In foreign countries, Indian doctors are known for their qualifications and skills. This is the greatest benefit for hospitals in India to attract more medical tourists. India also provides advanced life saving healthcare services like organ transplants, cardio-vascular surgery, eye treatment, hip replacement, in-vitro fertilization and much more. According to a CH-McKinsey report, there are 5,00,000 doctors and 7,37,000 nurses serving in the Indian healthcare sector and 18,000 persons who get qualified as doctors every year from 170 medical colleges. This human resource pool of skilled manpower will help to meet the rising demand for healthcare services in India. Additionally, an ambience of well-being and cordiality is created so that their clients feel comfortable and well-attended while they are on treatment. However, the major concern is of the trained medical professionals who go abroad thereby reducing the service capabilities of hospitals in the country.
The above mentioned facts add to the increasing influx of tourists who aim for medical tourism in Kerala, where one of the first steps to be implemented is the use of medical disposables like probe covers into the health care system.
