The Launch of Ayushman Bharat – Comments from Dr.Azad Moopen
Dr Azad Moopen – Founder Chairman & Managing Director – Aster DM Healthcare
“With the launch of Ayushman Bharat, India has added Right to Healthcare as a safety net to people who are in the lower economic segment. It will provide the much-needed access of secondary / tertiary healthcare to more than half of Indian population. Based on the current promise of seamless connectivity and payment mechanism, more and more private providers may get encouraged to subscribe to this scheme and hence it will become a truly universal scheme on a public private partnership model. This scheme will also accelerate the requirement for more healthcare providers and professionals at the grassroot level.
At Aster DM Healthcare, we are constantly striving to make quality healthcare easily affordable and accessible for people and our operations are in India are guided by this principle. We are looking at ways in which we could be part of this mammoth scheme.”
