Special Infrastructure - Health:
  • The Healthcare landscape in Karnataka is changing rapidly with corporate and foreign hospitals setting up centres offering high quality healthcare.
  • The health city concept is gaining prevalence with the presence of specialized medical research, collaboration with healthcare operators and a self sustaining health cluster including hospital, wellness, and residential centres such as Narayana Health City.
Government Initiatives:
  • Three-tier health infrastructure comprising primary health centres, health units, community health centres and sub-centres state.
  • Policy of the government is to establish one primary health centre and one dispensary each for every 30,000 inhabitants and 15,000 - 20,000 inhabitants respectively.
  • A sub-centre for 5,000 inhabitants.
Medical Tourism:

The cost of health care and waiting time is more in US & European countries and hence there is a wider scope for medical tourism in Karnataka since the super specialty hospitals are offering medico and clinical facility in line with international standards and the cost of treatment and hospitalization is affordable to the foreign patients.

The concept can provide healthcare in multiple specialties like cardiac, plastic surgery, orthopedic, nephrology, oncology, neurology, etc.

Tele-Medicine:

Narayana Hrudayalaya has one of the world's largest tele-cardiology networks in the world and has tied up with the Indian Space Research Organization(ISRO) to reach out to patients inside and outside India through tele-medicine.
