HLL Lifecare sets up fair price outlet at Government Eye Hospital

HLL Lifecare, in collaboration with the Kerala Government, has set up a fair price outlet for ophthalmic products, including spectacles, lenses and frames at the Regional Institute of Ophthalmology.

Health Minister V S Sivakumar in his address said that the fair price outlet would be a blessing to the poor patients. ‘’At present, there is no price regulatory mechanism on the sale of ophthalmic products in the private sector; the prices are fixed by the sellers,’’ the Minister pointed out. K Muraleedharan MLA inaugurated the Lifecare Centre. Works Minister V K Ebrahim Kunju, Mayor K Chandrika, Trida chairman P K Venugopal, councillor Kumari Padmanabhan and HLL Lifecare director K K Suresh Kumar were present on the occasion. The Lifecare Centre, set up at the Government Eye Hospital here, will sell the ophthalmic products at affordable prices, with a rebate between 20 and 60 per cent compared to the open-market rates. HLL, founded in 1966, opened the centre as per the request of the Regional Institute of Ophthalmology. In October 2011, HLL Lifecare, the mini ratna public sector undertaking, had made a bold market intervention to open the first such fair price outlet - Lifecare Centre - at Thiruvananthapuram Medical College to sell surgical implants and consumables at a rebate of 40 per cent to 60 per cent. The centre, aimed at ensuring quality and affordability, has been working round-the-clock

Expat group to set up educity at Malappuram
Quote:
TRIVANDRUM: Al Abeer, the Saudi-based healthcare services group which has branched out into other countries in the region recently, is planning to set up a Rs 5.65 billion education hub in Kerala.

The EduCity will house schools offering courses in medicine, engineering, business administration, commerce and humanities with 65 per cent seats reserved for children of nonresident Indians.

It aims at teaching, training and research in all fields in collaboration with leading Indian and foreign universities.

“This project will largely focus on the needs of Kerala expatriate community in the Gulf whose major concern is education of their children back home and a bright career for them,” said Alungal Mohammed, chairman of the group, belongs to Vengara in Malappuram, who has spent 32 years as an expatriate.

It also runs a 100-bed hospital in Malappuram where the new project is also coming up.

The group has also expanded into other areas like information technology and has a set up a software development and training facility at Technopark.

Other firms that he runs include Core International LLC, Jeddah, and Consource Solutions Pvt. Ltd and Al Abeer Medical Tourism in Kozhikode.

“At EduCity, we will provide subsidised education to the children of NRIs whereas other institutions are taxing them indiscriminately. There’ll be quota for NRIs and the returnees,” said Mohammed.

“It’s time for me to do something for the community who made my business in the Gulf a success.”

He wants to introduce a new pattern of quality education right from the kindergarten level to the professional courses under one umbrella at an affordable fee structure.

A world class multi-specialty hospital will also be part of this project.

The EduCity will offer new generation courses designed by Harvard School of Medicine, Massachusetts Institute of Medical Science and Melbourne University in medical engineering and medicinal sciences and make available online library systems of international universities to enhance competence.


The campus, set in the midst of a lush green environment, will have residential facility with amenities like hypermarket, playgrounds, meditation area, departmental store and wi-fi facility.

Healthcare Projects in Kerala refers to the state's achievement of significant improvements in material conditions of living, reflected in indicators of social development that are comparable to that of many developed countries, even though the state's per capita income is low in comparison to them.

Joyalukkas' Kerala cancer hospital in Thrissur



The UAE-based Indian jewellery chain Joyalukkas, will build a state-of-the-art cancer specialty hospital in Trichur, Kerala. The hospital will offer free cancer treatment to poor patients as part of its CSR activities. The project is undertaken in collaboration with KIMS Group.

According to Joy Alukkas, Group Chairman and Managing Director, Joyalukkas Group, the hospital will have 300 beds initially. Ten acres of land has already been acquired for the purpose and the project is scheduled for completion in the next two years, he said.

Joy Alukkas was speaking at the Indian media representatives forum during the launch of 2012 edition of ‘Think Pink Awareness Campaign’.

The group has also reinforced their commitment to create awareness to educate the masses about breast cancer through its ‘Think Pink’ initiative this month. Joy Alukkas has joined hands with Zulekha Hospital to make the initiative bigger and better.

The World Health Organisation says breast cancer is the most common cancer among women worldwide, comprising 16 per cent of all female cancers. Due to the stigma attached with the illness as well as lack of information, several women risk losing their lives.

Joy Alukkas said, “We have decided to continue with ‘Think Pink’ as one of the key initiatives of our CSR division. We also recently organised our 25th blood donation drive.”

“As a group we are committed to take up causes that help and assist mankind and we hope we manage to strengthen the fight against breast cancer this October,” added John Paul Joy Alukkas, Executive Director, Joyalukkas Group.

The Joyalukkas ‘Think Pink’ commenced on October 2 at Zulekha Hospital, Dubai where Pink balloons were released as a symbolic gesture towards the cause.

Dr. Amer Sharif, Acting CEO (Hospitals sector), Dubai Health Authority (DHA) attended the function as chief guest and renowned breast cancer research specialist, Dr. Pamela Munster, Professor, Department of Medicine (Haematology/Oncology), University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Director, Early Phase Clinical Trials Unit and Leader, Developmental Therapeutics Program, UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center; addressed the audience.

Joyalukkas will release a mass media campaign under the ‘Think Pink’ banner. A special booklet comprising vital information will also be distributed all over UAE.

“We are happy to associate with Joyalukkas in building awareness for breast cancer. While women over 40 years of age are globally the most affected, younger women now are also being diagnosed with the disease, with women as young as 19 have been diagnosed with breast cancer. We hope ‘Think Pink’ will add to the activities undertaken by various bodies to build awareness, educate and protect women” said Dr. Zulekha Daud, Managing Director, Zulekha Healthcare Group.

Doctors of Zulekha Hospital will also interact and answer various queries on breast cancer on popular radio stations in UAE.

Joyalukkas Group operates various businesses across Singapore, the UK, India, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Oman, Kuwait and Qatar. The businesses include jewellery retail, money exchange, fashion and textiles, luxury air charter as well as shopping malls.

Gulf-based KEF to invest Rs 1,600 cr in Kerala

KOCHI, SEPT 14:
Gulf-based KEF Company today said it will invest around Rs 1,600 crore in Kerala to set up new projects, including a five-star hotel.

The company that operates out of Dubai International Financial Centre will set up three factories here at a cost of Rs 250 crore-Rs 300 crore, KEF company Chairman Fazal Kottikollon told reporters here.

He said the company will also set up a 500-bed hospital costing Rs 500 crore and a five-star hotel with a Rs 850 crore investment at Kozhikode.

The projects will create 5,000-10,000 jobs, Kottikollon said.

The three factories will be integrated manufacturing facilities specialising in pre-cast concrete technology for making kitchens, toilets, doors and windows.

The precast plant is envisaged as a high tech, quality controlled facility that promises to be a “game changing” initiative for Kerala’s infrastructure sector by enhancing quality and expediting on time project execution. The factories are expected to be ready in eight months, he said.

This will be followed by opening of a 500-bed hospital at Kozhikode, which is being built through a joint venture with the Peekay Group, a leading business entity in Kerala, and well-known cardiologist Ali Faizal.

The hospital is expected to open by the end of next year.

The super speciality facility would focus on cardiac sciences, neuro sciences and orthopaedics along with a rehabilitation programme, Kottikollon said. The company aims to create a research-based centre of excellence and establish it as a novel centre of medical tourism in the region.

Kottikollon said his firm also plan to set up similar projects at other locations, including Thiruvananthapuram and Mangalore.

CM: Private participation in healthcare essential


“Though the Constitution gives many rights to the citizens, the state should urgently uphold the Right to Health. The health needs of the people are huge,” said Chief Minister Oommen Chandy here on Saturday.

He was inaugurating the Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery of Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical Mission Hospital here.

The Chief Minister said that the state has reached a position to extend world class treatment standards.

“The absence of most modern equipment is being remedied. Now the government aims to take the available treatment to each household,” he said.

Though there are many astute doctors in the country, the non-availability of the latest equipment has always posed to be a challenge, he noted. Chandy said that though the state government has many limitations, it is doing its best to give the optimum service. But more benefits can be reaped through private participation in the health sector.

“The services rendered by both the public and private sector should be complementary,” he said.

The Chief Minister also lauded the initiative of the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church Medical Mission Hospital to provide better healthcare.

On the occasion, the logo of the new venture of the hospital was released.

Metropolitan of Kandanad diocese Thomas Mar Athanasius, Metropolitan of Angamaly diocese H G Youhanon Mar Polycarpus, K P Dhanapalan MP, V P Sajeendran MLA, Dr K C Mammen, Dr K Venugopal and MD of Synthite Industrial Chemicals LTD C V Jacob also attended.

Government keen on ensuring quality healthcare as right: CM

The government views health sector issues as a social problem and as such, the focus will be on infrastructure improvement in the state, said Chief Minister Oommen Chandy here on Friday.

The proposed State Health Policy will be comprehensive in every respect giving equal importance to allopathy, ayurveda and homoeopathic streams and also ensuring that clean drinking water supplies and garbage management got utmost importance in it, he added.

Addressing a workshop here, organised as part of framing of the draft health policy by experts in the field, Chandy pointed out that the motto of the government is ‘development and care’ and health sector has been included in the ‘care’ stream. Only if quality is ensured in the development-welfare sphere, people will benefit from it. The government is keen on ensuring quality healthcare for the people as a right, he said.

‘’Modern medicare, as in any part of the world, is available here also. But commoners are not getting it. Only if quality healthcare is ensured as a right, people will be entitled for it. The State Government is exerting pressure on the Centre,’’ the Chief Minister said.

He said that the decision of the government to distribute generic medicines free of cost to the needy was based on the assessment that the introduction of a comprehensive health policy might take some time.

In his inaugural address, Health Minister V S Sivakumar said that the main issues in the state’s health sector was lack of infrastructure and sufficient number of staff catering to it. With a staff pattern adopted in 1961, there is indeed a real shortage of staff and a phased improvement in the situation is underway. ‘’By New Year, the vacancies of doctors in hospitals can be filled up,’’ he hoped. He also said that free distribution of generic medicines would be extended to all government hospitals in the state within six months.

The Minister said that the proposed health policy would be state-specific, though the declared health policy of the Central Government would be a guiding factor. ‘’After seminars and workshops on a wide scale on the draft policy, the final document will be submitted to the government. Opinion will also be mobilised from the general public by posting the draft policy in the website, before the policy is finalised,’’ the Minister promised. Planning Board vice-chairman K M Chandrasekhar released the structure of the health policy planned, on the occasion.

Health Policy Drafting Committee chairman Dr M Balaraman, Dr M Krishnan Nair, Planning Board member G Vijayaraghavan, Health Department Principal Secretary Rajeev Sadanandan, Health additional director M Sreedhar and Dr K Rajmohan spoke.

Health Director Dr P K Jameela, Dr K T Shenoy, Dr M K C Nair, Dr Lalitha Kailas, Dr Ramdas Pisharodi, Dr Sunitha Viswanathan, Dr Meenu Hariharan and others presented papers in the workshop.

Healthcare: UK for increasing collaboration with state

Aimed at strengthening cooperation and exploring opportunities for increasing collaboration in healthcare sector, UK Health Minister Anna Soubry, has invited key universities, colleges and companies in the state to the UK for partnerships in education, research, training, equipment and technology.

“We are looking for mutually beneficial relation to cooperate and share our knowledge as we both have our own strengths in health,” she said after meeting Chief Minister Oommen Chandy here on Tuesday. Soubry had led a healthcare delegation from the UK to the state.

Noting that diabetes was a great threat both in the UK and Kerala, she said that there was a need for technological partnership. “We have seen that the western diet is not good. We have to encourage people to be more health conscious. There should be a cooperation in technological knowhow and treatment protocols,” she said.

Commending the work done by the nurses from the state in the UK, Soubry said that the compassion and care of the nurses from the state were really appreciable. Elaborating on the issue, the Minister said that the nursing schools in the UK would certainly like to know from the nursing schools in the state on how this compassion and care were made possible. She also said that nurses from the state could learn the latest in nursing on a three to six month short-term courses in the UK.

Asked if there was any ban on the nurses from the country for working in the UK, she said: “In certain professions we have enough skilled people. But still there are opportunities.” Soubry also said that the universities in the UK had not closed their doors on students who wish to pursue higher education there. “More and more students should come there and pursue their studies. I am saying this because there have been reports that universities in the UK have closed their doors to foreign students,” she said.

Meanwhile, Chandy said that it was nice to see that UK and Kerala had been able to forge a partnership to improve quality in healthcare.

A booklet ‘Quality standard for postpartum haemorrhage and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy’ was also launched by Soubry and Chandy. The booklet brings together the work and plans of the Kerala Health Department and the Kerala Association of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and of NICE International, UK. This document is the product of a partnership with the Government of Kerala, the National Rural Health Mission, the Kerala Federation of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and the Departments of Health Services and Medical Education. NICE International founding director Kalipso Chalkidou said that they were looking forward to a long-term engagement with Kerala.

State bags Central project on e-health

Kerala has bagged a Rs.96-crore project from the Electronics and Information Technology Department, under the Union Ministry of Communication and IT, for developing an electronic demographic database and a hospital automation system.

Announcing the project in Thiruvananthapuram on Wednesday, Health Minister V.S. Sivakumar said the State government would invest Rs. 9 crore in the project, while the Centre would bear the rest of the project cost of Rs.87 crore.

This is a first-of-its-kind e-health initiative in the entire country, which envisages a central data server which would have all health and demographic data of the population and which would be linked to the HMIS (Health Management Information System) projects of all health institutions in the State, right down to the level of sub-centres.

Electronic records

“In a nutshell, we are moving towards developing the electronic medical records of every citizen. A valuable population-linked health data base, this would be a vital record for the State’s health planners. It is an ambitious project and a major task for Kerala because we are being given the mandate to develop a prototype which could be used for the rest of India too,” Principal Secretary, Health, Rajeev Sadanandan, said.

The pilot project would be developed for Thiruvananthapuram district first and then extended to Kollam, Alappuzha, Idukki, Ernakulam, Kasargod, and Malappuram districts.

Two parts

The e-health initiative has basically two arms. A central data server, which holds the health data of all citizens, which can be accessed using the Unique Identification Number (UID) by all clinicians from any health institution in the network.

The second part of the project is the computerisation of all health institutions to link all wings inside a hospital, making hospital administration and processes easy for a patient.
