Moving towards a healthier India

The stage is set for the Modi government to signal its seriousness about transforming India’s under performing healthcare system

With expectations running high about the Narendra Modi government’s first full-year budget, the stage is set for the centre to signal its seriousness about transforming India’s under performing healthcare system and committing investments for a long-term payoff for all Indians. By ramping up investments in healthcare, the government will have the perfect opportunity to start a virtuous cycle of health. It will improve productivity, enable greater consumption and boost economic growth, as well as help the Make in India campaign become a reality.

Healthcare reform can protect Indians from out-of-pocket expenditure burden, create 15 million additional health services jobs by 2025 and allow the country to emerge as a global hub for innovative, low-cost health products and services. As we have seen, a business-as-usual approach to health won’t work and can hurt India’s future growth, development and competitiveness. According to one estimate, the burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) alone will cost India $6.2 trillion by 2030.

Promoting healthcare comes under CSR ambit

Filed under: Announcements, Healthcare 

Source : 6 Apr, 2014 – Economic Times

NEW DELHI: Activities undertaken by corporates to promote healthcare will be considered as social welfare activity under the new companies law that came into effect this month.

Under the Companies Act, 2013, certain class of companies is required to shell out at least 2 per cent of three-year annual average net profit towards Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) activities.

The Corporate Affairs Ministry, which is implementing the Companies Act, has now clarified that promoting healthcare would come under the CSR ambit.

In this regard, the Ministry has issued an official communication making certain changes to the notification on CSR issued on February 27.

Changes have been made in Schedule VII of the new Act. In Schedule VII, notified on February 27, it was mentioned that “eradicating hunger, poverty and malnutrition,preventive healthcare and sanitation and making available safe drinking water”, among others would come under the CSR ambit.

The change, in the wordings now, is ‘promoting healthcare, including preventive health care’.
The move comes in the wake of many representations made to the Ministry seeking clarity on promotion of health care in the context of CSR norms.

As per the new companies law, CSR activities would have to be within India. They would apply to companies having at least Rs 5 crore net profit, or Rs 1,000 crore turnover or Rs 500 crore net worth.

Such companies would need to spend two per cent of their three-year average annual net profit on CSR activities in each financial year, beginning 2014-15 fiscal.

Livelihood enhancement and rural development projects, working towards protection of national heritage, art and culture, including restoration of buildings and sites of historical importance and works of art, setting up public libraries, promotion and development of traditional arts and handicrafts would come under CSR ambit.

Various activities aimed at reducing inequalities faced by socially and economically backward groups have been included.

Measures for the benefit of armed forces veterans, war widows and their dependents, setting up homes and hostels for women and orphans, setting up of old age homes, day care centres and such other facilities for senior citizens would be considered as CSR work.

Other CSR activities include ensuring ecological balance, protection of flora and fauna, animal welfare, agro-forestry, conservation of natural resources and maintaining quality of soil, air and water.

Britain’s Patient-Safety Crisis Holds Lessons for All

A post by Maureen Bisognano in Harvard Business Review here

In August, Dr. Donald M. Berwick presented the report from the independent National Advisory Group on the Safety of Patients in England (A Promise to Learn — A Commitment to Act: Improving the Safety of Patients in England) to Prime Minister David Cameron in London. The “Berwick Report” reflects on serious problems at the Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust that arose over several years, and the abysmal care received by patients at the trust’s Stafford Hospital in Stafford, England, during that time. I served on the advisory group, and I’m still asking how a trusted organization could deteriorate so completely without the leaders’ awareness or action? Could it happen elsewhere? How can we, as leaders, prevent these failures in the future?
