will you attract and maintain doctors nurses and other paramedical staff for hospitals in smaller cities The doctors are concerned about their children getting good education — fortunately today Tier II and III cities have excellent schools and this has helped us attract and send skilled people to these cities Every year about a thousand doctors from the UK apply to return to India and work for Apollo Hospitals We select about 300 from them This year 80 per cent of the selected doctors have opted to work at Reach hospitals Shruti Ambavat: How has private equity helped you in terms of growing your business Is there a deal with KKR (Kohlberg Kravis Roberts) We have completed a deal We have taken Rs 550 crore from KKR to clear our debt and to also expand in new areas in the healthcare sector beyond hospitals Shobhana Subramanian: What are the new areas you are venturing into We will venture into health IT We need to reach people on the move The environment for 3G 4G mobile broadband is developing and we want to use the cellphone to bring health awareness to the public and to keep them well Sunil Jain: You are buying into them as a private equity firm We have already started a company for health IT where we will bring in private equity plus provide solutions to reach out to the masses We are also working on home health This means a nurse or physiotherapy for patients who have been discharged In the future we want to take it to the next level where a discharged patient or elderly patient is connected 24X7 to the hospital through IT systems and we can reach out to him

to practise in villages and Tier II and III cities Today we have seven Reach hospitals and are adding six more The focus is to take healthcare to rural areas to help patients who travel at least 200-300 kilometres to reach a hospital Abantika Ghosh: There is an ongoing issue of pending bills with the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) Some private hospitals have left the CGHS and some have threatened to leave How can this be resolved Hospitals should be transparent however the CGHS should also be transparent about the cost They are reimbursing at 2006 tariffs We pay in three weeks for whatever we buy But they give repayment in six months and deduct as they please Abantika Ghosh: There is a perception that the corporate healthcare system has reduced trust in the doctor-patient relationship How do you look at it I am a doctor first My patients still love me One must continue to enjoy the trust of patients A one-day gain may become a long-term loss if the patient loses trust Hospitals and doctors must be transparent However patients should also understand that costs vary from disease to disease and surgery to surgery Surabhi: A lot of Indian drugmakers are facing flak from foreign regulators on manufacturing practices with Ranbaxy being the latest What is you view on this Also will you continue to sell Ranbaxy drugs Ranbaxy is not the only company they have pointed to others also I don’t find anything wrong I have met the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) head Their point is clear and I agree A drug instead of improving may harm fatally So I agree there needs to be strict discipline in manufacturing Our government should also be strict Last time we had stopped Ranbaxy drugs for sometime and sought a detailed explanation and only resumed selling the drugs after the government of India vouched for their safety Pritha Chatterjee: There was a Supreme Court judgment on medical negligence last year against Kolkata’s AMRI hospital How do you react as a hospital group Also have you taken any precautions We did not see reason in the judgment A doctor has all-pervasive power of prescribing or taking a specific course of treatment How can the hospital be held responsible Also where the doctor is concerned I can’t say whether he was negligent or not It was a difficult case We have guidelines for doctors We have also discussed legal aspects of treating patients Pallavi Ail: Are you planning to rope in a partner for your pharmacy business When we talk about a partner it is for two reasons Primarily how can we run the pharmacy business better — we are running it quite efficiently as of now The second thing is the sourcing We are not looking for an investor in the pharmacy but a partner who has dual sourcing He will source from India and we will be able to source from him When I get the right partner I will come back to you A partner can bring three things First if they are large they know how to manage a large chain That we have learnt already and we have a strong IT system to manage the chain of pharmacies Secondly it is the sourcing That can give some cost benefit But the partner should also source from India ie we take some products from them and they buy some products from Apollo It should be an equal partnership Shobhana Subramanian: Who are you more proud of — Dr Reddy the doctor or Dr Reddy the entrepreneur The doctor I am a doctor and I miss seeing patients Shobhana Subramanian: Why have you given up practice Because of time and also I have not been able to keep up with new technology As a cardiologist so much has happened in this field and newer things are happening If you don’t have time you cannot keep up If I had stayed at my initial 150-bed hospital I would still be practising But then that would
