HEALTH CARE SECTOR

The healthcare sector as an industry is expanding rapidly and has not been as severely impacted by recent economic slowdown as some of the other industries. It comprises of hospital services, diagnostic services, diagnostic products, medical technology, clinical trial services and clinical research organizations. This sector is predominantly privatized and accounts for more than 80 percent of total healthcare spending in India with almost 75 to 80 percent of hospitals being managed by private sector.

Significantly low presence of physicians in rural and semi-urban areas has led to the limited access to proper healthcare facilities for the people living in these areas. Telemedicine is considered to be one of the solutions to this lacuna in accessibility to health care services in rural and semi-urban areas. Growth of IT sector in India which plays crucial role in telemedicine has led to emergence of this sector in India. Tele radiology has emerged very fast with increasing number of foreign hospitals active in this space. Many hospitals have adopted the approach of public – private partnerships (“PPP”) to render services through telemedicine.

Healthcare sector is highly regulated in India. It is governed by various acts that cover establishment of hospitals, various services offered, medical professionals rendering services in the hospital as well as additional service offered by the hospital like cafeteria, pharmacy, ambulance etc.
