Early Screening & Diagnosis Is Key To Affordable Healthcare !!!

Screening examinations are tests performed to find disease before symptoms begin.

The goal of screening is to detect disease at its earliest and most treatable stage.

Screening helps in diagnosing early and treating early to reduce Cost of Healthcare and early recovery .

Screening tests may include laboratory tests to check blood and other fluids, genetic tests that look for inherited genetic markers linked to disease, and imaging tests that produce pictures of the inside of the body.

In heart screening, individuals with no signs or symptoms of coronary artery disease — the most common form of heart disease — may be evaluated to measure:

• The amount of cholesterol carried in the blood known as low-density lipoproteins (LDL)—high levels of which can lead to a buildup in the arteries—and high-density lipoproteins (HDL), which absorb cholesterol and carry it back to the liver, where it is flushed from the body.

• Blood glucose levels, the amount of sugar present in the blood.

• The amount of C-reactive protein in the blood with a test called high-sensitivity c-reactive protein (hs-crp) assay. C-reactive protein appears in higher amounts when there is inflammation or swelling somewhere in the body.

• Blood pressure levels, the force of blood against the artery walls both when the heart beats and when it is at rest (systolic and diastolic, respectively).

Depending on the results of initial screening tests and the presence of risk factors for coronary artery disease, your doctor may recommend additional testing, including:
• Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG), which measures the electrical activity of the heart and reveals information on heart rate and rhythm.

• Exercise cardiac stress test (also called a cardiac stress test or exercise electrocardiogram) which involves walking on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike at increasing levels of difficulty, while heart rate and rhythm, blood pressure and the electrical activity of the heart (using electrocardiography) are monitored to determine if there is adequate blood flow to the heart when the heart is stressed. Patients who are unable to exercise instead receive a medication that makes the heart beat harder and faster.

• Echocardiography, which uses ultrasound to create moving pictures of the heart. In a stress echocardiography, an ultrasound of the heart is performed before and after the heart is stressed either through exercise or a medication that stimulates the heart.

India is burdened with an emerging problems of chronic non-communicable diseases such as cardiovascular, diabetes, cancer which are now the leading cause of mortality.

To address these challenges, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley on February 1 unveiled the world’s largest government-funded health programme called National Health Protection Scheme (NHPS), covering 10 crore families or approximately 50 crore population, with Rs 5 lakh insurance cover per family per year. The scheme is for secondary and tertiary healthcare, mainly for hospital care.

The government has followed this announcement with a comprehensive plan that was announced on June 5th through an announcement from *Dr. Indu Bhushan, CEO, Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Swasthya Suraksha Mission (PMRSSM) Government of India*

“Recognizing the importance of increasing access by all to critical health services for achieving universal health coverage, the honorable Prime Minister of India announced the Pradhan Mantri Rashtriya Swasthya Suraksha Mission (PMRSSM).

This is a key pillar of the comprehensive health care vision of the Government of India.

This ambitious initiative covers the health care costs of up to five lakh rupees for 10 crore households, thereby protecting them from impoverishment due to health-related expenses and allows them to choose between public and private providers for any hospitalization.

At the same time, to build an effective and accountable network of providers, a set of minimum criteria has been developed, based on which hospitals will be empanelled. In addition, performance-linked payment system has been designed to incentivize them to continuously improve quality and patient safety, based on successive milestones. Hospitals qualifying for NABH entry-level accreditation will receive an additional 10%, while those qualifying for full accreditation will receive an additional 15%. To promote equity in access, hospitals providing services in aspirational districts will receive an additional 10%. In addition, States have the flexibility to increase rates up to 10 % or reduce them as much as needed to suit local market conditions. Further States could retain their existing package rates, even if they are higher than the prescribed 10 % flexibility slab.

I am grateful to all the stakeholders who engaged in the consultation process and provided valuable suggestions in finalizing the benefit packages and empanelment criteria. We intend to continuously refine the design of the scheme based on experience in implementation.”

At Genworks Health, we believe this is a path-breaking vision and intervention to address health holistically, in the primary, secondary and tertiary care systems, covering both prevention and health promotion.
