NATHEALTH-Healthcare Federation of India has submitted a set of recommendations to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and NITI Aayog on the urgent need to scale up the vaccination drive by including private diagnostics labs and home care providers in the inoculation process. These steps will not only accelerate vaccination numbers at the community level but will also play a pivotal role to stem rising cases of COVID-19 in India, effectively scaling up numbers and expanding coverage in a short span of time.
In the representation to the Health Ministry, NATHEALTH has suggested involving other healthcare providers with the skilled medical workforce to ramp up to the vaccination drive. Some of the key suggestions submitted along with the rationale to the Government are:
Dr Harsh Mahajan President, NATHEALTH and Founder and Chief Radiologist, Mahajan Imaging said, “The private sector has supported the government in the fight against the pandemic and these recommendations submitted by NATHEALTH is an effort to further lend active support to the Government. Some hospitals are back to their pre-COVID levels of occupancy and also focusing on non-COVID patients.
