Fighting medical corruption in India

After blowing the lid off doctors taking cuts for referrals and prescribing treatment for profit, Dr Samiran Nundy suggests procedure audits and computerized records to right this wrong practice.

The first step to fighting corruption is to expose it, and this is a movement in the right direction.

Doctors need patients, and if they can cut out the middlemen in order to reach out to patients directly, they will not need to receive or provide kickbacks or cuts !

Patients are not helpless and powerless either. If they empower themselves with Information Therapy, they will be able to differentiate between a good doctor and a bad one. The quality of a doctor's answers do depend upon the quality of the patient's questions - and patients can learn how to ask good questions !
