and in most cases, a tenth the cost in developed countries. These costs can be further reduced through regulatory changes with regard to import duties and taxation. Cost is essential for health care to be equitable and inclusive as also critical for viability and sustainability. India can use its capability to devise out-of-the-box solutions for conventional problems to improve health care delivery and lower costs. India is in need of innovations such as low-cost diagnostic kits for rural households or low-cost dialysis. This will enable India to lead and offer cost-effective solutions to a world that is grappling with rising costs of health care.


A paramount aspect in the journey of healing is accessibility and connectedness. Being connected is critical to inculcate health awareness, to encourage screening, facilitate early detection of disease, provide post-operative assistance, and monitor well-being for pregnant women and young mothers and also senior citizens. Connectedness is also valuable to provide Continuous Medical Education to doctors and medical staff across geographies.


India’s demographic dividend with more than 40% of the population at the median age of 25 years can be used positively to give a right impetus to health care through gainful employment. According to a recent report, titled India’s New Opportunities-2020 by the AIMA, BCG and the CII, more than 40 million new jobs are expected to be generated by 2020, a huge increase from the five million people employed by the health care industry today. This creation of jobs would be the silver bullet to solving India’s many developmental challenges with families becoming incentivized to invest in education.


The stats depict that More than 3.4 lakh beneficiaries have been treated under Ayushman Bharat and PM Narendra Modi’s initiative #PMJAY across India within 2 months of PM-JAY launch. With this momentum and pace, the benefits of Ayushman Bharat scheme can be reached till the last mile.
