In India, private healthcare accounts for almost 74 per cent of the country’s total healthcare expenditure. Medical tourism is a thing now, and the major factor responsible for its growth is the presence of learned medical staff and state-of-the-art equipment in private hospitals and diagnostic facilities. This growth in the private healthcare sector has also boosted the overall figures in hospitals and hospital beds, with the private sector’s share in hospital beds estimated at 40 percent.
On the consumer side too, things are encouragingly bullish: due to rising incomes, easier access to high-quality healthcare facilities, greater penetration of health insurance and greater awareness of personal health and hygiene, the expenditure on healthcare is on the rise in India, with the market is expected to record a CAGR of 16.28 per cent during 2008-22.
The point behind all these data points is that it is a great time to be in the medical profession, and even better to start a private practice clinic or any medical centre in the private sector.
If you are a doctor planning to capitalize on this trend in the healthcare industry, you are most likely thinking of opening a private clinic of your own. Often, setting up a private practice is considered a milestone of professional success in the medical field. If you already have a private practice, you might be looking for ways to stay ahead of the curve and get the latest technologies and equipment. Whatever stage you are at, in order to stay competitive, you need to make constant investments – and these are in addition to the real estate, staff, billing system and other medical infrastructure.
