Present System of Healthcare Plagued by Several Loopholes: Minister Kamineni Srinivas

Pointing out that some people come in luxury cars to avail treatment under NTR Vaidya Seva, Andhra Pradesh Minister For Health And Medical Education Kamineni Srinivas said that the present system of healthcare both in government and private hospitals was plagued by several loopholes.

He also said that though it is meant for the poorer sections, out of budget of Rs.200 crore, Rs.40 crore is claimed for dental and Rs.30 crore for eye care. He was speaking at the one-day seminar conducted on cost management in healthcare sector by Southern Regional Council (ICAI).

"If Rs.70 crore out of an allocation of Rs.200 crore per annum goes to treatment of eyes and teeth (non-life-saving procedures), what about the need for treatment of ailments involving other vital organs of the body," he said.

The minister further said that on the whole, the patients' satisfaction level was very low.

Stating that the state government would encourage Public Private Partnership mode of investment in healthcare in big way, he said they were also studying the tariff models of Central Government Health Scheme, Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences and Sri Venkateswara Institute of Medical Sciences.

The minister said it was a matter of shame that infant mortality rate and maternal mortality rate had remained very high in Andhra Pradesh adding the state was working hard to reduce it drastically.
