Mysore institute turns students into industry-ready graduates

MYSORE: To overcome the concerns raised by National Assessment and Accreditation Council - that only 10% of the graduates are employable -- Mysore Institute of Commerce and Arts (MICA) has come up with a unique programme.

MICA Integrated Skills Training (MIST) Finishing School Programme has been designed to mould industry-ready candidates. They are supplemented with professional skills throughout their graduation, said Ashraf Peeran, MICA chairman. According to him, most of the students start hunting for jobs after graduation, only to be rejected many times.

The reasons for their failure are simple -- they lack communication skills.

A student doing well in all levels of interview may fail when it comes to communication, the foremost requirement to bag jobs, he said, and cited an example: "A commerce student scored well academically in accounting, but he failed to exhibit his talent practically. To equip students with hands-on experience, MICA will train them from first year itself with resource persons from various fields and companies."

Students will be given exposure to related subjects through talks, seminars, workshops and tours. They will be groomed for business and personal etiquette so that they hone their skills for interviews. The chairman said that they won't charge extra fee for the training.

Ashraf said they admit students from varied backgrounds, including academics. "The aim is to make them capable and face the real world," he added.

The MIST programme aims at moulding students into being "at least 85% competent" at the end of their, he said.

Badiuzzama, first year BBM student, said: "The programme is helping me in many ways. I understand lessons and apply them practically in my studies."

Frugal innovation: Devi Shetty's Narayana Hrudayalaya to conduct heart surgeries at world's cheapest rates

http://economictimes.indiatimes.com/...w/17762516.cms
MYSORE: Narayana Hrudayalaya, a pioneer in low-cost cardiac care, is building a chain of hospitals that will carry out heart surgeries at the cheapest rates in the world, buttressing India's reputation as the Mecca for frugal innovation.

A series of design and operational advancements, ranging from construction techniques to post-operative care, will mean that an open heart surgery can be performed for as low as Rs 65,000, or about one-fourth the cost in a corporate hospital.

The Bangalore-based healthcare provider aims to reach 100 towns with a population of 500,000 to one million in the next seven years. The first multi-specialty hospital at Mysore - in which the government of Karnataka has a 26% stake - will start operations this week.

Over the years, India has proven its expertise in creating world-class products and services at low cost, gaining from economies of scale. Tata Motors' small car Nano, the Aravind Eye Care System, Jaipur Foot prosthetic as well as Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital in Bangalore have been hailed as examples of frugal innovation.

The 200-bed, 1.5-lakh-square-foot Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital, set up with an investment of about Rs 45 crore - 80% cheaper than similar multi-specialty facilities - is built on a nine-acre plot. To begin with, the hospital, which has nine operation theatres, will have 23 doctors and about 40 nurses. "Charity is not sustainable, there has to be a business model," said Devi Prasad Shetty, cardiac surgeon and founder of Narayana Hrudayalaya. "Innovations have to be affordable; a magic pill will not do."

Right from design and construction, Narayana Hrudayalaya has sought new ways to cut costs. It has kept the design compact, reduced empty spaces and used prefabricated structures. Also, instead of marbles and expensive furniture, the hospital has used simple tiles and low-cost seating, reducing the cost per bed to Rs 12-18 lakh, compared with Rs 60-80 lakh at other corporate hospitals.

"This is the lowest that is humanly possible; we have cut every bit of flab in the system," said Viren Prasad Shetty, 28, senior vice-president for strategy and planning at Narayana Hrudayalaya Hospitals.

He is the son of Devi Shetty and an alumnus of Stanford Graduate School of Business.

The high cost of infrastructure is a major limiting factor for healthcare providers. To bring down costs, Narayana Hrudayalaya is running the Mysore facility like a startup. "We have a concept of producing a profit-and-loss account daily," said Viren Shetty. "Every system is a creature of desperation and we feel this model is one of them. In India, we have been for long time selling family jewellery and land to pay for healthcare."

Though 2.5 million heart surgeries are required in India every year, only 90,000 are performed. The country needs 3 million additional beds to serve the current needs of the population. Narayana Hrudayalaya aims to add 30,000 beds in small-to-medium towns in the next five years.

The cost of an open heart surgery at the Mysore facility, which is expected to also treat patients from north Kerala and parts of Tamil Nadu, will be 20% cheaper than the main Narayana Hrudayalaya hospital in Bangalore.

Ashwin Naik, co-founder and CEO of Vaatsalya Hospitals, a chain of affordable healthcare facilities in semi-urban and rural areas, said there is a big gap in quality healthcare in India. "As government hospitals are not funded enough, this is throwing up opportunities for entrepreneurs."

"Aravind Eye Care System and Narayana Hrudayalaya have a history of pioneering low-cost approaches," he said, observing that he expects Narayana Hrudayalaya to be successful with this model as well. "An affordable healthcare model is sustainable because it offers volumes," said Dr Shetty.

Larsen & Toubro, India's biggest engineering company that built the Mysore hospital, was initially sceptical about undertaking the project under such a tight budget. "At first they said, it is not possible," said Viren Shetty, who expects the hospital to treat around 210,000 outpatients and perform 3,750 surgeries in the first year for revenues of Rs 18 crore. "We will break even in eight months."

Narayana Hrudayalaya also reduced capital expenditure by buying low-cost medical equipment from small Indian firms and having a pay-per-use model for the more expensive ones. Also, the electricity bill is expected to be much lower due to the absence of elevators and air-conditioning as well as better use of natural light. "Back at the main hospital, we get Rs 1 crore as electricity bill," said Shetty.

The hospital will also outsource some activities requiring special skill-sets like tele-radiology to its main hospital to ensure optimal utilisation of specialists. Similarly, activities such as claims processing, discharge summary preparation would also be outsourced to the larger Narayana Hrudayalaya facilities.

After Mysore, Narayana Hrudayalaya will open a similar hospital in Bhubaneshwar, Orissa. "Once we are successful, this model can be easily replicated across varied geographies," said Viren Shetty.

Columbia Asia Hospital, Mysore receives NABH accreditation

Quote:
Columbia Asia Hospital, Mysore received the NABH (National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare providers) accreditation, the highest national recognition for quality patient care and safety. The hospital achieved this in a short span of a little over three years after opening.

“We have met all the standards set by NABH and the accreditation is a testimony to our commitment to provide the best quality of healthcare to the people of Mysore,” said Dr Viju Rajan, general manager, Columbia Asia Hospital- Mysore.

The NABH accreditation process covers all aspects of hospital management; like fire safety, disaster handling, infection control practices, equipment maintenance, customer feedback, credential checking of the staff and doctors, employee satisfaction etc. which ensures that the hospital quality is achieved and maintained. The accreditation once granted is valid for three years but requires a reassessment in the middle of this period.

The NABH is part of the Quality Council of India (QCI) set up by the government of India as an autonomous body to establish and operate accreditation programme for healthcare organisations. The board is structured to cater to much desired needs of the consumers and to set benchmarks for progress of the healthcare industry.

Speaking on NABH accreditation, Dr Nandakumar Jairam, group medical director and chairman, Columbia Asia Hospitals said, “We have grown extensively in the past few years and are now recognized for the quality of our service; and the Mysore hospital has been a major contributor to our growth process. The Hospital that started operations three years back has already become well recognised and sought after. We have always focused on Technology and International standards of clinical care combined with the highest levels of Quality.”

“This accreditation further strengthens our commitment to patient safety and International quality healthcare,” he added.

The NABH certificate is an added feather in the hospitals’ endeavour to provide quality healthcare and spread awareness on healthy living among the people of Mysore. The hospital, apart from having set high standards in clinical care, has been working on various healthcare awareness drives that has built a positive impact on the people of Mysore.

Columbia Asia Hospitals Pvt. Ltd. is one of the first healthcare companies to enter the country through 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) route. The Group is owned by over 150 private equity companies, fund management organizations and individual investors. It currently operates six multi-specialty community hospitals, one referral hospital and one clinic in India. The company also operates hospitals in Malaysia (10), Vietnam (three), and Indonesia (one). The Indian management operations are managed from its office in Bengaluru.

Dr Devi Shetty enters low-cost hospitals

Quote:
An air conditioned hospital room is now de rigueur in most private hospitals with any hospital worth its name preferring to be centrally-air conditioned But, this means a costlier healthcare service. A hospital minus these frills would help cut cost of healthcare to the end-consumer.

That’s the model Dr Devi Shetty is trying to take to the smaller cities. Dr Devi Shetty famous for his ‘heart factory’ as called by some international journals, is now setting up low-cost hospitals to reach the maximum number of people.

The chain will cut the cost of building them, a senior level source said, “The building will depend on more of natural light and air. Also, it will be of just one floor.”

These hospitals will provide all major specialisations, added the source. In the pipeline are hospitals in Mysore, Shimoga, Sillguri and Bhubaneswar. As of now, Mysore hospital is in its finishing stages. The hospital has begun to offer outpatient services. It is waiting for the Union Health Minister to give a date when he would come and inaugurate it. Meanwhile, work has begun on the Shimoga facility too. The hospitals will have about 200-300 beds and is expected to cost Rs 30 crore each to build.

As of now, on average Narayana Hrudayalaya spends $1,500 on each patient. The hospital group believes it can bring it down to just $800 to take care of a patient with the model.

The building for these hospitals will be built using pre-fabricated materials. This is expected to cut the cost and time on building them, taking six to eight months. The group has tied up with L&T to implement the project.

Govt gifts 45-cr plot to Ramakrishna Mission

Quote:
Though the govt estimates the two-acre property value at Rs 15 crore, the market value is three times over. The state is also willing to spend another Rs 6 cr to shift the existing school and training centre for a Swami Vivekananda memorial

While BJP leaders have publicly refused to allot land for Tipu University, the government has quietly handed over nearly two acres of prime land in Mysore to the Ramakrishna Mission free of cost. It’s bad enough that the market value of the property could touch Rs 45 crore. But there’s more: The government is willing to spend another Rs 6 crore to shift the existing school and training centre from there.

Government sources said that in October 2012, the chairman of the Ramakrishna Mission in Yadavgiri, Mysore, had requested for the NTM Government school premises and land adjacent to it on behalf of the Ramakrishna Mutt and Mission, Belur, Kolkata.

On January 9, the primary and secondary education department ordered the transfer of the land to Ramakrishna Mutt which wants to set up the Swami Vivekananda Cultural Youth Centre as a memorial.

“Celebrating the 150th birth anniversary of Vivekananda, the Mutt wanted to set up a memorial for him and had sought the land free of cost,” a senior official from the primary and secondary education department. Swami Vivekananda had strong Mysore connections, he added. “Soon after assuming sanyas, he started touring the country and visited the Maharaja of Mysore in November 1892. While in Mysore, Vivekananda stayed at Niranjana Mutt on Narayana Shastri Road,” the official added.

Over the years, the locality where Swamiji had stayed came into the possession of the education department. “A teacher training centre — Block Resource Centre (BRC) — and NTM Government School begun to function from there. Following the government’s decision to hand over the requested land, the PWD department estimated the extent of area as 36591.66 sq ft and the value of both the buildings was estimated at 15.43 crore,” explained another official.

According to the state government order, a copy of which is available with Bangalore Mirror, the government has ordered the shifting of the existing buildings to different locations to make way for the memorial. “The transfer and building of the BRC at a new place would cost the government Rs 6 crore. The state cabinet has agreed to sanction additional funds of Rs 6 crore to the education department and further merge NTM Government School with the Devaraja Primary School, located just 200m away from the said school, as there are hardly any teachers and students at the school,” the order said.

Govt to consider reducing taxes in healthcare

Quote:
The Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) organisedKarnataka Health Summit with the theme 'Tipping point for Healthcare System' on Thursday. Dr DeviShetty, Chairman, NarayanaHrudayalaya group of Hospitals spoke about the importance of Empowering women and recruting more of women staff to Healthcare sector.

Chandrasekhar, immediate Past Chairman, CIIKarnataka and Managing Director, Bhorukha Power welcomed the gathering and stressed on the need for good quality healthcare at afforadable prices. The major challenge Karnataka faces in the Health sector is the lack of trained medical personnel. According to Dr DeviShetty within five years smart software will take over the role of doctors and make smarter diagnosis than doctors themselves.

The problem the healthcare sector is faced with is not money, it's manpower said Dr Shetty. Dr Shetty also said India is short of at least one millon doctors and two million nurses. The cost of health care is increasing heavily, the reason being huge taxes. Nearly 27% of the Hospital Building Costs are due to the Taxes (Central & State) and taxes are also high on medical equipment and medicines. Maheshwar Rao, IAS, Commissioner of Industrial Development & Director - Industries & Commerce, Government of Karnataka spoke about the huge opportunities available in Karnataka for healthcare sector. The State government is planning to set up one medical college in all the districts in Karnataka and also a Medical Instrumentation Cluster in Mysore.

The Government is also developing pharma parks in three districts in Karnataka, mainly Hassan, Chikballapur and Yadgir. Dr Varma Vegesna, Chairman CII Healthcare Subcommittee and Managing Director, Lazaurus Hospitals delivered the theme address at the Summit. He spoke about the importance of having green hospitals in Healthcare sector. Dr Varma also spoke about the huge potential of Karnataka to develop into a medical tourism destination.

Dr Kalra, CEO, NABH attributed the growth of Healthcare sector to the growth in Technology, lower direct taxes and increasing insurance coverage. He also spoke about the importance of safety in Healthcare sector. He mentioned that lot of action is needed in terms of accessibility of healthcare service and quality of patient care.

"I WILL RAISE MYSORE VARSITY TO HIGHER GRADE IN FOUR YEARS": PROF. RANGAPPA

Quote:
"I will strive hard to take Mysore University, which is an acclaimed institution the world over, to the higher echelons of edu-cation in four years," assured Prof. K.S. Rangappa, Vice-Chancellor of Mysore University here this morning.

Addressing his maiden press meet after taking charge as the VC on Jan.11, Prof. Rangappa, the former VC of Karnataka State Open University, thanked the Governor and the State government for appointing him to the VC's post of the most respected University in the world.

The University has got Five Star and 'A+' Grade accreditation from NAAC. The Central Government had recognised the Varsity as an 'Institution of Excellence' and awarded a special grant of Rs. 100 crore for establishing a Centre of Excellence in Biodiversity, Bioprospecting and Sustainable Development and also to strengthen infrastructural facilities, which has already been utilised. However, it needs about Rs. 100 to Rs. 300 crore for taking up new schemes and for resource improvement, he said adding that he plans to approach IT and BT companies like Infosys and WIPRO for funds.

Though the University needs Rs. 110 crore per year for its overall expenses, the government releases just Rs. 59 crore per year which does not even cover the salary and pension of the employees. Hence, I will have to mobilise an additional Rs. 50 crore, the new VC said.

"After taking charge of the University, I have convinced the State government to release Rs. 25 crore to cover the expenses of the Varsity in which many economically backward students study," he disclosed.

Outreach programmes: Prof. Rangappa, laying out his visions for the centre of education, said there are plans to start outreach programmes and the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Govt. of India, has been requested to release more grants so that the University can give more importance to academic and research fields, improve teaching and non-teaching staff and thus provide qualitative education, apart from increasing scientific research.

Lecture Series: "It has been mooted to establish an International Centre for Biology and Drug Discovery at a cost of Rs. 50 crore at the University, as also introduction of monthly Mysore University Lecture Series in which distinguished scientists and research scholars will interact with the students and the general public.
