Medical Tourism and Certification/Accreditation of Medical Institutions

As covered earlier, medical tourism is being widely promoted by the Indian government. Certification/Accreditation of medical institutions definitely play a large role in attracting foreign nationals to Indian hospitals for treatment. With healthcare delivery players in the private sector vying for a share of international medical tourists, there is bound to be an increase in the number of medical institutions being certified/accredited.

Developments and Newer Areas of Medicine

Combined with the required increase in the density of medical professionals per 1,000 persons, as well as the projected increase in population, significant capacity and skill development is required in the following areas:



Technicians and paramedics

Among the areas outlined above, the requirement of nurses, technicians and paramedics account for over 75% of the incremental human resource requirement.

With more people opting for preventive tests, the demand for Medical Laboratory Technicians has grown.
