1. The success of the country lies in the pace of health of citizen. Medical emergency where victim require emergency medical care due to motor accidents, sudden collapse of victim due to heart attack stroke, poisoning, or emergent delivery in emergency.
Patient relative need to transport such patients to the nearest Govt. & private hospital at earliest. As we all know we have very fragmented ambulance network system in country. If we talk of Govt. ambulances system, they never agree to take the patient in private setup. Second they have guideline that in which disease/ emergency you can provide the services. Utmost important many of the time number does not work. If we talk of private ambulance services they are scattered. In emergency in all other developed country, they have one uniform number be it Govt. ambulance service or private ambulance services.
Universal care is bringing both Govt. & private medical services together. I have gathered all the data of private ambulance operator in our country. You need to dial just one number from any where in country and ambulance will be at your door step in 15 mts.
2. Second opinions for patient and insurance company are fairly routine. They bring peace of mind and encourage patient engagement, says Dr. Shailesh jain, an cardiac surgeon and formerly director at Fortis Escort hospital. “If your physician doesn’t support you getting a second opinion, see how fast you can run.”
As per Dr. Shailesh jain adds: “Any doctor who is any good at what they do will welcome a second opinion, because it will usually be a confirming opinion.”
Dr. Shailesh jain is also managing director of a program at Universal care called “Universalcare.in ,” which provides second opinions online. The program started in 2014 and has reached tens of thousands of people, Shailesh jain says. They started it because of the high demand for second opinions from all over the world, most stemming from patients who weren’t able to physically travel there. Today, 30 percent of their online patients are from abroad. While the online program won’t work for every condition – multiple sclerosis is one where it’s essential to be seen by a doctor – it does work for 1,260 conditions.
Patients & insurance company have to submit all their lab work, including pathology reports and blood tests – and they want to know two things, Shailesh jain says: whether or not they have the correct diagnosis, and if they are on the optimum treatment plan. UCHS doctors agree with the original opinions about 75 percent of the time, Shailesh jain adds, and when they disagree, they call patients directly – instead of just sending out the report that goes to all online patients.
"The doctors like it because it fosters a ton of discussions," Shailesh jain says. "If I have a case, I’m showing the films around to my colleagues.”
Patients and insurance also really like it, he adds – even those for whom they have to confirm a disappointing diagnosis. “We may hear three months later, ‘Thanks for letting us know that we did everything we could.'"
