Patient Education and Hospital Accreditation

Medical tourism is becoming a "hot and happening" area in India , and is attracting considerable investments and interest. The Confederation of Indian Industries ( CII) , India’s premier business association , which works to create and sustain an environment conducive to the growth of industry in India, has held National workshops on Hospital Accreditation Standards, so as to be able to attract foreign patients; and improve the quality of healthcare in India, since it realises the enormous scope India has to export medical services by treating patients from overseas.

I was very pleased to see that they have a session on Patient Rights and Education. I do hope this means that all large accredited hospitals in India will soon have their own Patient Education Resource Centers !
