Traditional Hospitals Vs Corporate Hospitals – But what a patient wants?

“Traditional Hospitals”. Really? Is that even a term?  No, even I haven’t heard it ever, but I just chose to call a few hospitals (or a type of hospitals) as “Traditional”. And I have my reasons. There are a few hospitals running from two, three or even more decades and are run by a single or a group of famous (mostly) doctors who believe that all a patient needs is “just to get treated”. And they are good at it, I don’t deny at all. But they ignore the fact that patient is already suffering from his ailments and he & his attendants don’t require suffering from the hospital’s lackluster services. I am not saying that services shall be prioritized over treatment, but at least it shall be acknowledged and addressed. Let me give you an example from my own experience. I was meeting with the director (a senior doctor) of a famous hospital (so called traditional of course) to get him on-board of my startup “Ineeddoctor”. Through our startup, we help patients in getting hospital’s services in easy & economical way. And when I say easy, I mean less harassment & priority services. After I had explained, this famous doctor says, he liked our concept but he wouldn’t use it, because he doesn’t want the patients to feel like “Maharajas” (King). All I had to do next was to “Get up & Go”, because that is exactly what I wanted the patients to feel like. Read how just a call can help patients to save thousands. So what’s with corporate hospitals? They are actually very good when it comes to service. They do everything to woo the patients into their hospitals and give them a high level of “Professionally Friendly” environment. The moment a patient enters the hospital, he finds himself amidst the smiling staff, gorgeous interiors, clean & hygienic environment and every wanted or un-wanted amenities like cafeteria, Room Service, Creche etc. In short, he feels like a Maharaja, but gets to think every moment that he certainly needs to pay extra for this. Now comes the treatment. Treatment is not bad either (not always, at least). Most of the doctors here are recruited, not owners. Again they are very professional and follow procedures to document everything. They don’t keep anything to intuition. While visiting different hospitals everyday, I feel that many traditional hospitals are moving towards these modern day corporate environments. The owners are even hiring professional administrative staff to manage the hospitals. In the process of doing so, they must realize that an amalgamation of treatment & better services at affordable rates is what a patient needs. Hospitals should aim towards that. After all, in health care, patient should be the king. PS: In no way, I suggest to disrespect your doctor. They are the best things we have got after god and they deserve your respect.

Using “Polythene” is a Fashion but harmful for Nation

  Polythenes are very useful and cheap but in the meanwhile harmful as well. Because it is durable we use polythenes in large quantity in our daily life without knowing its drawbacks or I can say we know very well that how much it is harmful but then also it is very popular between us.            Image Source   Did you know how many animals and plants are dying day by day just because of us, throwing these polybags here and there. Throwing it outside not only looks untidy but is dangerous for birds and many animals who often mistake them as food. And of course polythenes can’t be a substitute of foods. Eating polythene is an open invitation to death.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Image Source   The worst thing about polythene is that it is non-biodegradable. A single plastic bag can take up to 1000 years, to decay completely. As they do not degrade, they remain a dump forever and cause harm to plant life. The chemicals presents in plastic can harm floura and fauna of acquatic and marine life. Some turtle swallow poythene because it resembles them jellyfish. And it ends up with their death.            Image Source   Because it comes in sizes large and small, plastics even affect the world’s tiniest organisms such as plankton. When these organisms become poisoned due to plastic ingestion, this causes problems for the larger animals that depend on them for food. This can cause a whole slew of problems, each step further along the food chain. Plus, it means that plastic are present in the fish that many people eat everyday.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     Image Source   Burning of plastic in the open air, leads to environmental pollution due to the release of poisonous chemicals. The polluted air when inhaled by humans and animals affect their health and can cause respiratory problems.            Image Source   Polythenes are very harmful not only for us but every living beings in the world. Instead of using polybags we can use paper bags or fabric bags. They are the best substitute of polythenes and are ecofreindly as well.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Image Source

Ineeddoctor featured by International Magazine – Biz@India

Another feather on the cap of Ineeddoctor! The startup has been featured among the “Innovative Startups of India” by one of the leading Indian International Magazine Biz@India. Team Ineeddoctor thanks its users for their overwhelming support for making it recognizable. And a special thanks to Ms. Shweta Keshri, the enthusiastic Journalist of Media India Group, who found us and summarized us so well in her story. Here are the excerpts directly from the magazine: Ineeddoctor: Healthcare Just a Touch Away Amit Agrawal’s father, living in Raipur, the capital of the central state of Chhattisgarh, suffered from a chronic lung disease and needed weekly rounds to the doctor. But the routine visits became mental harassment, as the doctors were rarely punctual. This seeded the idea for Ineeddoctor in 2015. What started with just a website with listing of doctors grew with the introduction of call center 9111-31-9111. “In smaller cities, access to internet and smart-phones is limited; moreover a personal touch is very helpful while talking to patients,” says Agrawal. Through Ineeddoctor, a patient can schedule his consultation with preferred doctors, plan for investigations, treatments, surgeries and hospitalization and get discounts in almost everything. Bootstrapped by the three partners: ex-Infosys employees for nine years – Agrawal in the US and Abhishek Tiwari in Australia – and ex-TCS employee Akansh Goyal, the startup has been shortlisted by NASSCOM in the fifth batch of their 10,000 startup programme and is also looking for seed investors. “Although, a small city like Raipur has its challenges but it has advantages in terms of people recognition. Apart from having reached out to Raipur’s maximum population, we expanded our operations to entire state of Chhattisgarh last March,” says Agrawal. In the next five years, it plans to expand to pan India to over 100 cities through tie-ups with major hospitals.

Don’t wait till last minute to register !!

We have noticed that there are many users of Ineeddoctor who register for our membership at the last minute, when they need medical services in a hospital or lab. It is not that, we at Ineeddoctor won’t help them, in fact we do our best to assist in emergencies, but it is advisable to register in Ineeddoctor’s CAP program in advance and keep the CAP ID number & our call center’s direct number 9111-31-9111 (both these come in an SMS once you are registered).

Places where Ineeddoctor’s CAP beats Health Insurance

                                                                      Your search for “What is Health Insurance?” in Google will return you the definition as “Health insurance is a type of insurance coverage that covers the cost of an insured individual's medical and surgical expenses. Depending on the type of health insurance coverage, either the insured pays costs out-of-pocket and is then reimbursed, or the insurer makes payments directly to the provider.” Before we move further, let’s take a look at an interesting fact: In 2011, 3.9% of India's GDP was spent in the health sector. According to the WHO, this is the lowest among the BRICS economies. Out of this 3.9%, health insurance accounts for 5-10% of expenditure, employers account for around 9% while personal expenditure amounts to an astounding 82%. Wow! That is some fact. There is no doubt that Medical insurance is one of the best ways to keep you and your family in the pink of health and I strongly recommend to have yourself enrolled for such health insurance. However, following the fact mentioned above, we know that Health insurance in India is still for the privileged few. Then there is also a marginal difference in trends of Insured individuals among Tier1 cities and others. In Tier1 cities, the percentage of Insured people is higher which is mostly due to group health insurances (covered by employers). So, what happens to Individuals who are not insured and they fall seriously ill, or if they need surgeries or long term treatments? They actually need to pay the full (expensive) hospital bills from their pockets. Since there is a waiting period in most of the Health covers, they can’t signup for insurance after the diagnosis as well. Ineeddoctor’s Community Association Program (or just CAP) comes to the rescue. What it does & how it works? Ineeddoctor.in is a Health Care startup that provides high discounts to individuals at the best hospitals in the city in almost all the things including Consultation, Labs, Diagnostics, Surgeries, Hospital Admissions and Treatments. Any Individual can enroll him(/her)self & their entire family for CAP through the website or by simply calling at 9111-31-9111. The membership is entirely free and once enrolled; the individual would receive a text message with their CAP ID. The next time, he/she needs to see a Doctor or get treatment; they would just have to book the appointment through Ineeddoctor (by call or online) and go to Hospital & get discounts (ranging from 10% to 25% in different services) at the time of billing. Simple isn’t it? So, how is it better than Health Insurance? No. The question in itself is wrong. CAP is not better than Insurance, but of course it helps where an insurance can’t. Here are a few cases where it does: Day-care & Less than 24 Hour Hospitalization – Most health insurance do not cover less than 24 hour admission under their policy. This is where Ineeddoctor’s CAP may help, just no question asked. Consultation & Investigations - Though visits to a doctor and the associated Investigations entail sizeable costs, these are not reimbursed by health policies. But yes, CAP covers it too. Between the lines - On reading between the lines of a health cover, one can know that there are numbers of diseases/illness (mostly serious ones) that are not covered under insurance. This is hardly known to the Insured until he/she faces the problem. Ineeddoctor again doesn’t restrict its users. Waiting Period – Most health covers have waiting periods during which the Insured cannot claim any expenses. Why would Ineeddoctor even care for a waiting period? A patient is patient enough to get benefits. Ineeddoctor doesn’t have to discriminate. You can get discounts from day1. Smaller Cities, towns & rural – As we know, the number of Insured Individuals in these places is comparatively less, but everyone needs treatment and that too in the best hospitals in bigger cities. Ineeddoctor’s CAP can help them take an appointment from their home town and visit the hospital as per availability. Pre-Existing Diseases - One of the realities of health insurance companies is that the guy who is supposed to approve your claims gets maximum incentives to reject or to minimize your claims. So his first act will be to reject the claim reasoning that it is a pre-existing condition. All pre-existing diseases have to be declared upfront at the time of buying the policy. In case identified, the claim is rejected. Ineeddoctor just doesn’t need to know. You better disclose it to Doctors; you would still be getting the discounts from Ineeddoctor. To know more about how to register with Ineeddoctor, read this. All we wish from Ineeddoctor is for you to Stay Healthy! Stay Fit!
