Reasons for the Growing Demands of Home-based Health Care Services

At present, the world healthcare is witnessing a sea of advancements with the inclusion of home-based healthcare being an integral catalyst.

The Indian healthcare market is growing fast, alongside the surmounting cost of medical services at hospitals. The rapidly increasing burden of chronic diseases and the demand for quality and efficient medical care has opened the market up for home-based healthcare services.

This industry has promising prospects as almost 80% of the care that is currently provided in the hospital can be delivered in the home setting, with proper guidance and implementation.

Here are some more vital advantages of home health care, as extolled by Rajiv Mathur, CEO and Founder, Critical Care Unified:

CONVENIENCE – Convenience is a factor that every family member of the ailing looks for, yet hospitals often come with their own set of inconveniences pertaining to visits and monitoring. On the other hand, competent medical staff with an array of equipment is provided at the comfort of home, obviating the hassle associated with hospital visits for the patient and the family around.

INFECTION CONTROL –A sanitized environment in the home eliminates one source of complication to such an extent that clinical results are comparable or better with fewer complications when home care is provided to individuals with chronic conditions.

COST - The cost associated with private healthcare in India is forbiddingly high for the middle class. In such a scenario, home health care is a cost-effective alternative. Putting up an ICU facility at home, complete with equipment and medical expertise, would range between Rs. 8500/- to Rs. 10,000/- a day, cutting the cost greatly.

FOCUSSED ATTENTION – Often, when it comes to hospitals, there is a lack of focused attention as a plethora of ailing patients with sensitive requirements, needs catering to on a simultaneous basis. For home health care, with the dedicated staff at home, the patient gets much better attention as compared to a hospital where each staff is assigned, several patients.
