Outstanding and Receivables: A Long overdue problem faced by service providers
Doctors are not a happy fraternity today. There are several reasons for this.
  • Practicing doctors live in fear of criminal prosecution or violence.
  • Specialists are unhappy because of the unrealistic targets they are expected to meet.
  • Corporate hospitals are unhappy because they are denied their due reimbursements in time.
  • Service doctors and medical faculty are unhappy because their salaries are not at par and the new 7th Pay Commission has reduced the non- Practicing Allowance (NPA).
  • MBBS doctors are unhappy because they do not have opportunities to get a postgraduate degree.
The medical profession provides services to Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS), Employees Health Scheme (EHS), Public Sector Units (PSUs), Ex-servicemen Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS) and similar organizations at highly subsidized rates. Yet the due reimbursement is delayed for months together and is given without any interest.

Autism, a highly misdiagnosed condition in India
Patience and love along with therapy can a child and families and children cope with this condition
New Delhi, 04 July 2017: According to a recently conducted study, 1 in 89 Indian children between 2 and 9 years of age are diagnosed with autism. As many as 2.2 million children and 13 million people in the country live with this condition. It is alarming to note that while the cases of autism are showing an upward trend in India, there is not much awareness about this condition. There is also much stigma associated with autism in India.
The signs and symptoms of autism can be observed in the first three years of a child itself.
