Kerala Govt drafted a new Bill to protect Doctors & Hospitals

Kerala government has drafted a Bill, Kerala Healthcare Service Persons and Healthcare Service Institutions (Prevention of Violence and Damage to Property) Bill, 2011, to protect doctors and healthcare institutions. The bill has provisions to prohibit violence against doctors and hospitals, a problem which doctors’ associations have been raising for the past decades. Though the ordinance came into effect more than a year ago, its tabling in the Assembly was delayed, much to the concern of doctors and hospital management. What makes the Bill different is that it gives protection to all medical practitioners, registered nurses, medical students, nursing students and paramedical workers associated with hospitals and other health institutions. And its rules make such attacks non-bailable offences. The Act, which has already been implemented in 16 states, including Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu, has rules to prosecute anyone who causes damage and loss to hospitals and attacks doctors and other staff. ”The common law is not effective when it comes to attacks against doctors because it books culprits for trespassing and the case does not stand as most of them would be bystanders or relatives. The new Bill will address all these problems along with recommendations to address patients’ grievances,” says Dr A V Jayakrishnan, secretary of the Professional Protection Scheme (PPS) of the Indian Medical Association. There have been reports of frequent attacks against hospitals over the years. This year, till September, only 10 incidents were reported. According to the statistics available with the IMA, a total of 12 such incidents were reported from across the state last year while the number was 20 in 2009. There were 22 such attacks in 2007, which came down to 19 in 2008. ”The new Bill maintains that people who attack hospitals should pay double the cost of damage they cause. This Act was implemented for the first time in Andhra Pradesh and it has been found very effective even in Naxal-hit areas,” says Dr K E Paulose, former national vice-president of IMA. All the offences under this Act are cognizable and non-bailable, which the medical practitioners feel would go a long way in curbing the repeated attacks against them, giving them a friendly environment and protection at workplace.

Apollo keen to enter untouched markets
Quote:
Apollo Hospitals has been focusing on expansion and operations in the domestic market, without making investments abroad. However, there are a few states in the country such as the North-eastern states, Kerala and Jammu & Kashmir which the chain is yet to enter. Though Apollo plans to have hospitals in these states, things have not worked out due to non-availability of land.

Several hospitals operating in and around major towns in Kerala have been approaching Apollo for possible buyouts. However, neither parties have been able to arrive at the right prices.

We are on the lookout for hospitals with a minimum of 200 beds and that, too, in cities with a population of 10 lakh. We have been getting offers from private hospitals run by a single doctor or a group of doctors. Mostly second generation management, who are into other professions, do not want to run them anymore,” a senior Apollo official said.

Kerala has seven cities — Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Kozhikode, Thrissur, Kollam, Kannur and Palakkad — with more than 10 lakh population, where Apollo would look at acquisition opportunities. However, the state is a difficult market to penetrate with an established vibrant healthcare system led by thousands of missionary-run hospitals.

Apollo, too, has a focus to penetrate the North-eastern region. It wishes to have more hospitals in West Bengal, apart from the Apollo Gleneagles in Kolkata. Siliguri is a place identified for an Apollo Reach hospital. It would also like to have hospitals in states like Manipur and Tripura. “Non-availability of land has been dogging Reach hospitals. In the Northeast too, we have not been able to get suitable land for hospital projects,” he said. Land availability is the reason why Apollo has not been able to set up a hospital in Jammu, though its telemedicine centres in the state have been linking patients with Apollo Indraprastha hospital in Delhi.

Healthcare just an SMS away, in Kerala

Using technology to improve healthcare, Dr SMS provides users with instant health-related information

Information is a scarce commodity in India, but mobile phones are not. Marrying the two, the Kerala State Information Technology Mission (KSITM) has introduced a free SMS-based information access service that provides local addresses and phone numbers of health facilities.

All that a user has to do is type ‘health’, her pin code, her health concern, and send it to a pre-designated number. Within minutes, she will receive an SMS listing the addresses and phone numbers of health facilities, hospitals and doctors in the area. The service is also available on the Internet, at www.drsms.kerala.gov.in.

Dr SMS is a free service, and one of 20 that mobile users in Kerala will be able to access when the state launches a mobile platform in July 2010. “We want to create a database on the mobile,” says Dr Rathan U Kelkar, Director, KSITM, an autonomous body that implements e-governance projects for the state government.

Currently, only eight of Kerala’s 14 districts can use Dr SMS but the service will be extended to the remaining six districts by August 2010. Around 72% of Kerala’s population owns mobile phones; Dr Kelkar says he gets 1,500 hits per day.

The service is likely to work well in a state like Kerala which has a highly literate population and a comparatively sound healthcare infrastructure so that once a facility is identified, access to it and receiving the required care is not as much of a problem as it is in other parts of the country where hospitals are scarce and quality of service poor.

KSITM is expected to soon launch other health-related services such as health alerts, in case of a health emergency such as a dengue or diarrhoea outbreak, and voice-based calls that route the call of a person in need of blood to a registered blood donor.

Apollo to enter Kerala with Kochi hospital

Apollo Hospitals will make an entry into Kerala with a greenfield project in Kochi. The company plans to invest Rs 150 crore in the project for which it is in talks with real estate facilitators.
“We had talks with Le Meridien group which has a few patches of land in the city. For the hospital project we will need five acres of land. It would be a multi-specialty hospital with an initial capacity of 100 beds, scalable to 300 beds. The investment on the project can be around Rs 150 crore,” said Prathap C Reddy, chairman, Apollo Hospitals.
Apollo will also have a training institute for nurses and para-medical staff along with the hospital. The healthcare major has been receiving proposals from several hospitals in Kerala whose second-generation management are no more interested in running the healthcare business. The company, however, has been keen to enter cities with over 10 lakh population.
Asked how Apollo viewed the market which has thousands of missionary-run hospitals, Reddy said: “When we started the first corporate hospital in India, the country only had government hospitals, those run by charity institutions and small private firms. So we won’t face much competition in the Kerala market.”
Further, the company is in the process of setting up 13 new hospitals and expanding capacity of four of its existing facilities. The new projects will add a total of 2,860 beds by FY15. The total cost on the ongoing projects is Rs 1,646 crore. This includes four Reach hospitals, three super specialty hospitals in Mumbai and one super specialty hospital in Patna.
The construction work on the company’s first medical college in Hyderabad is in completion stage, he said. The college has received the state and university approval and is waiting for the Medical Council of India’s nod. The college occupies 10-acre land within the Apollo Health City.

Make Kerala global hub of Ayurveda: Ravi



Thiruvananthapuram: Kerala deserved to be made the global hub of Ayurveda system of medicine in view of the state's inherent strength in the ancient Indian system of wellness, Union Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs Vayalar Ravi said Thursday.

Inaugurating six-day Global Ayurveda Festival here, Ravi wanted both national and state governments to come forward to promote Ayurveda and traditional systems of medicines on a global scale.

"It is good to see that at last Keralites are coming up with new projects that would promote Ayurveda. It is also important that Kerala is giving greater attention to research in the Ayruveda stream of health-care," he said.

Ayurveda treatment focused not just on curing diseases but laid emphasis on improving the whole lifestyle of the person coming for treatment.

Kerala Agriculture Minister K P Mohanan said Ayurveda was not a mere system of treating diseases but a science that paid attention to all aspects of life with the aim of maintaining the individual and societal health.

The event, organised by Ayurvedic fraternity with the support of the state and central government and health NGOs, was envisaged to bring together leading medical practitioners of the country, researchers, students, industry representatives and other stakeholders.

Renowned Ayurveda practitioner Ashta Vaidya Cheriya Narayana Namboothiri was honoured at the inaugural function by the Union Minister.

Sri Lankan Minister Amarathunga and Health Secretary Bandhula Gunanayage ISM Director Anita Jacob were among those present at the function.

An Ayush clinic, which offers free consultation for various diseases and services of expert doctors, has been opened for the general public as part of the event.

An Ayurveda medical exhibition with 350 stalls on various branches of Ayurveda on natural herbs, medicine production, endangered plants and animals, ancient surgical tools and techniques is a major attraction of the festival.

DM Healthcare set for Dh2b expansion, mulls IPO

DM Healthcare, the largest private healthcare provider in the GCC, on Wednesday unveiled a Dh2 billion expansion plan aimed at more than doubling the number of units in its network by 2015.

The Dubai-based group will raise the required finance for the ambitious expansion partly from its own resources and through an initial public offering within two years, said Dr Azad Moopen, Chairman of DM Healthcare.

Currently, the healthcare conglomerate which is marking its 25th anniversary, has among its shareholders two private equity companies — Olympus Capital Asia Investments and India Value Fund — both holding minority stakes.

Dr Moopen, outlining the roadmap for the exponential growth plans that will extend the group’s footprint across the GCC and subcontinent regions, said DM Healthcare would have 300 establishments, providing primary, secondary and tertiary healthcare with management and consultancy services by 2015.

At present, the group with revenues of over Rs12 billion, has 125 establishments under Aster and Medcare brands and daily treats more than 20,000 patients.

“We have plans to increase our network across the region, with projects that are all set for completion in the coming months. Our operations in India have been growing at a rapid pace too. Apart from increasing the network of hospitals in India’s Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, DM Healthcare is constructing the Aster-MedCity, a state-of-the-art quaternary care referral hospital in Kochi, master planned in 38 acres of land and a medical college with 750 beds hospital in Wayand, Kerala,” said Dr Moopen. DM Healthcare has acquired a large hospital in Saudi Arabia and is constructing three hospitals in the UAE. With these, the total beds being managed by the group will be over 3,000 in India and GCC, he said. “Our target is to have 12 full fledged hosptials in the GCC in two years,” he said.

“We serve across regions, nationalities and different verticals of healthcare. With presence in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Oman in the Middle East and with an expanding footprint in India, we really are now present across boundaries of regions and nations. With equal presence in all the three important verticals of healthcare namely clinics, hospitals and pharmacies, we today serve about eight million people a year, who represent various nationalities,” Dr Moopen added. In January, Olympus Capital, an international investment company backed by funds managed by Olympus Capital Holdings Asia, announced the investment of over Rs5 billion ($100 million) for a significant minority stake in DM Healthcare.

With this move, Olympus Capital became the group’s largest external investor as the existing promoters continue to be the largest shareholders in the company.

The transaction was a combination of Olympus Capital’s primary investment into DM Healthcare to help speed up the growth and expansion of the company in India, and secondary purchase of a portion of India Value Fund’s shareholding in the company.

Veda Corporate Advisors Pvt Ltd was the exclusive advisor to DM Healthcare on this transaction. Veda had also advised the group in its previous round of $45 million fundraising from India Value Fund in 2008. The latest capital injection will enable DM Healthcare to address the challenge of providing world-class healthcare services in the rapidly growing markets of India and the GCC countries, said Dr Moopen.

“We remain optimistic about the business prospects of the healthcare sector. With the strong support of our investors and our experienced management team, I am confident that DM Healthcare is positioned for continued growth in the healthcare sector in both India and the GCC region,” said Dr Moopen, who continues to hold the majority stake in the company.
