The hospital network India deserves.

On 24th March, 2019, Rohit Kumar felt a sharp pain in his abdomen. The pain was unbearable and he quickly visited a nearby clinic to get it treated. The diagnosis: A hernia which needed to be operated on.

The clinic did not have facilities to conduct surgeries. So, Rohit searched on the internet for a nearby hospital. He checked for reviews on hospitals and doctors and this left him extremely confused.

His  friends, colleagues, physician, nearby pharmacist and insurance agent, all suggested different hospitals. He wasted hours together waiting in queues to seek information to help him decide the hospital for his surgery. He finally zeroed down on one but was not entirely convinced. 

The next concern was the confusing pricing. When he asked for the exact price of the surgery, all he could get was a wide price range. Even on the day of the surgery, he was not entirely sure of how much the surgery would actually cost him. 

He finally went ahead and got the surgery done. The biggest surprise came to him when he was asked to pay ₹15,000 for consumables and other things which were not covered by insurance, this meant that he had to pay it out of his pocket!

Unfortunately, this is an all too familiar story in India.

Managing pain, dread of hospitals, confusing hospital policies and to top it all, unexpected hospital costs, today, this is the story of every other person who undergoes a surgery.

A recent FICCI report shows that there is a steep decline in recent years in the trust people have in hospitals.

Out of 65 million surgeries required to be performed every year in India, only 25 million surgeries actually take place. Hence, it’s not surprising that WHO has placed India in 112th position among 191 countries of the world in conducting surgeries!

We spoke to a lot of patients and there was an overwhelming uniformity on what the average Indian patient needs today:

  1. A brand of affordable hospitals with highly qualified doctors, first-rate infrastructure  
  2. Fixed pricing for a surgery- no more, no less!
  3. A single point of contact at the hospital to answer all questions and help with all procedures and documentation
  4. An experience built around patients to make sure there is everything one needs to feel comfortable before and after the surgery
