Nowhere in the world is a country with a billion people with an urgent need for quality healthcare. We have limited resources, a fragmented delivery system with a huge variation in practises and guidelines across board, loss of public trust in healthcare providers.  Infact India has very limited public funding for healthcare for a country with a huge disease burden.”

India wants to obtain universal health coverage by 2022. India aspiring to be the next big super power definitely needs to ramp up the healthcare system by enforcing several reforms keeping the following in mind:

 

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->There is an urgent need to bring back patient focussed care back to centre stage

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Innovation, community participation, public private partnership(PPP) model, most essential at the moment

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->State owned secondary and tertiary level care hospitals must either be privatized/outsourced or at least be managed by PPP model, however providing free/subsidized care for the poor must be continued at these facilities.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Greater Insurance penetration, State sponsored micro and macro health insurance systems can help to a great extent.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Cost transparency, information transparency along with awareness creation and health education of the masses can certainly help create a new health care revolution in India.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Medical Tourism must help hospitals cross subsidize our own patients.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Whatever it is providing quality care to 1.2+ billion people is going to be a challenge in any case. As there is no such example anywhere in the world, the innovative solutions have to stem out of our community & Country.

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->Charity has to become part and parcel of every healthcare establishment, As much as 50 % of the care provided must as free for the poor. At the same time we must remember that it is not just the ‘Haves’ and ‘have not’s’ but there is a huge population of “does not have enough” who will need subsidized treatments

<!--[if !supportLists]-->·         <!--[endif]-->“Stay In India” or “Back To India” should become the slogan for the next decade, All the doctors, nurses, paramedical personnel must be inspired to Stay in India or come back to India.

The Story of PEOPLETREE HOSPITALS is quite a fascinating one – A group of doctors (friends from college days) come together and dream of a hospital that is purely patient focused, doctor driven and peer respected. This small group had one thing in common – they were all from humble middle class backgrounds with extra-ordinary skill sets; trained in some of the best hospitals across the globe and all hungry to transform the current health care situation. Their dream required lots of money which they never had! They left their jobs and dared to venture. Their sheer conviction and commitment, made a plausibly impossible task possible. Today PEOPLE TREE Hospitals is a reality.

Here are some statistics - Total Number of patients seen is over 27000 within 8 months of full operations - Current average foot falls per day is over 200 patients achieved in Oct ‘14. - Crossed 100 In patients (IPD) discharged in April (within 2 full months of operations)- 141% growth in IPD patients discharged in Oct ‘14 vis-à-vis Apr ‘14. -Average month on month growth of 19.4%in the last 7 months. But probably the most positive reinforcement is in the feedback from patients about the unique treatment experience the hospital offers. PEOPLE TREE Friends say that this is just a proof of concept, once this project becomes successful and sustainable – the vision is to spread across tier two cities to make quality health care accessible & affordable to each & every one. Their model of creating an Infosys in Healthcare by making everyone a stake holder in the company is probably the right model for our country. Health Care Transformation has indeed begun!

 

The PEOPLE TREE Foundation (www.peopletreefoundation.in) –PEOPLE TREE friends did not stop at creating a world class healthcare facility, but quickly realized that if we ever have to touch move and inspire a billion People by providing quality Health, Education & Health Education, there has to be a charitable angle to it. Hence came the PEOPLE TREE Foundation, a unique non-profit organization committed to realize the dream of a disease and disability free India.  The Foundation aims to provide services spanning the fields of Health, education & Health Education. This Charity wing has recently launched its most ambitious ‘PEOPLE TOUCH’ Program through which 100 complex surgeries will be done completely free of cost for 100 poor and deserving patients in 100 days.  The estimated cost of these surgeries is approximately one crore rupees. If this becomes successful they hope to extend it to conduct free surgeries every day and some day in the future they wish to conduct 50% of the surgeries for free on a perpetual basis. The foundation also supporting free education or poor children.
