Hyderabad hospitals get shot in the arm with cutting-edge tech

The city's booming healthcare industry is all set for a revolution with plans to get a sizeable chunk of patients from traditional medical hubs in 2013 with the help of cutting-edge technology like new-age angioplasties, advanced equipment and customised mobile applications.

Hyderabad has always attracted patients from Kolkata, Bhubaneswar and the northeastern parts of the country. Hospitals now contemplate targeting patients from southern neighbours and bigger metros as well.

At the moment, 20-25% of patients in corporate hospitals in the city are coming from other states and by mid-2013, this number is going to increase significantly, says the AP Specialty Hospitals' Association (ASHA), which puts the industrial growth for next year to at least 15% with the help of new technology. Around 1,000 new beds would be added to the 6,000 beds available currently, officials from ASHA said. "There is need for an additional 4,000 beds to meet the rising demand," Dr B Bhaskar Rao, president of ASHA, said.

The cost of healthcare in Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore is very high. Compared to Delhi and Mumbai, it is 30%-40% less in Hyderabad where hospitals are better equipped, said health experts. "Technology available is the best in Hyderabad. We have four Novalis TX radiation treatment equipment, five Pet Scans and 30-40 cath labs unlike anywhere in the country. The number of Robots is on par with Delhi," said Dr Rao.

Besides, the accommodation and transportation expenditure is also cheaper here. While a lot of patients are attracted to Hyderabad because of the cost factor and reputation of doctors, a lot also come based on word- -of-mouth publicity.

As part of their plans to cut down on the number of visits patients have to make to Hyderabad, hospitals here are planning to dispense medical advice through mobile phones. Hospitals like LivLife have a mobile application that helps patients fix appointment, change appointment and all the details about their surgeries. Since the hospital specializes in bariatric (weight reduction) surgery, the application also allows patients to upload current pictures and see their prospective one 30 kilos down."Currently around 15% of the patients are utilizing the application," said Dr Nandakishore Dukkipati, a bariatric surgeon there.

Many hospitals have started electronic health record online portal that provides patients with secure access to their medical records and lab results. Patients are being given unique ID which they can access and store all the records.

"There is no need to carry hard copies of X Rays, CT Scans and other investigations when you visit the doctor. Doctors can open the records and see the patient's past history on the laptop and give treatment accordingly," said a specialist.

Dr Shiv Kumar, cardiologist at Apollo Hospitals, said that several healthcare facilities in Hyderabad are well equipped. By 2013, the hospital plans to launch a mobile application that helps heart attack patients have their cardiac information sent directly from the ambulance to the emergency department prior to the patient's arrival.

"Currently, by the time the patient reaches the hospital, doctor does not know the ECG," he said. He added that 30-40% of the patients at Apollo are from other parts of the country and across the globe as well.

The demand for self-defense aids like pepper sprays and red chilli sprays has gone up three to four per cent in the city.
Shopkeepers say that they are struggling to meet the demand. Shops that usually sell 10 to 15 sprays a month are reporting sales of 30 to 35 cans in the last 15 days.

Inadequate dialysis facilities at Government hospitals forcing patients to opt for cheaper dialysis outside

It is like asking patients to survive on rice porridge or gruel by consuming it twice a week. The patient may survive, but the sickness and other health complications will remain.

This is the state in which chronic kidney patients, utilising the Government-sponsored free Arogyasree dialysis, find themselves in.

Inadequate dialysis facilities at Government hospitals are forcing patients to opt for cheaper dialysis outside, which makes them prone to infections. Arogyasree dialysis patients have also complained that medical equipment like tubing, dialysers and filters are not changed frequently, which poses serious health risk.

Ideally, chronic kidney patients, to lead a quality life, need anywhere between three to four sessions of dialysis a week. Incidentally, patients enrolled under the Arogyasree scheme have access to just two dialysis sessions of two hours each in a week.

“We are grateful that the Government is providing free dialysis. But, two dialysis sessions a week are not enough, and due to that I am going to a private clinic for one more dialysis session. There is a constant fear of infection because health workers here tend to reuse certain equipment like dialysis tubes and dialysers, which are supposed to be discarded,” says Md. Akram, a kidney patient at Gandhi Hospital.

Owing to weak immunity levels, chronic renal patients, especially those undergoing dialysis, are at a high risk of catching infections. Arogyasree dialysis patients say that dialysis equipment like dialysers and components such as filters are used multiple times.

“There are occasions when the dialysers, which should be used only for one month by only one patient, are being used for three months. Because of such unsafe practices, fluids started getting accumulated in my body, and that was when I decided to stop using the Arogyasree dialysis facility,” says another patient.

Many patients have also complained about the shortage of erythropoietin drugs under the Arogyasree dialysis scheme. Almost all dialysis patients are anaemic, and after each session, it is mandatory for such patients to take erythropoietin tablets to normalise the red blood cells level. Arogyasree dialysis patients are given free erythropoietin once in a month.

HYDERABAD, JAN 8:
Pune-based preventive healthcare firm Indus Health has entered the southern market in India by tying up with Apollo Hospitals to set up its 55th centre in Hyderabad today.

The firm currently has a tie-up with 15-odd hospitals providing specially designed healthcare packages through 55 centres across 29 cities in India. It offers four packages to suit different age groups with a uniform price tag of between Rs 3,000 and Rs 17,000. The high-end packages are best suited for people above 40 years and cover 21 different tests related to cardiac, hypertension, diabetes and cancer symptoms, including CT scan of the heart.

“We already have a tie-up with the Apollo Group in Ahmedabad. We have now decided to extend the association in Hyderabad,” Amol Naikawadi, Joint Managing Director of Indus Health, told mediapersons here.

Apollo Hospital Hyderabad is a 350-bed multi-speciality hospital with over 50 specialities and super-specialities.

Amol said the company had been expanding its reach as awareness amongst people for early detection of diseases was on the rise. Last year, the firm sold its preventive healthcare packages to 60,000 people, with the number of clients growing at 25 per cent every year. About 70 per cent of its customers are aged above 40 years.

‘Swasthya’ Slate project is launched by PHFI and Government
It is not often that one comes across an innovative technology in health care that has made basic diagnostic tests simple and affordable. The recently launched ‘Swasthya’ Slate project by Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI) and the Government could potentially become ‘the’ device that has bridged the gap between doctors and patients in urban and rural areas.

The diagnostic kit has enough promise to change the way basic diagnostics are carried out in the health centres in the State. At just Rs.85, the kit, which comes with an Android based Tablet, a small box dubbed as Swasthya Slate and other diagnostic equipment, enables to conduct tests for sugar, blood pressure, heart rate, haemoglobin levels, ECG, body temperature, urine protein levels and test water quality. The results are given on the spot within 10 to 15 minutes.

Feature and usability wise, the Swasthya Slate is ticking all the right boxes. It can send the test results in the form of mails and alert patient’s personal doctor through an SMS. Interestingly, the kit is GPS enabled, which records the patients’ co-ordinates and throws up suggestions like the nearest doctor, clinic and hospital available in the locality of the patient.

While private labs charge anywhere between Rs. 1,100 and Rs. 1,800 to take up all the tests and only releases the tests by evening, Swasthya Slate within minutes uploads patient data and results to a remote service via internet.

The stored data is accessible only to patients and doctors in the Swasthya Slate portal and removes the practice of maintaining records on paper. In case of no internet, the patient database is stored within the Tablet’s internal memory.

Swasthya Slate software also brings features like Decision Support System, capable of suggesting treatment modalities to specific ailments to the frontline health care worker. “Specialist doctors are hard to find at primary health centres. The health care worker can access the decision support system and advice basic precautions to the patient before contacting the specialist,” says Team Leader, Affordable Health Technology, PHFI, Dr. Kanav Kahol.

The Tablet software consists of clinical algorithms and customised health protocols written by PHFI developers. “We developed the software and hardware in-house. That has helped keep the costs low,” he adds.

Indus Health Plus, a preventive healthcare firm based in Pune, had recently announced its partnership with Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad. As part of its expansion plan, the firm is setting up its 55th centre to offer specially designed preventive health check packages in Hyderabad.

After establishing a strong foothold in Maharashtra, MP, Gujarat and the North, Indus Health Plus is now expanding its base in the South. So far the firm has tied up with 15 hospitals across India and offers specially designed preventive health check up packages. It offers four packages to suit different age groups, with a uniform price tag of between Rs.3,000 and Rs.17,000 across its network. The package best suited for people above 40 years covers 21 different tests related to cardiac, hypertension, diabetes and cancer symptoms, including CT scan of heart, MRI scan and screening tests.

With this new tie-up with Apollo Hospitals, Indus Health Plus has also made its presence in Hyderabad with its exclusively designed preventive health packages (PHPs) to the customers. Indus health Plus has been doing remarkable service in the preventive healthcare arena. It has encouraged more than 3.5 lakh people to go for a preventive health check-up.

“As the diabetes population in India is growing steadily, preventive healthcare is very important. Our partnership with Indus Health Plus is a great step forward which will enable us diagnose patients with diabetes and cancers at early stage. An increased focus on preventive healthcare will help India fight its growing battle with lifestyle ailments. Indians need to take greater responsibility of their own health and the first step to well-being is for one to undergo a preventive health check-up with diagnostics and tests suited to their age and gender,” said Dr Prathap C Reddy, chairman Apollo Hospitals Group.

At present Apollo Hospital group has a 350-bed multi-specialty hospital in Hyderabad with over 50 specialties and super-specialties, 10 centres of excellence, education, research, information technology all in one sprawling campus. Other important department of the group include institutes for heart diseases, cancer, joint diseases, emergency, renal diseases, neurosciences, eye and cosmetic surgery, each a centre of excellence, positioned to offer the best care in the safest manner to every patient.

In India, Apollo Hospitals pioneered the concept of preventive healthcare and ever since over 7.5 million individuals have experienced the value of a health check up. It is important that people are cognizant that if detected early, even cancer is curable. Diabetes too can be prevented and a cardiac event can also be avoided or postponed if the signs are detected early during a preventive health check-up.

Sharing their expansion plan, Amol Naikawadi, joint managing director, Indus Health said, “In the next ten years we aspire to have a pan Indian presence and make Indus a household name in India. At present we have a modest ambition of reaching out to a million people in the next five years and thus create a more conducive environment for saving lives as well as unwanted health expenditure. We also wish to extend our reach from the present number of 29 cities to 50 cities in a couple of years.”

DM Healthcare, the Dubai-based health care major, is understood to be closing in on two key acquisitions of hospitals in India for Rs 538 crore ($100 million), as part of its Rs 1,200 crore expansion in India over the next two years.

The company, which raised $100 million through the private equity route from Olympus Capital early last year, is understood to be in advanced talks with two hospitals in south India. A deal with one is expected in the quarter.

According to investment bankers in the loop, the company is in talks for an acquisition deal of Rs 200 crore with a hospital near Hyderabad. A senior official of DM Healthcare told Business Standard inorganic expansion was part of the hospital’s plans in India, adding they intended to add at least 2,000 beds through this route over the next two years.
DM Healthcare has close to 1,000 beds in India and is looking to take this up to 4,000 in two years’ time by establishing clusters of 'Hub and Spoke Hospitals' in the Tier II and III cities. Most of the hospitals will be acquired or established as brown field projects. The Group is already active in Maharashtra with hospitals at Kholapur, ophthalmic Centres in NCR Delhi, IVF Centres in South India are some other niche areas being explored. Even as this expansion is being planned, its DM MedCity at Kochi, a green-field venture, with an investment of $300 million when completed, will be attracting patients from the world over. Phase I of the Project with a 500 bed Quaternary Care Hospital, Medical Convention Centre, Hotel and Apartments will be built at a cost of $ 150 million on a 40 acre land already acquired by the Group.

Olympus Capital post its $100 million investment in DM Healthcare holds 26 per cent, while the earlier PE investor India Value Fund exited partly. The healthcare sector in India has been the second most sought after industry for the private equity investors during last year with as much as $1.2 billion invested across 48 deals. Some of the major investments worth $100 million or more in the healthcare segment include Manipal Health Systems, Care Hospitals and Vasan Eyecare besides DM Healthcare.

According to investment bankers who are active in the healthcare segment, there are quite few hospitals in India which are attractive for consolidation. During last year, Actis Private Equity was looking to exit Gujarat-based Sterling Hospital, while ICICI Venture has a bouquet of hospitals, which it will probably be exiting during 2013.

“Given the context where the major hospital chains such as Manipal Healthcare, Care Hospitals and DM Healthcare are scouting for acquisitions, the valuations of region-based hospital chains have shot up substantially making it difficult for expansion of hospital chains,” an investment banker added.

OrthoGlide is a metallic wedge-shaped device and a novel implant that is being inserted into and replaces the worn out cartilage through small incision not more than seven cm. This relieves pain and inflammation in patients and it becomes the alternative to total knee replacement.

The lady undergone surgery was suffering pain in both legs for the last three years and she has been operated with the OrthoGlide knee implant on both of her legs.

The new technique is an alternative for total knee replacement with minimal invasive technique, leaving untouched with other parts of the joint, with no blood loss. The patient could stay in minimal pain after surgery and may leave home after a day from the hospital.

Dr Prabhat Lakkireddi, who was trained in London for 10 years and recently joined Apollo Health City.

HMDA's plan to modernise city hospitals

Source: Times of India

Quote:
HYDERABAD: Five city-based hospitals will set up state-of-the-art healthcare facilities under HMDA's Development of Hospital Project at Gachibowli.

The hospitals are Maxivision, Asian Institute of Gastroenterology, Care Hospitals, Rainbow hospitals and KIMS.

"As they have come forward to be part of the project, they have been finalised," HMDA secretary D Rama Rao told TOI. These bids were finalised on February 10, 2009 and the process of allocating land for them has begun.

Last week, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) started handing over 6.76 acre land at Sy no 136 located at Gachibowli to the bidders.

One-acre will be given to each of the developers in the project at Rs 5 crore per acre.

As part of this project, the HMDA has decided to provide medical services in orthopaedic & trauma, paediatric, optholomogy and cardiac care.

Under this project, five major institutes including Institute of Cardio Vascular and Translation Research, Integrated Centre of Excellence in Gastro Enteric Health Care, Integrated Centre of Excellence in Paediatric Health Care, Integrated Centre of Excellence in Ophthalmic and Integrated Centre for Excellence in Orthopaedics and Trauma will be set up in the site.

The HMDA had invited expression of interest (EOI)-cum-request for proposal (RFP) from the interested hospitals in the city to take up this project through public private partnership (PPP) mode through `Swiss challenge approach' under the provision of Andhra Pradesh Infrastructure Development Enabling Act 2001.

"Out of the five hospitals, so far only two hospitals including KIMS and Asian Institute of Gastroenterology submitted their EOI-cum-RFPs," HMDA Estates Officer P Wilson Babu said.
I think the project is still on, but don't know the current satus. It's located near Ramky Towers.

Basically each hospital was supposed to set up a center of excellence for a specific specialty.

Care Hospitals - Institute of Cardio Vascular and Translation Research
Asian Institute of Gastroenterology - Integrated Centre of Excellence in Gastro Enteric Health Care
Rainbow Hospitals -Integrated Centre of Excellence in Paediatric Health Care
Maxivision - Integrated Centre of Excellence in Ophthalmology
Sunshine Hospitals - Integrated Centre for Excellence in Orthopaedics and Trauma

The newly launched ‘Care outpatient centre’ is the 13th facility from CARE group.

The hospital chain is moving with a mission and a passion for providing affordable quality healthcare. Recently, the Care hospital group had also received funding of $110 million from Advent International Private Equity to aid organic growth.

Hyderabad: Doctors in Gandhi Hospital are concerned over four non functioning respiratory ventilators and the failure to renew the annual maintenance contract for the other 30 ventilators.

With 23 operation theatres and over 34 ventilators in the hospital, doctors claim that annual maintenance is essential. “We are not asking the government to purchase new machines. Restore the old ones properly so that patients can be attended to quickly,” said a doctor.

Doctors say they feel handicapped when lack of equipment does not allow them to function properly. Machines purchased in 2004 are lying in the equipment room but cannot be used.

Some of the equipment has been given by donors and they even maintain the machines, but donors can do so only for the initial period, and the hospital must carry on after that.

An officer in the hospital’s administration department said the defunct machines are very old and cannot be repaired. “The cost of repair is more than the cost of a new machine.”

Dr S. Mahabub, superintendent of Gandhi Hospital says, “We have sufficient machines right now. We are looking at a good contractor to maintain the machines. Repair quotations are exorbitant while we have minimum budget. No one is asked to leave for want of a ventilator.”

The centre is well equipped with ample facilities for litigants to interact and resolve issues.

At last, Hyderabad will have its own mediation centre. This will take the burden off the regular courts and help mend strained familial relations. The Hyderabad mediation centre (HMC) will be inaugurated on March 2 by the Chief Justice of India TC Gosh at the Legal Service Aid centre next to the City Civil Court Complex near Purani Haveli in Old City.

The mediation centre for Hyderabad is an initiative of the High Court. Under Section 89 of the High Court Act the courts can allow settlement of disputes outside court by referring the civil disputes for resolution through alternative mechanisms- judicial settlement. Until now the Nyaya Seva Sadans at the various court premises were used for mediation. However, taking a leaf from the Bangalore Mediation Centre, the proposed centre will be dedicated to family cases in the district and resolve the disputes within a 90 days.

The mediation centre will be headed by the senior judicial officer as the director. Presently the secretary of the AP State Legal Service Authority S Ravi Kumar (pictured) will head the centre. Kumar says, “There are cases with the lower and high courts where even after seven years litigants are fighting for justice. But through mediation centres, we aim to solve the dispute within days. This way the number of pending cases will be brought down to a considerable extent. We will not be charging any fee for the mediation.”

It has also got world class infrastructure. With air conditioned visitors’ lounge and six counselling rooms the mediation centre is designed to make the litigants feel at home. “We wanted to provide a very different atmosphere to people who come here. We have provided a separate space for litigants’ children. There are separate women and men mediator rooms too,” said advocate B Shankar.

Speaking on how senior advocates had to undergo vigorous training to become mediators, senior advocate and mediator M Rajender Reddy said, “Sixty senior advocates with more than 15 years of experience have been appointed as mediators. We had to undergo vigorous training by trainers and psychologists in July 2012. The training module was determined by the Supreme Court and the training was a 40 hours programme scheduled for over a week.”

Though the mediation centre will entertain all kinds of litigations, family related disputes will be given top priority, says S Ravi Kumar. “Matrimonial issues constitute a major portion of the cases that come to the court. So we will be giving top priority to these family disputes. However, other cases related to partition, property, money suits, possession and any other type of litigation also can be referred to the mediation centre by the High Court.”
