Healthcare

Ayushman Bharat is seen as a panacea for the healthcare sector, but first it needs quality infra

An effective implementation of the universal health coverage requires an interconnected medium of TPAs, investigators, auditors, and trained specialists to create quality benchmarks across states to ensure equitable access to patients. Also, it is mandatory to have a mechanism to expedite payouts and claims with an appropriate quick grievance redressal, sans the bureaucratic sloth.

In November 2019, Tulip Diagnostics bought a 99% stake in Biosense for an undisclosed amount. Tracxn data and company financials peg the deal value at 6x the revenue. Given the liquidity preferences investors would have in their term sheets, would the Biosense founders gain adequately from the acquisition after spending 12 years in building a company?

Workplace

The medical rep is caught in a pincer grip as drug makers stoop to conquer and doctors want more

Strangled by steep targets and manipulative doctors, the medical representative’s profession is at its lowest ebb.

High time the government stepped in to ease the pressure on these professionals and restored respect to their trade.

Healthcare

In resource-constrained economies like India, it’s still beyond the reach for most, but Kerala’s “home care” model offers hope to millions. The state has institutionalised palliative and terminal care for efficient and affordable healthcare delivery.
